Tax Time doesn’t have to be so taxing for your business

Apr 21, 2009
April 17th – Just two days after tax day. The perfect time to begin preparations anew for next year’s IRS deadline, and do it in a way that makes your life easier.

Start with a self-audit. Where did business fall short last year (besides the bottom line)? How can you create efficiencies? What can you do to get a jump on all that paperwork?

For several reasons, you might want to consider a fleet card that offers online controls and a reporting system. Not only will such a system aid in day-to-day organization, save time and money, it will prevent a last-minute scramble through damaged, dated and downright legitimate receipts. Some other benefits include:

  • Document ALL purchases electronically for error-free record keeping
  • Eliminate unwanted purchases and surprise expenses altogether, like hard-to-explain beef jerky, coffee and smokes
  • Track purchases in real-time whenever you like
  • Set the controls. You decide who gets a card, how much they can purchase with it, and where they can use it.
  • Many happy returns. The right fleet card can save you thousands of dollars a year of fuel and maintenance costs, which is great for building your business.

If you don’t already have a fleet card, are looking for a more comprehensive fleet management program, or just want to get an idea of what’s out there, start at FleetMatch™.  It was created to for the sole purpose of custom-matching fleet cards with fleet-driven businesses like yours.
