Business Finance Solutions Schedules Free Small Business Webinars


Business Finance Solutions (www.lesliethacker.com) announces its ongoing free webinar series designed for small business owners. Designed for busy small business owners and their financial staffs, the webinar series will feature a different topic each week during the months of April 2008. The format of the one hour webinar will be 50 minutes of interactive computer presentation followed by 10 minutes of question and answer.

Pflugerville, TX, March 27, 2008 --(PR.com)-- 4/8/08 Webinar 10:00 A.M. CDT
Topic: Implications of FICO 2008 Credit Scoring Model on Small Business Owners
Cost: Free
Time: 50 minute presentation, 10 minutes Q&A
Instructor: Sam Thacker, (Business Finance Solutions)
Intended Audience: Small business owners, prospective small business owners whether a sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership, or LLC.

Description: As a result of the recent sub-prime mortgage crisis, Fair Isaacs, the company that designed the FICO model for credit scoring which is the most widely used by lenders today, is making significant overhauls to its scoring model. The new model is being phased in beginning March 2008. The new model is supposed to more accurately reflect characteristics of a person’s ability to assume debt. Small business owners should be aware of the changes anticipated in the new model as it will affect their ability to secure necessary credit for their businesses.

Cost: Free
Time: 50 minute presentation, 10 minutes Q&A

Description: With new homebuilding down and the regional economy in a state of flux, many small business construction companies are finding it difficult to maintain adequate cash flow. Although the number of lenders who will lend into this marketplace is small, there are answers that may work for many companies.

Discussed will be construction factoring, and using other assets as collateral for working capital.

4/22/08 Webinar 10:00 A.M. CDT
Topic: Texas Margin Tax Issues for Small Business
Cost: Free
Time: 50 minute presentation, 10 minutes Q&A
Instructor: David Fitzgibbons, CPA, CM&AA (Briggs & Veselka Co).
Intended Audience: Small business owners of “chartered” companies doing business in Texas, their controllers, and bookkeepers.

Description: Even though the new “Texas Margin Tax” law has been in force since January 1, 2007, the vast majority of small business owners are not aware of its implications or preparations they should make to prepare for their payments which begin May 15, 2008 for the tax year 2007. Called by some as the largest "tax" ever created by the state legislature, the tax will affect many companies that never have had to pay Texas Franchise Taxes.

This webinar will help small business owners understand what the tax is, the three methods of calculating it (for planning purposes), and what types and sizes of business are most affected.
