Tax breaks are attractive. But Gary I. Glassman, CPA counsels that you buy the equipment your veterinary hospital needs, your team will use, and your finances will appreciate with great ROI.

Take these steps to help prevent fraud in your business

 

How can you prevent employee fraud in your business? Here are four suggestions.

 

  • Screen job applicants. Check work references, criminal records, and professional recommendations. By instituting a screening policy, you may save a lot of cash and grief. Just remember to treat every applicant equally, and get written permission for background checks.

 

  • Reconcile bank accounts. A standard and simple internal control is to separate employees who pay bills and make deposits from those who reconcile accounts. As an owner, making time to personally review deposits and disbursements on a regular basis can deter fraudulent billing or cash skimming schemes.

 

  • Secure inventory and supplies. This can be as simple as regularly changing combinations on warehouse doors or locking supply cabinets. Laptop computers are especially vulnerable to theft, so make a priority of securing them.

 

  • Get a cash control review. Having a trained set of eyes inspect your books, records, and operations can pay for itself many times over. Skilled auditors can ferret out scams and help your business develop stronger controls against criminals, both inside and out.

Did hear the news that Microsoft will soon be ending is offer to allow free upgrades for older versions of its Windows Operating System to Windows 10? The deadline to download and install the free upgrade is July 29th, 2016.

Its very important that you first check with your Veterinary software provider before installing the Windows 10 upgrade. The most progressive Veterinary software providers have already ensured that the most recent versions of their software is compatible with Windows 10, however is still vitally important that you call their technical support lines to double check that you are running the latest version of their software, and that any other associated programs you have installed are also Windows 10 compatible.

 

Once you have verified that your veterinary software is Windows 10 compatible you can purchase any new or replacement computers for your practice with Windows 10 preinstalled installed and save yourself a round of operating system upgrades in the future.
