How I can help…
If you need support with protecting other assets, investments, cash, other businesses, or how to scale back, shut some down, cut overhead with fees, I can help you navigate through those situations
You may need support with your sales tax compliance and need support with knowing when to register or not during this crisis. Our team has applied for thousands of sales tax permits since 2015
I have paid for consultations with the top tax and law firms in the U.S. to break down the factors to determine in which situations should you start with an LLC, and how it should be taxed, or another starting point. The next level is which structures require another layer for the ownership, which most don’t cover. I will cover other complexities if you live overseas and need insights on tax treaties, U.S. returns, sales tax compliance, and much more. If you have multiple partners that can be complex, it is another area I excel in explaining the best options.
Although I will not give you financial advice for your investments, I have had a series 7 license in the past and stay on top of the global markets, especially as it applies to our clients doing business. I thoroughly understand both personal and business credit and how they interplay. It is a must that your company is not financially naked, which most are in the business credit bureaus. I operated a company for 10 years that focused on companies’ best ways to obtain business credit while maintaining 100% ownership.
You are likely working with your CPA’s to take advantage of the government’s $2 trillion relief package, which you should do. We recommend you get all the financial support to conserve your cash flow, which is your business’s oxygen. We work together if you need a referral; we will make a recommendation. You will also need to consider how to build business credit and your financial strength, even if at some point in the future is another round of federal funding. For many years (2003 to 2014), we helped with business credit and funding with our company called Fast Business Credit. To help entrepreneurs obtain business credit and understand cash and vendor credit, business credit bureaus…that service is being updated to help more entrepreneurs during this crisis. If you are a foreign seller with no SSN, the rules are different, and you need to know them. Over the years, I have interviewed dozens of leading financial experts, bankers, and credit gurus about how the system works (very counter-intuitive) and how to get the best results. In the end, I can help you ask the right questions and give you the best resources to make sure you know what your best financial options.
There are many moves to make when you expand to the U.S. e-commerce market strategically. Those moves involve which platforms you are selling on, the process to get registered, your goals with your brand, which structure is best, and your U.S. tax impact on your overall structure. There is a lot of parts and pieces of information online. The real challenge is to make all the right moves that lead to your best result. That is where I will help you the most.
I am a master practitioner in NLP, neuro-linguistic programming (think of Tony Robbins), and that is most important when it comes to determining the best patterns for success. It may be how to overcome the pattern of overwhelm or the Disney pattern for creating new ideas or changing beliefs that support you to focus on the opportunity… I see opportunities worldwide, mainly because I ask quality, better questions regarding beliefs that help drive me.
