In any business, one should always keep his/her ears on the ground. Aside from knowing the market and creating a distinct identity for the company, a smart entrepreneur knows that it is crucial to come up with new ideas/solutions and flesh them out. Whether a business is a start-up or an established brand, a smart entrepreneur must be very involved in it. Doing so will keep one abreast with the developments that will make the business a step ahead of the competition.

One of the tasks of maintaining a competitive enterprise is to choose from a variety of business solutions and tools for the business’ operations on which technology plays a big part. Embedded computer technology in particular, is what Advanced TCA is all about- it is present everywhere whether it be industrial automation, energy, communications, medical, transportation, infotainment, and defense and aerospace.

We have heard numerous stories of people drowning into a sea of debt after using (or abusing) their plastic money, or credit cards which make many people think that credit cards are bad and will just just bring about financial doom. On the other hand, there are also many entrepreneurs who successfully use their credit cards to bank roll their businesses. By observing the right practices, you too can make your credit card work for your own business. Here are some tips that you can follow:

Pay the total amount due on or before the due date to stay in good standing. If you pay an amount that is less than the total amount due, you become a borrower and would be charged an interest of 2.5 to 3.75% a month, depending on the credit card issuer. If you pay after the due date, you will have to pay a late payment fee.

Take advantage of the cash advance facility. If you have several credit cards, compare the rates and terms so you could choose the most advantageous for you. Remember that you have to have the cash to pay your bill come due date.

Ask for a waiver of fees if you are a good payer or a long-time card-holder. Some banks may consider waiving your annual fees on your account if you are in good standing.

Use your credit card to monitor your cash flow and operational expenses such as utilities, office supplies, gasoline, etc. This can serve as a tool to analyze your business’ expenses and cash flow requirements.
