Many people think that umbrella insurance is great coverage because it will ‘fill in the gaps’ and cover me if my regular auto, home owners or rental insurance doesn’t cover me- WRONG. Umbrella insurance is built to be there for ‘excess’ claims that might exceed your regularly insurance policy. Moreover, the umbrella policies oftentimes have very specific provisions that it won’t pay out any benefits until primary policy in place has been exhausted.

Having a Board of Directors or Advisors will be a ‘support team’ in many ways; giving encouragement, advice, and guidance regarding your vision and goals.

How you classify a ‘worker’ in your business, whether as an employee or sub-contractor, can have far reaching effects to you AND your business.

This is a unique trick we implement for several clients each year. If you previously paid a lot in Self-Employment Tax and for some reason had an LLC (sometimes a major mistake by other planners), you can easily still elect it to be taxed as an S-Corporation retroactively to January 1st, 2013

I don’t know how this whole craze started and frankly, or who started the spread of misdirection and misinformation, but the LLC for all of its good and bad is here for the foreseeable future. Thus, I would be remiss not to tackle this important topic set the record straight.
