Cash Flow and Contracts

Where's the cash? This question is all too common in the construction industry, and even profitable construction companies can have cash flow problems. Simply stated, contractors go out of business because they run out of money, not because they run out of work. Proper cash flow planning can help a business make intelligent decisions regarding budgeting, capital expenditures, financing, compensation and growth. It can help make the company more efficient and inspire the confidence of bankers, sureties, customers and other business partners. IRS Stakeholder Liaison provides small business tax materials that will be presented and reviewed by class participants. All IRS materials presented are free of charge.

Employees versus 1099

When it comes to the 1099 vs W2, there's an issue greater than just tax form identification. The two forms represent two different kinds of worker classification, with business implications and sometimes even ethical ones too. This is especially true within the construction industry. How do you know which is right for you? IRS Stakeholder Liaison provides small business tax materials that will be presented and reviewed by class participants. All IRS materials presented are free of charge.
