Episode 16: Strategic Benefits to Attract & Retain Staff AND Save on Taxes!
<p>Unlock the secrets of keeping your team happy and your business thriving with the wisdom we&apos;ll bring to the table today. We&apos;re pulling back the curtain on employee retention strategies and the tax benefits they can harvest. We&apos;re eager to share a case study, a real life example from an HVAC contractor&apos;s hiring hurdles. With an emphasis on the power of local trade schools and the allure of S-corp conversion, we&apos;re equipping you with the know-how to not only save on payroll taxes but also to magnetize top-notch talent with creative perks, like student loan repayments, that resonate more than just a bumped-up salary.<br/><br/>This episode is your gateway to understanding why playing the long game as an S-corp beats the sole proprietorship track, especially when it comes to succession planning and retirement readiness not to mention employee recruitment and retention. While diving into the myriad benefits that fringe perks like phone bill coverage and gym memberships can offer, we also underscore the importance of adaptability. Businesses must be nimble when life throws curveballs, such as the next-gen opting out of the family enterprise. If you&apos;re nodding along, thinking, &quot;That&apos;s me!&quot; then you won&apos;t want to miss this conversation.  <br/><br/>For more information or to make an appointment visit www.busybeeadvisors.com</p>

Episode 14: Torqued on Taxes? Revving Up the Engines of Software vs Personal Professional Service.
<p>Ever felt like navigating the tax system is like trying to solve a Rubik&apos;s Cube in the dark? Join us, Melissa and Eric, as we shine a light on the tax labyrinth, helping you crack the code. This episode isn&apos;t just a run-of-the-mill tax talk; it&apos;s a treasure map to the gold mines of tax benefits for both individuals and business owners. We tackle the eternal debate: tax software versus a flesh-and-blood tax pro. While software might seem like a safe haven for W-2 wage earners, we reveal why entrepreneurs might need a more tailored approach and how important your involvement is – yes, even if you&apos;re not a numbers person.<br/><br/>Think of your tax advisor as the trusted mechanic for your financial vehicle. We&apos;ll discuss the horsepower needed from a tax professional who doesn&apos;t just fill in the blanks but understands the terrain of your industry.  From the false comfort of audit protection to the necessity of year-round tax guidance, we emphasize the importance of well-timed collaboration between you and your tax expert. Just like a mechanic diagnosing a car, a tax pro needs all the details to keep your financial engine running smoothly – we explore how to keep that relationship finely tuned.<br/><br/>You&apos;ll learn how a good tax professional isn&apos;t just a number cruncher but a navigator of tax seas – someone who&apos;s got your back when the waters get choppy with audits or unexpected tax events. Grasp the significance of mutual respect and preparedness and how these elements forge a strong alliance with your tax preparer. So, if you&apos;re ready to conquer taxes with confidence, let&apos;s buzz through the world of taxes together – because at Busy Bee Advisors, we&apos;re all about making taxes... well,  less taxing.<br/><br/>For more information or to make an appointment visit www.busybeeadvisors.com</p>
