Lets us start with licenses. Licenses are always taken once when you are opening your business. It is advisable that you note down all the expenses in every business. Apart from that they always renewed after a given period of time maybe one year of which the business owners always don’t count it under expenses.

With a licensed business you will be able to connect with other business owners and this may help you in expanding your business.

Another expense is the cost of building space. You will be required to expand the space as your business grows. As a result you will need more land to expand the building.
