Bookkeeping for sole proprietors is often an overwhelming and therefore neglected process, resulting in tax filing being a stressful process, with large payments owed, and sometimes penalties and late filing.
If you’ve avoided all of that, congratulations! Come and share what worked for you with your fellow entrepreneurs. You may still want to tune up your bookkeeping, and build on your good start.
Together, we'll review:
- How much to set aside so you won’t owe when you file your taxes.
Design your bookkeeping to ease tax filing, and have your reports tell you other information you care about.
How to discourage an IRS auditor (bore them and they’ll go away faster).
What type of bookkeeping program fits you and your business?
- What you need, to document expenses properly for the IRS.
Why a shoe box is a good beginning, and how to get better.
How long to keep your records.
Entertainment/Meals & Travel
- Definitions, what is deductible and how much is deductible, and what the IRS requires to support the expense.
Employees vs. Contractors
- Why you should care and how to know.
- How to begin saving for retirement.
This may seem like a lot, but the beautiful thing is that it is not! Come and get organized, prepare to grow and make your entrepreneurial venture a success from beginning to end.
