List Your Over Head


As I stated in another post I am putting together a business plan. What type of overhead could I epxect to run into if I decide to start/run a company?

P.S. I'd use subs so I don't need to worry about equipment YET!

Heres a few things I could think of:
  • Business Forms (Biz Cards, Proposals)
  • Business Phone
  • DSL/Cable Modem (so you can access this site )
  • Advertising
  • Answering Service (depends on your setup)
  • Website development/maintenace
  • Website Hosting (typically between $5-$10/Mo)
  • Office Equipment (Computer, Fax, Pocket PC, Digital Camera)
  • Lawyer and Accountant Fees
  • Liability Insurance
  • Quickbooks Software
  • Cost Overruns
  • Gas
  • Bank Fees
  • Association Fees
  • Cell Phones
  • Big Gulps
What did I miss?
