Navigating Your Tax Responsibilities as Small Business Owner
January 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Ashley Guion, local CPA, will lead a workshop on navigating bookkeeping as a small business owner and what your tax responsibilities are. Participate in a discussion of entity choice selection, the pros and cons of each, and the tax responsibilities for each entity. Learn everything from the beginning steps of starting your own company to closing your ‘books’ at the end of the year for tax prep. Learn what is required of you in terms of tax preparation, as well as how to lessen not only your tax liability but also your tax preparation bill. There will also be a segment devoted to bookkeeping and tips & tricks that you can do to keep your time focused on your income-producing activities rather than spending it doing irksome bookkeeping. Questions are always encouraged and can really promote good conversation and discussion so feel free to ask that question that you “always wondered…”The same amount of time with your CPA could cost you hundreds – Ashley is volunteering her time to HGC for a fraction of what a standard hourly rate would be. No question is too silly – ask away.
