The Products You Need for Managing and Tracking Business Expenses

Learn more about the different products you can use to make tracking and managing your expenses as a business owner easier.

Running a flourishing business means overseeing a constant flow of money. Luckily, though, there are products that can help you cover, manage and track your business expenses effectively and smoothly. Let’s take a look at some of them. 

Business checking accounts 

A designated business checking account can help a business manage and track expenses, taxes and revenue. Separate accounts also protect the business owner from losing personal assets if action is taken against the company. Business owners can use their checking accounts to deposit checks made out to their company and to cover business expenses, such as payroll or paying suppliers.

Business savings account 

A business savings account is an account designated for funds to be used in case of  emergency or for future business expenses. The money in this account will grow at a greater dividend rate, but access to funds is more limited. Listerhill's Business Share Savings account accrues competitive interest and only requires $5 to open. Learn more about Listerhill's Business Share Savings account

Business credit card 

A business credit card provides small business owners with easy and unsecured access to a revolving line of credit. The business owner can use the credit to withdraw cash as necessary, cover large expenses, make purchases, fund expansion or meet monthly bill payments. 

A business credit card is easier to qualify for in comparison to a business loan, but will nearly always have a higher interest rate. However, if the business owner is careful only to use the credit card when it is absolutely necessary and pays the bill before it’s due, interest will not accrue. With Listerhill's business credit card, you can get awesome perks like a low fixed rate, multiple user access, merchandise rewards and a flexible credit limit. Learn more about what you need to open a business credit card with Listerhill.

Tax software 

Tracking business expenses and marking which can be deducted from a company’s tax liability can be super-challenging. Tax software designed for businesses makes this task easy.  Business tax software, like H&R Block, Quickbooks, TaxAct and TaxSlayer, can track all the expenses of a business and help owners file taxes efficiently and easily.

Money management apps 

Managing expenses for a small business isn’t easy. Fortunately, there’s an app for that! Money management apps like Mint, Truebill and ZohoBooks, allow businesses to track and review all their expenses in one convenient location. Chart expenses on colored graphs, categorize them for easier tax filing and link accounts for automatic syncing of expenditures and income.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does Interest-Only Mean?

    With an interest-only loan, you are only responsible for paying the interest on the amount you draw from the construction loan each month. 

    Here’s an example. 

    If you draw $15,000 in January, you pay 4.99% on $15,000

    If you draw an additional $25,000 in February, you pay 4.99% on $40,000 ($15K from January + $25K from February)

  • What is a Construction Loan?

    A home construction loan provides you with financing to build your dream home. 

    With terms up to 12 months, this short-term loan covers your costs, including land, contractor labor, building materials, and more, until your home receives an occupancy certificate.  

    Once your home is ready to move in, you will then secure a traditional home mortgage.

  • You might prefer an adjustable-rate mortgage over a fixed-rate mortgage if...

    • You plan to move before the introductory rate expires.
    • You want a lower payment during your initial payment period.
    • You think rates will drop in the future.
    • You are planning on relocating before the rate adjusts
    • You know you will be paying off the loan in a few years
    • You need to move fast and have limited time to secure a down payment
    • You do not qualify for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, but want a 30-year payment schedule
    • Your payment could decrease if the index against which your ARM is benchmarked drops
  • A 5/5 adjustable rate-mortgage is right for you if...

    A 30-year ARM with a fixed interest rate for the first five years, then fluctuating every five years. 

    A 5/5 ARM is best if you want to lock in a low rate over a longer period and maintain the same rate over an extended time. 

    With a 5/5 adjustable-rate mortgage, you can go 10 years with only one rate adjustment, whereas with other lenders, you could experience up to six rate changes in the same time period.

  • A 3/3 adjustable-rate mortgage is right for you if...

    A 30-year ARM with a fixed interest rate for the first three years, then fluctuating every three years

    A 3/3 ARM is best if you want to lock in the lowest rate, but over a shorter period and are okay with the rate fluctuating more often.
