STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – A SCORE-Staten Island webinar of vital concern to small-business owners will spotlight “Business and Bankruptcy in a Post-COVID World.”Presented by three top financial and legal experts, the online workshop – sponsored by Richmond County Savings Bank (a division of New York Community Bank, member FDIC) and the Independent Association of Accountants of Staten Island – will explore ways of avoiding the risks of bankruptcy, highlight new bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy opportunities, and discuss the tax impact of such.
The webinar will be held Thursday, Aug. 13, noon to 2 p.m., via Zoom.
Featured speakers will include Doreen M. Inserra, Richmond-based certified public accountant and certified government financial manager, along with Richard Corash, business attorney, and Paul Hollender, board certified business-bankruptcy attorney, both of Travis-headquartered Corash & Hollender, P.C.
“The web conference will show business owners ways to revive and continue your businesses as you emerge from the COVID-19 slowdown, using New York state non-bankruptcy tools, as well as possibly using the new (2020) Small Business Bankruptcy reorganization laws at an affordable cost,” attorney Corash said.
Taking tax implications into account, the webinar will address a variety of bankruptcy-related topics, such as: Highlights of the Bankruptcy Tax Guide and Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019; alternatives to bankruptcy; bankruptcy options, and achieving a fresh start. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentations.
Two continuing professional education (CPE) or continuing education (CE) credits in taxation are available to qualifying attendees for a nonrefundable cost of $30. (At registration, tax practitioners must provide their PTIN, and CPA’s must provide their CPA License Number. Certificates will only be issued to attendees after submitting an evaluation and sign-off at the end of the program.)
