Business seminar tonight, Wednesday in Silverthorne

Daily News staff report

In the current financial climate, there’s a ton of information circulating about how businesses can access and save money. Yet frustratingly, there’s perhaps even more misinformation. In response to this common issue and as part of an ongoing effort to help Summit County businesses thrive, Summit Independent Business Alliance (SIBA) is announcing its next, free Business Builders’ Toolbox seminar, which will tackle these two, key financial topics for small business owners. Co-presented by Michele Knight of Knight Accounting & Technology, LLC and Jack Taylor of the Small Business Development Center, the Business Builders’ Toolbox will take place at today at 7 p.m. and Wednesday at noon, at the Silverthorne Pavilion. Knight’s topic – “Are You Getting Your Share of $12 Billion in Tax Incentives, or Are You Paying the Price? – will address crucial information related to the tax incentives being offered by the federal government. Business owners will also learn about the bonus depreciation and the new health insurance deductions available to them this year, and understand the impacts of the new 1099 rules for landlords and small businesses. Also speaking to the financial concerns of small business owners, Taylor will provide insights and tips on lending through his presentation: “Access to Capital, Is there Such a Thing?” In this workshop, you will learn what is truly available to small businesses and how to give yourself the best opportunity to access needed funds. The Small Business Jobs Act contains several provisions that could increase access to capital for small business owners looking to grow. You will learn what those provisions are, and whether they’ll work for your particular business.Box meals may be pre-ordered at Deli on the Blue (next to the Silverthorne Pavilion in Locals Liquors – call ahead 262-1200) for those who wish to bring in lunch or dinner during the event.
