Be reminded always to cover your back. In order to achieve this objective, you will need to enlist the services of others. You cannot be allowed to lose focus on the primary objectives of running your business. While you focus on your product, others with specialist skills relevant to aspects of your business will proceed as directed. These professional services need not be costly. You can contract in required work from time to time during your financial year.
For instance, in the quarter in which your tax returns may be due, you will have enlisted the work of your appointed accountant. While he delves through the complexities of all your receipts, you can continue with the daily running of your business, never having to lose track of time and scheduling. During this same period, it would be a good idea to evaluate your insurance requirements. Operating on a global scale now, you may have been told that your local insurance package needs to be converted to specialized international insurance vehicles.
There are a number of complexities you may have to negotiate and your local insurance agent or service provider may be powerless to assist you. You therefore need an international specialist who has an acute understanding of other operating areas’ trade and industry and financial regulations. You will need to be advised on the different regulatory procedures that may form part of your financial retrieval process in the event of any loss or damage.
In the area of physical damage, there would need to be an observance of different areas’ municipal regulations in lieu of possible re-building or reconstruction of premises in the aftermath of a damaging incident, as opposed to relocating which would turn out to be costlier and logistically unfeasible.
