 5 Tips on Budgeting

Money is tight for everyone, and creating and sticking to a budget is essential for financial success. We loved these tips from SCORE, and think you will like them to.

  1. Think of a budget as a useful tool--a written financial plan that helps you set goals and measure progress.
  2. Start by coming up with a sales revenue target. Make it your best estimate.
  3. Based on past experience, estimate your cost of goods sold (e.g., 70 percent of sales) and subtract it from the sales revenue to come up with your estimated gross margin.
  4. Forecast variable expenses (items such as travel and commissions that vary according to the level of sales) and fixed expenses (items like taxes and rent that stay the same, regardless of sales). Subtract these expenses from your gross margin to arrive at your estimated net income (before federal taxes).
  5. Break your annual budget into quarters and monitor your progress every three months to detect problems and make corrections.

Bill In Congress Would Promote Small Business, Economic Stimulus

Congress's new bill would block large corporations from receiving federal contracts intended for small businesses.

The Fairness and Transparency in Contracting Act of 2009, H.R. 2568, would update the definition of a small business by excluding publicly traded companies from the classification. This change will stop publicly traded companies from getting government  small business contracts.

The Small Business Inspector General found that four of 100 federal contracts iintended small businesses go to companies that do not apply.
President Lloyd Chapman estimates that this bill will bring $100 billion in government contracts to small businesses.

Client Profile - Village of Groveport
Groveport is a village in Franklin County with a population of about 4,500. The Village of Groveport was established in April of 1847 with a population of 250, since then the village has grown greatly not only in residents but also with business. In the past twenty-five years, industrial parks appeared along the Route 317 corridor as Groveport sought to take advantage of both the Rickenbacker Port Authority and the nearby interstate highway.

"CSC is our full IT department, without them we would have no department at all. They are our go to man for everything, always responding with quick, efficient personalized care. Some of the things they handle is all hardware repair, infrastructure, maintaining network perimeter, establishing firewalls, and server maintenance just to name a few. They have truly become one of our family," said Village of Groveport's Jeff Green.
