Take a Breath…Plan your Future.

We made it to April 15th!  Hooray, tax season is pretty much in the rear-view mirror now and it is time to make other financial plans.  One of them may be to choose the correct business entity.  2018 may be the year when you embark on that journey of self-employment.  The economy is better in the Las Vegas area and the time may be right.

Here are some mistakes to avoid when choosing a business entity –

1.  You must fully understand the tax implications of each one.
2.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking you do not need a formal entity.
3.  It will not protect you against all risks.
4.  An out-of-state incorporation probably will not save you much, if any money.
5.  Not having a rock-solid agreement with your partners.

So, take a breath and as soon as possible make an appointment with Michael Mathews.  He is Las Vegas’ professional entity planner.  He will guide you down the path in being a successful business owner in 2018 and way beyond.  Now is a great time to make an appointment at 2620 Regatta Drive Suite 102 with Michael.  Call (702) 240-5237.

Owning your Own Business Changes Everything.

Remember when your time was regimented?  You had, say a 40 hour work week.  You clocked in on Monday and out on Friday and walked away from any other responsibilities regarding your job or the company you worked for.  Now, you have made a monumental personal decision and started a business of your own.  You go Mr. or Ms. Entrepreneur!

You probably should keep your business finances separate from your individual finances, which means a lot more paperwork.  This is time which equals money if you try to do it all yourself.  You could start a 401k to contribute funds toward retirement.  Before you know it, you have manila envelopes full of receipts everywhere!

Stop this endless string of unnecessary extra work as soon as you can.  I know it is the beginning of April, but what better time to get your personal and business tax situation under control for the remainder of this year and those to come?  When you get a minute call me, Michael Mathews a Las Vegas business and personal tax manager and CPA, for an appointment at my office located on Regata Drive.  That number is (702) 240-5237.
