Small Business Setup & Self Employment Setting up a small business, even if you are the only employee of that business, requires solid planning to ensure success. Make sure you have your “parachute” packed when making the leap from employee to small business owner!

Today people have more choices than ever before when it comes to making a living. Even those who keep their regular full time positions as employees are taking on side work as independent contractors and some are choosing to make the leap to full time self employment or small business setup.

This may be your first foray into realms outside of employment with little to no understanding of the tax implications involved in such ventures. Did you know that for most Sole Proprietors as much as 50.3% of every dollar of profit that they make could be owed to the IRS, Social Security and Medicare?

We understand it can be difficult knowing where to turn for accurate advice or information to educate yourself about your new circumstances. Here at Summerville & Associates Accounting, we embrace the mantra “knowledge is power”. Our small business accounting services focus on empowerment, through education to help you learn to make educated decisions regarding tax liabilities.
