Small-business owners: Get your questions answered at Small Business Advisory Day

Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants hosts second annual event Aug. 29

MINNEAPOLIS (July 30, 2018) -- For small-business owners, the questions about their businesses are often plenty, and the answers are too few. Those mysteries don't need to linger any longer than necessary if they take advantage of the second annual Small Business Advisory Day on Aug. 29, hosted by the Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA). At this free event, small-business owners can meet with a CPA for a 30-minute session.

CPAs are trusted consultants in business advisory services. The CPAs volunteering at Small Business Advisory Day will share their expertise with current and future entrepreneurs to help get them on the right track. A sampling of issues they are poised to discuss include:   

  • Identifying strategies to help lower small-business taxes.
  • Understanding the impacts of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, especially with Minnesota's nonconforming tax code.
  • Navigating the financial challenges within the first year of operation.
  • Seeing the most out of QuickBooks.
  • Planning for retirement.

Jenna Mueller, CPA, a manager with Murry & Associates, LLC, is eager to help entrepreneurs find the right path.

"My passion is helping small-business owners excel in their business and reduce their stress by helping them with the things they don't do best -- such as taxes and finances," she said. "I look forward to meeting new, local small-business owners, hearing their stories and helping where I can."

Small Business Advisory Day is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the MNCPA offices in Bloomington. Please visit www.mncpa.org/SBAD to register for a time slot. Registration closes Aug. 17.

The Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants (MNCPA) serves the public interest by advancing the highest standards of ethics and practice within the CPA profession. MNCPA delivers on that promise by offering extensive continuing professional education and resources; advocating for members and the public with regulatory agencies and boards; and mentoring and encouraging the CPAs and business leaders of tomorrow.
