Recordkeeping and Taxes for Small Business 

This workshop is perfect for business owners who know their product or service very well, but are frustrated by accounting. Owners should not be working hard and running out of cash at the end of the month. This seminar will help participants understand the financial aspects of a business and associated taxes. Participants will become familiar with those financial terms that confuse them, but are the road map to their success.

Topics will include: traits that make a business thrive and grow, CPAs and when and how does one use them, reading financial statements, required federal and state reports and determining profit. The seminar takes place on June 13 from 6-9 p.m. and is free to attend.
