WHEN SHOULD I INCORPORATE MY SMALL BUSINESS?

You should begin considering incorporation between the “Lead Consultant Stage and the Super-Star Consultant Stage.”

Your group sales should be anywhere from $1,000 to $6,000 a month.  During this time you should maintain regular contact with your CPA who will help determine when incorporating is right for you.

When you reach the stages between “Super-Star Consultant & Super-Star Director,” you should be incorporated for the greatest tax savings.


TAX TIPS FOR SCENTSY CONSULTANTS

1.    Maintain regular contact with your CPA
2.    Tax plan throughout the year
3.    Familiarize yourself with all available deductible expenses
4.    Develop tax strategies for future Scentsy success
5.    Consider retirement planning
6.    Maintain efficient records for all business expenses
7.    Consult with a CPA regarding proper business organization


PAYROLL INFORMATION

Incorporated businesses generating substantial income are required by the Internal Revenue Service to take a “reasonable salary”.  This allows the IRS to collect social security & med icare tax.  A “reasonable salary” has never been truly defined by the IRS; therefore, business owners should meet with a CPA regularly to decide when payroll should begin.

Payroll includes the following items:

•    Monthly paycheck from business to business owner
•    W-2 Wage
•    Monthly & Quarterly Tax Deposits
•    Form 941, 940, TC 941, and form 3 of Utah Unemployment Insurance

Shaw & Associates, P.C. takes care of all your payroll needs, and ensures that all forms, tax deposits, etc., are taken care of on a timely basis.

Sole Proprietor Vs. S-Corporation

Sole Proprietor:
If your business is not incorporated, you become a sole proprietor by default. As a sole proprietor your income and expenses are reported on schedule C of your individual tax return. The dis advantages of a sole proprietor are having no liability protection for your personal assets and paying taxes at an extremely high rate, i.e. self employment tax.

S-Corporation:
To become an S Corporation, you must incorporate in the state in which you reside. An S Corporation gives you liability protection for your personal assets. Although there are expenses invol ved in becoming an S Corporation, the savings in tax far exceeds the cost to incorporate. As an S Corporation your income and expenses are reported on a separate tax return.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
Cheers!
