Common Deadly Mistakes for Growing Businesses (a tax+legal workshop)
This hands-on workshop might be the most useful strategy session you do all year. Now that your business has taxable profits, learn the single most expensive tax mistake that business owners often make. For long-term planning, learn how to maximize your value in an exit, partial exit, or growth plan. Presented by Kim Bey, CPA, and Sue Wang, Esq., this session will highlight specific ways to avoid some of the most common pitfalls that a business can encounter. We’ll address relevant questions such as: Can a few targeted changes save you thousands in taxes? (Yes, if you’re smart.) Can you lose control if you sell only 10% of the company? (Yes, if you’re careless.) Can you dramatically reduce your tax audit risk? Can a “mileage allowance” mistake cost you thousands? Can you really get sued if you ask a job candidate if he has children? (Yes, yes, and yes.) With plenty of time for questions, this workshop will help you plan for years of healthy growth. This two-hour workshop is limited to 20 participants.
