Is the End of the S-Corporation Near?

For years now a great vehi­cle for start­ing a small busi­ness was the S-Corporation.  Losses can be passed through to the owner dur­ing the startup years.  Then, when prof­its begin, as long as the owner takes a ‘Rea­son­able Salary,’ the remain­ing prof­its are not sub­ject to self-employment.  Well, this may be the last year this holds true.  Here’s why.  » Read more about Is the End of the S-Corporation Near? »

Alternative Personal Notes

I am a HUGE fan of the per­sonal, hand­writ­ten note.  I believe that the time taken for any note that is hand­writ­ten shows the recip­i­ent how impor­tant they are.  While my opin­ion hasn’t changed, I have found a ser­vice that I may use to replace some of my typed and hand­writ­ten notes.

Branding - Who Are You?

David Knoble, CPA, PLLC

David Kno­ble, CPA, PLLC

A brand is cer­tainly who you are, but do you know who you are?  As a busi­ness of course!  It is easy to come up with a busi­ness strat­egy to gain more mar­ket share, gen­er­ate more cus­tomers, make more money, etc.  But how much of any of these strate­gies do you actu­ally pub­lish for the pub­lic to see?  My guess is ‘none’.  Here we dis­cuss a lit­tle about try­ing to fig­ure out who you are and how to brand that con­cept for the pub­lic.  » Read more about Brand­ing — Who Are You? »

What is the Best Company Form?

What is the best com­pany form for your busi­ness?  Should you be a Cor­po­ra­tion or a Part­ner­ship?  A C-Corporation or an S-Corporation?  What about an LLC?  Pick­ing the right com­pany form is extremely impor­tant when you start a new busi­ness.  It is eas­ier to choose then and there are more tax con­se­quences as a result of chang­ing later.  How­ever, chang­ing is not impos­si­ble and there are cir­cum­stances where you may wish to move to a dif­fer­ent com­pany form.  » Read more about What is the Best Com­pany Form? »

Using LinkedIn for Networking

LinkedIn Icon

LinkedIn con­tin­ues to be the new craze of social net­work­ing, but with a unique twist.  LinkedIn is the first to require approval before some­one can link to your pro­file.  Addi­tion­ally, your pro­file includes your edu­ca­tion, work his­tory, ref­er­ences, links to your web site — in short a com­plete resume about who you are.  The ques­tion is:  how do you use LinkedIn to really begin net­work­ing?  » Read more about Using LinkedIn for Networking »
