Is Your Business Playing By The Rules?

There are so many rules in business that you have to follow, and if you don’t, a big fine is going to wind up on your desk. Some companies are bending the rules so much so, that they’re actually being shut down, or going into administration. But we know how easy it is to bend the rules sometimes. If there’s one thing we all know to be true about business, it’s that it’s just so expensive to run. Usually, all of the rules that we have to follow make everything even more expensive, and that’s why so many people are trying to cut corners as we speak. But cutting corners is only going to land you in bad waters, and there are some corners that you definitely shouldn’t be cutting, and those are the ones we want to talk about today. We want to make sure that your business is running as smoothly as it possibly can, and here’s how we think you can do that!

With Your Employees

Now this is an area that we know businesses are definitely cutting corners, because it’s so easy to do so. But employees can fight back, and when they do, you could have a big problem on your hands. One area that people seem to cut corners the most, is with health and safety, and competency of workers who are working with machinery. Or perhaps just working on a building site for example. Basically, anywhere where they can cause serious harm to themselves or others. But all you simply have to do is sort a verification of competency test, and your employees will be fit to work in the area that you require them to do so. Ignore something like this, and something seriously goes wrong,and you could find yourself in court being sued more than you would ever imagine. Because at the end of it all, it is your fault for not taking the time to ensure they’re safe to work.

With Your Finances

This is such a common one at the minute, no matter how big or small the business is. Most common has to be tax evasion, because tax for a business can be crippling. This leads to business owners cutting some corners with their tax submissions, missing out certain costs. But it’s something that’s being cracked down on more and more lately, and big company owners are falling at the hands of the law. So don’t be the one to try and cut corners, be the one to focus on making more money, to make up for the extra tax you’re going to have to pay.

With Your Marketing

Black hat marketing is becoming more and more popular at the minute, simply because it works quicker and seems to work better. However, if you think about techniques such as SEO, you could really damage your business by cutting corners here. It might be cheaper, but using the wrong methods could have your website or your brand blacklisted, and that’s definitely not something you want to deal with!
