3 Rules to Meet Career Goals & Increase Your Salary

– Most new accountants, if we’re defining new accountants as someone just out of school they come to the workforce with a number of positive attributes. They’re very confident, they’re extremely
collaborative, very adaptive, they challenge the status quo, they have leadership qualities, they have an entrepreneurial spirit and maybe for all those reasons that those individuals have a
right here right now approach. My advice to those individuals would be to think longer term. Your career is a marathon, it’s just comprised of
a number of sprints. Think about those future sprints and how do you think about
those future sprints? You develop what I call a career plan. First, write down your
goals in time increments. What do you hope to
accomplish in year one, year three, year five plus? Second, next to each of those goals I want you to write down how you plan to accomplish those goals. What specific actions
are you going to take to achieve those goals? Third, and this one often gets overlooked, is write down who can help
you achieve those goals. There’s absolutely no shame in leveraging others to
help you achieve your goals. The career plan is a
living, breathing document. You need to make sure you pull that out at least every six months. Put it on your calendar to
check in on your career plan every six months. Stuff happens, things get
in the way, things change and you’ll have to make
adjustments on the fly. (lighthearted instrumental music)

How to Pay Yourself – Salary Dividends & Benefits

♪ The best things in life are free ♪ ♪ But you can give them
to the birds and bees ♪ ♪ I need money ♪ ♪ That’s what I want ♪ ♪ That’s what I want ♪ ♪ That’s what I want ♪ (laughing) – Hi, everybody. Did you like that little
bit of lip synching there? Okay, so, today we’re
gonna be talking about how to pay yourself out
of your business, okay? So, here’s Scampi again, as you can see we’ve paid him, he’s got his salary there, and his dividends. Okay, so over to Mahmood, who’s going to go through some really important points, guys. – Thank you very much Serena. Thank you very much Scampi. Now, a common question that we always get
asked by business owners is how we pay ourself. Now, the most rehearsed route we know is you pay yourself a salary, when it comes up on the board. Typically, just rehearsed that, typically it just set
a relatively low level, so you can get some credit
for your state pension when you eventually retire. The rest is taken out as dividends. You got the difference here. You got a dividend free allowance here. We’re not gonna rehearse and go over the same old details. We’re gonna table to
illustrate the impact. The third thing that
is not often considered is actually the company
providing benefits to you. So let’s have a look first of all in terms of the salary. Summary of the general situation here. You’ve got three things to consider, your status as a taxpayer. So if your income is below 50 grand, salary, overall tax rate for company and yourself personally is 40%. You as an individual in terms you take it out as dividends. The overall tax rate is 25. Really good advantage for
dividends in that situation. If you happen to be what’s
called a high rate taxpayer, 50 grand plus, then paying yourself salary is an overall tax rate for
you and the company at 49. Pay yourself dividends is about 45%, so the gap really narrows, but dividends are still,
you know, more preferred. If you have to be in the blimey rate. That’s if you’re 150 grand a year plus, you know, great target to get to, then the salary route is 53% overall tax burden for
you and the company. Dividend rate is 50% overall. So the gap’s really narrowed, but still the edge is given to dividends. Now, route number three is benefits. So there are some benefits
the company can pay for which is all tax free, Tax Deductible. So things like providing a Mobile Phone, Health Screening, Eye tests and the like. In other situations though, it’s still worthwhile to consider the company actually paying for things you would pay for personally. And when you’re gonna look at it is, what do you need to take home to actually pay for those benefits. So what I’ve done here. I’ve summarised three scenarios. If you’re a basic rate payer, look at those wonderful savings. The company provides the benefit, you still pay tax, but you’re still better off. And it’s all about
money, in this situation. You’re a high rate payer, the savings become that much bigger. Again, that’s taking all those wonderful factors into account. And lastly, if you’re in the blimey rate, then the savings become much more bigger. So always worth considering. So hope you found this useful. – Okay, guys. So come on, get on Facebook, like us on LinkedIn. We know you look at it guys. Keep liking us, and head over to the website as well, have look at the blog in more detail ’cause there’s lots
interesting stuff on there as most of you will know if you’ve been on there. – So this is all from us
from the numbers guys. Hoping to turn your tax frowns – Into smiles. – [Both] Ciao! (upbeat music)

Guest Host Sean Hayes Negotiates His Salary with an Unsuspecting WB Accountant

Thank you. I am your guest
host, Sean Hayes. Ellen isn’t here today. She’s at a Little League
game with George W. Bush, so she’ll be back, I’m
sure, at some point. I’ve got to say, I
love doing the show. I really, really do. You always make me
feel so welcome. So thank you. In fact, this is my
third time hosting. So it’s– yeah. [APPLAUSE] Yeah. Thanks. It’s kind of like a third
date, which means you guys better put out
or it’s over, OK? But I do– I love
having this platform. I love how Ellen sometimes
uses it to discuss big issues affecting the country. And I would like to take a
stand myself and do that today. I’d like to address
the disparity of wages between men and women. Yes. [APPLAUSE] Here’s my problem. For hosting the exact same show,
Ellen makes way more than me. So as a man, I think I
finally deserve equal pay. Am I a hero for saying that? Kind of. I think I am. The point is, I think I deserve
a little more money than I’ve been making here, so I took
a trip to the Warner Brothers accounting office. They didn’t know I was
coming, but this gay boy needed to straighten things out. Here’s what happened. [MUSIC – RIHANNA, “BITCH BETTER
better have my money. Y’all should know
me well enough. Bitch better have my money. Hi. I’m Sean Hayes. Hello, Sean Hayes. Hi. Is this the
accounting department? Part of it. I’m guest hosting
The Ellen Show. Somebody suggested I
speak to Ellen about this, but I just figured I would
just cut out the middle woman and just come directly to you. So how much money
can you give me? I’ll have to check
with the studio. I can sit and wait. Are they on speed dial? Because I– just so you know, I
saw a high school on The Ellen Show last week get
$20,000, so don’t tell me it’s not in there because I know
how you guys cook the books. Listen, I’ll tell you what. Why don’t you leave
your computer on, OK, and go to the bathroom, and
I’ll go ahead and maybe check some graphs and things out? We’re not allowed to. I don’t know how
much Ellen makes, but I assume it’s
a frickin’ lot. Could you just take a
little bit from her check and put it into my check? I don’t think I’m
allowed to do that. All right. So I’m just going to
give it to you straight. Ellen drives a Lamborghini,
and I drive a Hyundai Sonata. And I think we both know
that that’s not right. Just a little sidebar– I’m not even convinced
she’s a lesbian. She doesn’t even
like softball, OK? I once once caught her
staring at my butt. And she was– it wasn’t like
an, oh, that’s a nice butt. She was like, oh,
that’s a nice butt. And then she was
fanning herself. So I think it’s all smoke
and mirrors with her. All right. Just be honest. How much does Ellen make? Just tell me. Do you have that
on the computer? I don’t have that information. Can you just pull it up? I can’t. I kind of feel like
you’re lying, like you know how much she makes. No, I have no idea
how much she makes. I’m sorry. I don’t know. Well, if you can
double my salary, I’ll get you tickets to the
show, not when Ellen’s hosting, but when I’m hosting. Well, I want to thank
you for your time, and I’m sorry we couldn’t
reach an agreement. So would you mind
signing a waiver? If you could just sign
right there just so– it’s just a formality to get
you to appear on the show. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you, sucker. $1 million. $1 million. You just signed me $1 million. Oh, my god, what a loser. Oh, my God. This is fantastic. Thanks. Good luck, chump. [APPLAUSE] Yeah. Yeah. Can you believe
I got $1 million? Yeah, the bad news is I
went to Pechanga last night and lost it all.
