Understanding your financial statements and entity structure is a crucial component of your business. Do you know what financial statements represent or which ones are most important? Do you know what entity structure is best for you? Should you be a C corporation? What about an LLC? What difference will that make to your company?
If this situation sounds familiar, then join HA&W’s Jason Bierly and Jae Kim to learn more about financial reporting, how to choose the best entity structure for your company, and some pitfalls to look out for as you grow your business.
