Plain and Simple: Bright Business Insights Summer 2018

PLAIN AND SIMPLE Bright Business Insights Vol. 3 | Issue 3 | Summer 2018 Dear Readers, Summer is winding down and you are likely looking ahead to autumn. This is a great time of year for many reasons. For me, the kids are back in school, hunting season is upon us, and I get to have some really great conversations with clients about year-end tax planning strategies. This year, the latter is of particular importance. From the adoption of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to the historic South Dakota v. Wayfair decision, we’ve seen a lot of significant changes this year. The articles we’ve included in this edition of Plain & Simple will shine some light on these changes while providing you with some insight into how, with a little planning, you can still come out on top. Manufacturing Education Day We continue to be committed to helping you achieve success in all aspects of your business. To that end, we are thrilled to invite you to our second annual Manufacturing Education Day, held in conjunction with National Manufacturing Day 2018. I want to stress that the information we will cover is essential to all business owners. Therefore, you don’t have to be a manufacturer to attend this educational event. Whether you are a retailer who is looking for some great insight from industry experts or you have pressing accounting or finance questions related to your business or any manner of business in between, we would like you to join us. Manufacturing Education Day will take place 7 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, at Comfort Suites Hotel & Conference Center, 4810 TR 366, Berlin. The event is free to attend, and breakfast and lunch will be provided. I’ve had a lot of great conversations with many of you over the last year. So when it came time to choose the topics for this year’s Manufacturing Education Day event, I drew on those conversations for inspiration.

You are sure to leave with a wealth of information and a trove of ideas to take back and put to work.
