Benefits Of Forming A UK Company
First and foremost, the principal benefit of trading via a limited company has always been the limited liability bestowed upon the company's officers and shareholders. As a sole trader or other non-limited business, personal assets can be at risk in the event of a failure of the business, but this is not the case for a limited company. As long as the business is operated legally and within the terms of the Companies Act, directors' or shareholders' personal assets are not at risk in the event of a winding up or receivership. And as often happens on occasion, such events are not always under our own control.

Turning Personal Loans Into Business Payoff
Hi. My husband and I started a business and incorporated it Jan 24, 2001. We are a custom software development company. When we began, we used our own money to buy computers and other office needs, then, when we moved into a commercial office space in October of 2002, we took out loans in our own (personal) names using our own credit to fund the business moving into an office space and all the expenditures associated with this move (like office furniture, etc.). The reason we took out personal loans (and used personal credit cards) was that the business had no credit itself and we were really sure that neither a bank loan nor a credit card in the business' name would be possible at that stage. Is there any way we can deal with the company paying off these debts? And how can we deal with this odd situation to minimize both business taxes and our personal taxes? And how can we re-seal the corporate veil, so to speak?

Sole Properietorship And Tax Liablility
Hi Wayne: I am a Personal and Business Coach and that income requires quarterly self-employment tax payments as estimates of that year's taxes. I also earn some occasional income through a couple of other businesses who hire me as contract labor. The income I earn through those businesses gets reported on 1099-Misc under section 7. Nonemployee compensation. Does that income also need to be included in the quarterly self- employment tax payments? At what point of income MUST you file the quarterly payments?

The Deductibility Of Charitable Contributions
I was told that you have to reach a certain percent of donation from your annual income before you can claim it as tax deduction. Others tells me that they claim all their deduction no matter how much. I'm confused, please help! Thanks, Bernadette

Vehicle Deductions And Section 179
What can you tell me about Section 179. I own a small business and have heard that I can obtain a substantial tax benefit by purchasing a new vehicle. I was told that to obtain the most benefit I should purchase a vehicle with at least 6000 lb. Gross Vehicle Weight. How much benefit could I expect and do I have to maintain ownership for any specific length of time? If I purchase late in the year can I still utilize the deduction? Is there anything I should be aware of that could bite me if I'm not careful?

Are Safe Lists Really Safe?
For anyone just starting out in any area of web commerce, the term "Safe List" should not be new to you. A multitude of these safe lists are marketed to us each day by so many people that I sometimes wonder if the senders find time to do anything besides advertise safe lists!

The Unexpected 'Thank You'
I bought my first new car when I was 21 years old. It was a bright red convertible. Along with the joy of owning my dream car came the responsibility of paying for it. I remember how the feeling of "buyer's remorse" plagued me for days after I drove the car off the dealer's lot. ("Buyer's remorse" is what we feel after making an impulsive decision ...until we can justify our decision with logical reasons.)

Singing Your Way to Success
Entrepreneurs can take a lesson from Sheryl Crow hit, "Soak up the Sun." During the chorus she sings, "For every time I feel lame; I'm looking up." For those who start and build a new enterprise, the need to keep "looking up" is critical for success. An entrepreneur is like a salmon trying to swim upstream through rapids. It takes an unnatural degree of effort, and the dearest struggle usually comes while all outward signs present a negative face.

Little Box of Dreams
We are so very busy these days that we don't seem to have the time to make personal and career goals for ourselves. We have dreams and aspirations, but we don't take the time to map out a plan to make them happen. We simply accept what life throws at us and settle for the mediocre. But it doesn't need to be. We CAN change our future and with little effort.

Online Auctions: Play it smart
Online auctions are a terrific way to save money, or make an extra buck. According to a 2002 Newsweek article, more than 50 million people buy and sell on eBay, not counting the millions that buy and sell via other auction venues. This is beneficial for both buyers and sellers, but any online venture is bound to have pitfalls. Online auctions are basically an honors system type of business.

Small Business Loans That are Easier to Get

They insist on tying their business loans to assets such as brick, mortar, and equipment. All the while, they ignore the fact that going forward businesses with the greatest potential for growth will be those whose real assets consist of the ideas, knowledge, and vision of the owners and employees.

Design Professionals Save You Money
There have been several times in my career that I have been called in to fix or finish out a design project where the client was trying to do a lot of the design work themself. This can be a costly and often time-consuming mistake on the part of the client. In today's highly charged hospitality and foodservice environment the client/operator needs all the competitive edge he can get. The requirements and design documentation needed to obtain all the permits needed to build or remodel hospitality facilities is staggering.

Multicultural Differences in Greetings You Need to Be Aware Of
Multiculturalism is a reality in the US and for those of us who do business globally. The US has more legal immigrants yearly than all the other countries in the world combined. Also there are vast cultural differences among "native" Americans living in the US for several generations, as you know if you've done business with a New Yorker (better be quick!) or bi'ness with a Texan (better stand at a 90% angle to your male companion).

QuickBooks Q&A: Tax Tables
Q: I have a question about payroll items and tax-tracking categories in QuickBooks. I have just me and I'm an 1120-S, so I don't feel it is worth the $169 subscription price when I used to be able to download the tax tables for free. I waited until February 2003 to activate my free download, but now the payroll area keeps running me through the setup wizard telling me that my tax-tracking categories are all wrong. Even when I check "this payroll item is inactive" for things I don't use, it still gives me the error. Maybe this is just a quirky coincidence of me not paying the subscription fee?
