Hi I've just joined on here and am looking for some advice on how to run our business a bit more professionally. My husband uses the water fed pole system and has a reasonably good run, a lot of potential to expand (which we plan to do this year by more canvassing and hopefully some commercial contracts) and he also does some contract work for other window cleaners when needed. The main problem we find is that we get our money in dribs and drabs - my husband collects during the day if he gets people in, then does one evening of collecting each week, which is becoming a pain because hardly anyone is in and he ends up having to drive round his run on weekends trying to get them in. He has a few people who pay straight into our account but not many and a couple who send cheques. The other window cleaners he works for pay him for his days work via internet banking that evening. We want to get to the point of everything going into our business account and being able to just pay ourselves a weekly or monthly wage into our current account. Obviously with window cleaning, overheads are reasonably low, so most of what we earn, we can keep, apart from what is needed for tax/NI and we need to keep a little by for maintaining equipment. How do you all handle banking matters? We have a personal bank account, a business acount that we dont use that much, and an ISA account but unsure on how to juggle everything. Also how to get more customers to pay via online banking? Sorry for the long first post, hope it makes sense and looking forward to any advice that you may be able to offer! Many thanks in advance!
