Next Wednesday, November 18, 2020, I will be speaking on a virtual panel discussing how to close your business the right way. In particular, the webinar will focus on the legal and financial implications of closing a business and how business owners can exit their business while minimizing the personal impact on individuals, whether owners, employees, contractors, or others connected to the business.

There are various reasons why owners may want to close their business from financial troubles, to other priorities in their lives, or even because those owners are ready to start a different business. Regardless of the reason, failing to take the proper steps and leaving important tasks undone can result in continued business liabilities or penalties for unpaid taxes. Even if your business is flourishing it’s still a good idea to understand the rights steps to take when you’re ready to exit or close down a business.

The webinar is next Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. MST and is entirely free to join. If you’re interested in joining, please register here:
