SCORE Bucks County plans two new workshops

‘Legal and Tax Issues for Small Business Employers’ and ‘How to Sell a Business’ are set for this month

In a continuing effort to guide Bucks County small business owners through every step of running a business, SCORE Bucks County will share two brand new workshops this month. The local chapter of the national nonprofit organization will offer “Legal and Tax Issues for Small Business Employers” on Feb. 21, and “How to Sell a Business” on Feb. 25.

As part of the first workshop, SCORE Bucks, together with a panel of legal and payroll professionals, will help ensure that small business owners are prepared for hiring employees, along with the legal and tax ramifications.

Attendees of the “Legal and Tax Issues for Small Business Employers” will learn: how and why to incorporate a business; how to set a business up with a bank; how to register a business in Pennsylvania; how to handle state and local tax authorities; the importance of worker’s compensation insurance; and strategies for managing employment, accounting and bookkeeping.

Attorney Christina M. Reger, founding partner of the Law Offices of Christina Reger, and Steve Sabel, vice president of sales for Streamline Payroll, LLC, will lead the workshop.

SCORE Bucks mentor Steve Wolfson will lead the “How to Sell a Business” workshop. Wolfson, who has more than 40 years experience in all areas of wholesale distribution and multi-location retailing, has been involved in several sales of construction equipment-related businesses.

Wolfson, along with Marshal H. Davis, CEO of Davis Law, and Mike McCarthy, an advisor with VR Business Brokers, will help attendees understand what materials to prepare and provide to potential buyers.

Attendees will also learn: the implication of selling a business; how business valuations are determined; and how to handle unexpected situations.
