Salary Bookkeeping, 2013
July 1st, 2013

July 1st is (the date on which one season ends and the next one begins, and thus June 30th (and the week preceding it) is an important cut-off date for certain transactions.

Players with player or early termination options had to decide if they were coming back; the few players with team options awaited an uncertain future; players eligible for QO’s had to see if they got them.

All the results are in now, and there follows a list of who did what before July 1st. NB: free agent statuses taken as of April 22nd 2013.

(Under the new CBA, all qualifying offers have to be fully guaranteed. Previously, they only had to be guaranteed for the same percentage amount as the previous year’s salary was. Therefore, fewer qualifying offers are given out now.)

    Accurate bookkeeping is a necessity if you run your own business. It may seem to be something of a chore but it’s vitally important that you keep track of your revenue and outgoings. Many businesses which would otherwise have been successful have been brought down by their failure to maintain proper financial records. Whether you do it yourself or hire someone else to do it.http://awolfbookkeeping.com/
