Be Green Hub Speaker Lunch: Tax Basics for Entrepreneurs
Businesses are taxed differently than individuals. Most entrepreneurs know this on some level, but few are aware of the specific differences and best practices that apply to them. As a result, many startups pay too much tax or, worse, get into completely preventable tax problems stemming from poor planning. This session will help you avoid the most common entrepreneurial tax headaches and capitalize on your biggest advantages.
Topics will include:
Corporate Entities and Reporting Requirements
Accounting Methods Accrual or Cash
Tax Basis and Impact of Debt
Start-up and Technology Company Issues
