There are certain measures you should take to protect your business and yourself. Forming a legal entity for your business is a major step in the right direction. But it’s only the first step. Learn what other measures need to be taken. Similarly, once you have your business up and running, you want to make sure you keep as many of your coins in your account as possible. Tax treatment and implications can have vast effects on your business’s profitability. This workshop will cover all of these things and more.
- Learn about the different types of business entities available for formation
- Learn about other corporate formalities you need to take in order to protect yourself and your business
- Learn the tax implications of selecting (or not) a business entity
- Learn what are "write offs" really
- Learn the distinction between a business versus a hobby
And with registration in the workshop, you will have the opportunity to ask questions ahead of time so we can try to address them on the call!
