I run a small business and we have a fortune 500 company as one of our clients. This is great and all except that they push us around as far as finances are concerned. They always pay, but never on time.
Recently they were two months delinquent on invoices. I expected this was to budget out their quarterly taxes. The issue is that I had already budgeted for year-end and now I have an extra 40k and 2 weeks get rid of it.
Is there anyway I can push this money into 2019 without being taxed on it in 2018? I assume not so my follow-up question is: what should I do with it short of bonuses and new products?
