This is according to a recent article in Inc. magazine which provides this six-point check list of where your business could be losing money.

Bank charges: Like online charges, regularly check that you are getting the best service and fee structure from your bank.
Web hosting: It’s worth checking your contract to see what kind of charges your service provider is billing you for.
