Event Details


Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK Oakland!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to workshop and discuss. 

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and online via our Facebook Goup) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...

November SPARK: Sole proprietorship or LLC–what’s best for your business?

 

When is the right time to incorporate? What are the tax implications of sole proprietorship? And what about liability?

For many freelancers, incorporation is a key step on the path to a full-time freelance career. This workshop will walk you through the basics of forming an LLC and what incorporation means for your business.

We’ll cover:

  • The benefits of forming an LLC

  • How your business structure affects your taxes

  • The right time to incorporate for your business

Please note this event is for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for legal advice. If you have specific business or contract questions, please consult your legal advisor.



...
There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.



SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.
