Webinars - The Alternative Board San Mateo County


Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2016 

Time: 9:00 am - 9:45 am PDT

Preparing for tax season is a yearlong activity--it isn’t just preparing your tax return. We’ll cover how the expensing of assets now includes qualified real estate, whether retirement plans should be implemented before December 31, 2016 and if you can be classified as a “Manufacturer,” which could potentially qualify you for receiving 9% of your profits tax-free. The webinar will also discuss how foreign businesses that own or work with U.S. businesses can consider arbitrating the various tax rates.

Presented by Steven Bankler - Owner, Steven Bankler, CPA, Ltd.

On December 1, 2016, 4.2 million salaried workers across the US will become eligible for overtime pay. While many CA employers are ill-prepared to adjust to the new Federal threshold of $47,476, some CA employers will face minimum wage increases even sooner in their cities. On July 1, 2016 at least seven Bay Area cities will raise their minimum wages to $11-$13, thus raising exempt white collar salaries even higher. 

Join us online to learn the facts about Federal white collar salary increases, CA minimum wage increases and how to prepare your organization to be ready. This free one hour webinar will provide an easy to understand description of the new rulings, who is impacted, and how you can prepare for the change while controlling your labor budget. 

You will leave the webinar with a step by step plan for implementing the changes in your organization, and keeping your employees informed.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Project management is often seen as a discipline geared toward larger businesses. Just as all employees of smaller businesses need to be marketers and sales people these days, they also need to be project managers. Yet, many employees and business owners find project management practices to be intimidating and therefore do not embrace them and employ them in their business.

In this webinar, Dave Scarola, Vice President of TAB and certified Project Management Professional (PMP), will take attendees through the basics of project management and how process and templates can be adapted for smaller businesses.

I initially joined TAB to learn how to better deal with ‘me.’ I perceived myself as a primary obstacle to growth. With TAB, I got plenty of ideas on how to view myself and the business differently and this has definitely improved my business. I learned that my business plan is a living document and track it periodically using the monthly progress report. In short, TAB has helped me design business processes that are more systematic, efficient and get results.

Being in business for the last 25 years and then joining my TAB board, I’ve seen such an improvement in my management style and effectiveness. TAB is a great resource for me, the information and the experience with small businesses as well as the insights shared.

For us, it’s all about generating clients. And how we’ve gone about generating those clients with the help of TAB has really been key to our ongoing success. I knew that I needed a sounding board, needed some outside expertise. And that’s exactly what TAB brings to the table. And it also holds my feet to the fire and keeps me accountable.Kalar is a patient and inquisitive listener who seeks a thorough understanding of the root origins and causes of issues before collaborating on potential solutions. He also helps me to consider "out of the box" type solutions and opportunities that invariably expand my thinking. With his help and guidance, we have resolved numerous tactical and strategic issues and positioned our company for significant growth.

TAB helps you recognize that pretty much everybody has the same type of issues with their business. It clears your head and it re-energizes you. When I leave a tab board meeting I’m re-energized to conquer not only that day, but the next year. TAB helps us focus on ourselves and the other TAB members…the answer is sometimes written on your forehead and you just need a mirror to be able to read that answer.
