Starting a Business? (start here)

If you're starting a business then there is already a ton of work on your plate. With this new business formation course you can walk in the door confused and leave with all your questions answered and your business set up (and in compliance legally/tax wise)

Why this will boost your business-

We aren't making any promises (sorry).

But in our experience, we've seen businesses start and operate for years before getting any advice about bookkeeping or taxes. This can lead to a huge mess.

Bookkeepers/accountants and tax preparers don't want to untangle your web of receipts, bank statements and half filled out forms.

It's so much simpler (and less expensive) to get things sorted out from the beginning.

  • Unpaid or late taxes can come with fees on top of the large tax bill that you've neglected to pay.

  • If you don't have the proper licensing you could run into trouble with the law and also have trouble getting things like grants.

  • Lastly, when you neglect your bookkeeping it's 1) more work to do taxes + may lose out on tax credits 2) hard to know the financial health of your business

Entrepreneurs (like you) often have knowledge about the thing(s) your small business are about like maybe knitting or rock climbing. But you often don't know about accounting and taxes. If the budget is tight, it's possible you haven't wanted to outsource it either.

What is this course (what to expect)-

  • Instructed by Linda who has 25+ years of tax and accounting experience

  • Each class is 5 people max, which means you'll have 1-1 time with Linda

  • 4 hours for each class

We will meet at our downtown Tacoma office where we will discuss everything you need to do to stay in compliance legally. Everything from business licenses to taxes.

Here is a list of things we will cover:

  • Choosing a type of business

  • Are you an independent contractor and/or have you hired one?

  • Banking

  • Accounting + accounting software

  • WA state business license

  • City business license

  • Secretary of State

  • Department of Revenue

  • L&I

  • Brief overview on taxes

Once you book this course with us we will send you an e-book covering these topics briefly (with helpful links).

During the course Linda will walk you through each topic. We will also leave room for any questions you may have.

How much will it cost?

You are probably feeling overwhelmed by startup costs. We get it. This course is $100 per person.

When you set up your licenses and/or pay your state sales tax etc. there will be extra costs (not included). The $100 is just for education and expertise you will receive in the course. Licensing and taxes are costs you are going to incur anyway (if you're operating legally).

We offer a second course which is $200. But you sign up for that separately and you may or may not want to participate in that course. More details on that here.

How to save your spot-

Each course has only 5 spots available. This allows for 1-1 time. We really want to help you get all your questions answered.

All you need to do is book your spot. click here. The first course is being held Friday, July 21st
