Piedmont Community College’s Small Business Center will offer a free seminar “Licenses, Recordkeeping and Tax Issues for Small Businesses,” on Wednesday, April 13 from 6-9 p.m. at the Business Development Entrepreneurship Center, 105 N. Main St., Roxboro.
Many businesses require permits and licenses from local, county, state, and even federal agencies. Federal and state tax requirements are not the only reason to keep good, up-to-date records in your business. While the last thing you want to do is have the IRS or State Department of Revenue hassling you, good recordkeeping habits will allow you to focus on generating revenue rather than worrying about catching up on your bookkeeping.
By participating in this seminar, you will gain a solid understanding of taxes required for small business owners and develop the best tax strategy for your business. This free seminar will also help you to become familiar with the latest tax forms and procedures for both state and federal taxes. You may also discover how everyday business decisions can have tax implications that can affect your bottom line. This seminar is important for both new and experienced business owners.
