Ways to Reduce Business Costs

Posted on: August 3, 2009

There are several ways to reduce operational business expenses. Some of these suggestions can save you significant money within moments.


Find outsourcing and contracting opportunities for ‘ad-hoc’ services. This step can significantly increase business capital.


Consider a company-wide ‘green’ initiative. Try a no-print policy for emails and/or print on both sides of the paper.


Working from home is one of the quickest ways to reduce the company’s overhead costs. With a standard office, there are several expensive costs such as facility, landscaping, and lease management. Not to mention the property taxes and other operational expenses.


Using the Internet via web conferencing can save time, costs (travel, phone) and valuable energy.


Working closely with your vendors and ensuring that they are abiding by the terms and conditions of the contract can reduce overhead costs significantly.


Identify areas in the company whereby purchasing as a group could be more financially efficient. When making a bulk purchase some vendors can give instant savings based upon the amount of items acquired.
