Do you own a sole proprietorship? Join Start Small Think Big and Small Business Majority as we discuss the legal and tax implications of being self-employed and of sole-proprietorships. We will cover key considerations when determining whether or not you ought to incorporate your business, including federal and state unemployment taxes and access to unemployment benefits during COVID-19.

Topics Include:

  • What being "self-employed" means for your small business
  • The legal and tax consequences of being "self-employed"
  • Tips and resources for how to run a sole-proprietorship in California
  • Tips and resources for how to hire employees or incorporate your business

A question and answer period with lawyers and advisors will follow.
