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? »

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? »
