Salisbury Bank has partnered with Scoville Memorial Library and the Entrepreneurial Center of Northwest Connecticut to offer a free seminar: Taxation Planning and Strategies for Small Business Startups.

This two-part seminar will cover important topics necessary for those who are considering starting their own business.

Part 1 will cover how to select the best legal entity for your business, as well as the tax and liability implications of the entity selection. We will also discuss the steps needed to register your business or change its existing legal structure, and what types of taxes (beyond income tax) any business may be subject to.

Part 2 will focus on financing and organizational structure. We will have an introduction to financial statements analysis and why they play an important role in any business. We will also discuss record keeping options and strategies, as well as an overview of banking and insurance needs for the small business.
