Planning the year ahead

Planning ahead is an essential part of business management. Regardless of whether your business is new or has been around for decades, or whether you are growing or thinking of winding down, you need a plan to ensure things that need to happen get done at the right time.

When it comes to purchasing new assets, you should know when the new gear needs to be in your yard. To get it there on time means you need to have preapproved lines of credit set up and ready to go. This process can be time consuming, and, in some cases, quite complicated, so starting early is always a good idea. Once a preapproval has been given by a lender, you can shop for new equipment with peace of mind.

However, you need to be aware that preapprovals come with time limits. This is particularly important if the gear you are buying has a long lead time.
