5 Advertising Write-offs Every Business Owner Should Know

Creative ideas for business owners in need of an advertising write-off, as the end of the year approaches. 

As the year comes to an end, so does the annual tax strategy balancing act. If you are left with only a few weeks to go and still in need of a write-off, we have some ideas for you. Some products are even able to be ordered and delivered before the end of the year. While we do not claim to be tax advisors at all, we do have some hands-on experience as a small business ourselves with what the end of the year can look like. For many, advertising expenses can be a 100% write-off. With that in mind, we came up with a list for you to help brainstorm some ways you may be able to take advantage of an advertising write-off to offset your tax liability through purchasing advertising materials that build your brand. 

Storefront Signage

Vinyl graphics are an effective way to advertise to people who are walking or driving by, who may be considering your products or services. Here are a few examples of storefront imagery and text we have installed.

Interior and Exterior Wall Wraps

We call them wall wraps – you may know them as a wall mural or wallpaper. Nonetheless, the opportunity to make a quick upgrade to the interior or exterior of your business is easier than you think. From subtle designs to surprising colors, we gathered some examples below for you from our previous work as inspiration for your next install! If you have a design in mind we can bring that to life, if not our experienced designers can help you create the perfect vinyl wall wrap design.  

Custom Banners for Sales and Events

We have the ability to create numerous types of custom banners, so if you require a sign for an event or sale contact us today! Banners are a great way to showcase your brand and products inside your store or at other locations and can also be considered an advertising write-off. 

Company Vehicle Wraps or Graphics 

From food trucks to fleet vehicles, the vehicles your company owns can always be advertising for you wherever you go. If you do not have your company logo or services advertised on the vehicles your company owns, reach out to us to brainstorm some ways to get this implemented! 

Booth and Trade Show Displays

Booth and trade show displays are a great way to set your business up for success at the next conference or event you attend. We can help with anything from large backdrops to popup banners. Check out some of our previous booth display examples here. 

Many small to medium-size business owners find it can be difficult to find ways to offset their tax liability. Advertising is often overlooked as a business expense. Don’t let the opportunity to take advantage of an advertising write-off slip through your fingers. If something we mentioned above caught your eye, or you have some ideas of ways you would like to take your business to the next level, contact us today! We would be happy to get you a quote, set you up with a designer and get things rolling before the end of the year.
