Planning for the Next Quarter at Work By: Dr. Ann Gatty

The last quarter of 2019 begins next month. Are you on track to accomplish the goals you set back in January? If you are on track—high five. If you need to reset, let’s get started and regain that focus. There is still time to end the year strong, but it requires you to set priorities and design the implementation process that will make it happen. Each quarter of a calendar year gives you 90 days in which to work. Each quarter of work should build on the previous quarter as you move toward your goals. In other words, this becomes a continuous process. Working in 90-day cycles allows you to focus on a specific purpose that you can complete and use that completed work to build upon during the following 90-day cycle.

Working in 90-day increments keeps you motivated on building your business as you provide service and value to your clients. If your long-term vision is to build a highly profitable business, you’re going to be juggling a lot of pieces as you start. Setting small quarterly goals that can produce significant impact allows you to build on your success and sustain long-term positive-growth. Here are my suggestions to clarify your focus, strengthen your momentum and reach the goals that will continue to propel you into a prosperous 2020. Define the Q4 goals. W hat do you absolu tely need to accom plish by the en d o f 2019? Y o u started the year with ideas about what you expected to accomplish. Now as you enter the last quarter of the year, which opportunities should you pursue to continue moving toward those goals and position you for a strong start in 2020? Make a written list that you can reference and remind yourself to keep you on track.

Start by focusing on each day. One at a tim e. W hat ar e you going to do next? Today —after you finish reading this article? Make today matter. Always prioritize your “to-do” list. Set tasks you control. Think abou t w hat you contr ol. Ver y few things, r ight? Can yo u co ntrol when those referrals come in? Can you control when your client sends those rewritten materials back to you? This step can be made easier simply by thinking about what you can do. How can you make the best of each day? How can you improve your work? I suggest you grab a piece of paper and make a daily list of tasks that you can control. It’s easier to experience that sense of accomplishment when you’re in control of your own destiny. Make modifications when necessary. As you work through each month of Q4, you may find that modifications are necessary to achieve the goals you set. It might make sense to try something new. However, if this new tactic doesn’t go as you had planned, you can modify again to bring you closer to your desired outcome. As you slide into fall, there is still time to achieve the goals and revenue levels that you targeted back in January. You need to stay disciplined with focus and purpose. Depending on the goals you set—keep them realistic, folks-- this should keep your business on a positive growth trajectory with accelerated profits. If you want to be successful in business, remember that time is a valuable resource. Use it wisely to get more out of the work you do.

An Innovative Alternative to Employee Layoffs - Pa’s Shared-Work Program Pennsylvania’s Shared-Work program is a great tool that that allows an employer to temporarily reduce the work hours of a group of employees while supplementing their lost wages with partial unemployment benefits rather than laying off any employees. Employees covered by the Shared-Work plan receive a percentage of their unemployment compensation (UC) weekly benefit amount while they work the reduced schedule, if they are otherwise eligible for UC. Shared-Work plans empower employers to retain a trained and qualified workforce during periods of slowdown, and quickly ramp up operations without the expense of recruiting, hiring, and training new employees. As of fall 2018, more than 200 shared-work plans have been successfully put into action from employers across the commonwealth. With changing dynamics in the modern-day work place, Pennsylvania’s SharedWork program may help your business in its continued success. “As a small company that sells winter heating oil, the Shared-Work program allows us to share the work between employees during the slower, warmer months. The company benefits because it is simple to sign-up for, we save on wages and training costs, and it helps us keep our well-trained employees year after year. “Our employees benefit by maintaining their jobs, pay, and benefits, and enjoy some additional time off during the summer. We are thankful that this program, which we’ve participated in since 2016, has allowed us to avoid annual employee layoffs.” Who is included in the Shared-Work plan? As the employer, you select which employees will be included in the Shared-Work plan. A plan must apply to one “affected unit” which is defined as a department, shift, or other organizational unit. Employers may have more than one plan if there is more than one affected unit. For example, all employees working the night shift may be one unit. All employees in the affected unit must participate; however, an employee who has been employed in the affected unit for less than three months, or an employee who would work 40 or more hours a week under the plan may not participate. There must be at least two participating employees, determined without regard to corporate officers. How much will the employees’ hours be reduced under the Shared-Work program? Once you have identified the affected unit(s), you must select the percentage by which the employees’ hours are reduced, referred to as the “reduction percentage.” The employer determines the reduction percentage based on business needs, but it must be at least 20 percent and cannot exceed 40 percent of the employees’ normal weekly hours. The reduction percentage must be the same for all employees participating in the Shared-Work plan. For example, if an employee normally works 40 hours per week, and the reduction percentage is 20 percent, then the employee’s hours are reduced by 20 percent and he or she would work 80 percent of 40 hours, or 32 hours per week. If an employee in the same unit works 30 hours per week, then he or she would work 80 percent of 30 hours, or 24 hours per week. How are UC benefits determined under the plan? For each week in the plan, an employee receives a percentage of his or her UC weekly benefit amount (WBA) equal to the reduction percentage. For example, if the employee’s WBA is $400 and the employee’s hours are reduced by 20 percent under the plan, the employee would receive 20 percent of $400 (or $80) in Shared-Work UC benefits. What qualifications are required for participation? As an employer, you are eligible to participate in Pennsylvania’s Shared-Work program if you have filed all UC tax reports and paid all amounts due under PA UC Law, have a positive reserve account balance (for contributory employers) and have paid wages for the last 12 consecutive quarters, according to the department’s Office of UC Tax Services.

Legal Housekeeping By Philip J. Scolieri, Esquire As the calendar/fiscal year comes to close for a company, many people think that Legislative the important next step for their company is reviewing the financials and preparCommittee ing for tax season. Although financials are important to the well-being and health of your company, that isn’t where a company’s year-end plans should stop. Many Corner individuals tend to completely disregard entity formalities especially when that entity is single-member or owned amongst family and friends. This is problematic, especially when failure to maintain those formalities can result in “piercing the corporate veil” and personal liability for members and shareholders. When we contact clients about their entities’ year-end plans we typically go through a list of tasks that should be completed, at a minimum, annually. Hold an Annual Meeting Towards the end of the year, an entity should schedule an annual meeting. This annual meeting should be a time for all members/shareholders/boards of directors/managers to sit down to review the year and make strategic plans for the following year. Even if an entity is a single member entity, that individual should set aside time to review the prior year’s operations. Without truly setting aside time to review the year, in its entirety, a company can miss out on seeing the big picture and what their company needs to alter and maintain to stay in business for years to come. Yearly meetings may only be a statutory requirement for Pennsylvania corporations, but all entities could benefit from, at a minimum, annual meetings. Corporations have an added requirement of keeping annual minutes. These minutes are essentially notes on what occurred at the annual meeting, who the board of directors are, and any other changes that may have occurred to the corporate structure which was voted on during the meeting. These should be kept and maintained in a corporate book with all stock certificates, resolutions, Bylaws, and any amendments or revisions to the corporation that has taken place over the years. Review Company Records and Filings In Pennsylvania a domestic corporation and limited liability company are not required to file annual reports to update addresses and contact information. This does not mean, however, that this should be overlooked. The address you have listed on the Corporations Bureau website, is the address you will be served at should you ever be sued in a court of law. It will also be deemed to be the mailing address should you need to be notified of something from said Corporations Bureau. It is important to know what that address is, and if necessary, change it when the old address is no longer in use. If you use a registered office service provider, be sure that they have all your appropriate contact information should they ever need to reach you otherwise they may be unable to inform you of any service received. One should also review their company records. If you have added members or removed members was that properly documented somewhere? Do you have executed stock certificates or a transfer agreement? Did you revise your operating agreement to properly reflect the member change? You want to be sure that every step you take within your entity is properly documented somewhere. If you sell a substantial asset of the company you should have a signed resolution showing that all members/shareholders agree to that sale and corresponding sales price. If you add a member or remove a member you will want the consideration paid for that removal and addition properly documented and that members/shareholders agreed to that transfer. The more you document, the less issues you will experience when selling your business, taking out a loan, or winding down your business. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a formal document, but it should clearly explain what change is taking place and that everyone within the entity was informed and agrees.

Legal Housekeeping continued ‌... Review Contracts and Agreements Should your entity have any agreements (e.g., leases, service contracts, employment agreements, etc.) you should take the time to go through them and be sure that both sides are upholding their end of the bargain. Taking the time to review them and their terms also allows you to think of costs associated with that agreement and the applicable termination terms so that, if possible, you can take advantage of potentially lower cost options for your entity. You will also know when you need to renew if the contract is especially advantageous for your company. Reviewing these yearly, especially if these are older agreements, is a great way to assist you in planning the future growth and plans for your company.

Prepare Financial Information Compile all financial documentation and records and contact a CPA. A CPA will be able to best advise you as to not only your current financial situation and be sure that you are prepared come tax time, but also assist with planning for years to come. Whether it be taking advantage of certain tax incentives, altering the structure of your entity to have a more favorable tax year, or even just assisting with better record-keeping you should be in close contact with your CPA to be sure that you are making the most out of your company.

Three Tips for Getting an Accurate Business Valuation ADVERTORIAL

If you're conscientious about financial reporting, you may already have a sense of your company's worth, but in some instances, you might need a formal business valuation, such as:   

Certain transactions: Are you selling your business? Planning an IPO? Need financing? Tax purposes: This includes estate planning, stock option distribution, and S Corporation conversions. Litigation: Often needed in cases like bankruptcy, divorce, and damage determinations.

There isn't a single formula for valuing a business, but there are generally accepted measures that will give you a valid assessment of your company's worth. Here are three tips that you can use to give your business a more accurate valuation. 1. Take a close look at how your business operates. Does it incorporate the most tax-efficient structure? Have sales been lagging or are you selling most of your merchandise to only a few customers? If so, then consider jump-starting your sales effort by bringing in an experienced consultant who can help. Do you have several products that are not selling well? Maybe it's time to remove them from your inventory. Redesign your catalog to give it a fresh new look and make a point of discussing any new and exciting product lines with your existing customer base. It might also be time to give your physical properties a spring cleaning. Even minor upgrades such as a new coat of paint will increase your business valuation. 2. Tangible and intangible assets. Keep in mind that business valuation is not just an exercise in numbers where you subtract your liabilities from your assets, it's also based on the value of your intangible assets. It's easy to figure out the numbers for the value of your real estate and fixtures, but what is your intellectual property worth? Do you hold any patents or trademarks? And what about your business relationships or the reputation you've established with existing clients and in the community? Don't forget about key long-term employees whose in-depth knowledge about your business also adds value to its net worth. 3. Choose your appraisal team carefully. Don't try to do it yourself by turning to the Internet or reading a few books. You may eventually need to bring in experts like a business broker and an attorney, but your first step should be to contact us. We have the expertise you need to arrive at a fair valuation of your business. If you need a business valuation for whatever reason, please don't hesitate to call and speak to a tax and accounting professional who can help.
