Keeping to a budget will help you to run your business effectively, increase profits and reduce overheads. Within your main business budget, you will need to allocate separate budgets to different aspects of your business. For example, you will need to set a budget for your office supplies and you will need to plan how this money is spent.
Considering Your Office Supply Needs
To set your budget, you will need to think about your needs. The budget should reasonably be able to cover your office supply needs, even if it means you have to think carefully about what you buy and when. List what you need to complete each of the daily activities undertaken in your office. Compare prices for these items from a number of suppliers to give you some guidance on your potential spend.
