Don't miss your fall FitBiz by SNEWS®, a 10-page retail-centric business journal to spice up your autumn. As usual, SNEWS® readers get a first crack at reading the issue; it won't go out to others or be posted in public areas of the website for a few weeks.
This fall's journal, all electronic, takes a look at the fitness side of what has become a national discussion -- quality control issues with products coming out of Asia, how some manufacturers' deal with the problems or potential problems, and what retailers can do to help make their lives and the lives of their customers run more smoothly.
We've rounded out that in-depth look with a feature on end-of-year tax and business planning for the small business. If you haven't done the things outlined in this piece, it's time.
Of course, with so many tax issues to consider as a small business, the advice couldn't fit into one story. Our authors -- accountants Jeff Taksey and Ed Neff -- will continue the tax planning discussion in two more columns that will run in the Training Center on SNEWS® in November (www.snewsnet.com/trainingcenter). So if this FitBiz was passed to you and you don't have your own SNEWS® subscription, it's time to get that in gear.
