Factors considered for startup purchasing

California owners of startups should be aware that large companies are buying smaller ones in an effort to remain competitive in their industries and to increase their scalability. Startup owners who are interested in selling their business to one of these large companies should be aware of exactly what these companies are looking for when considering a business to purchase.

Contracts have an important role in business

Many people rely on contracts to ensure that projects and plans go as expected. When you use them in your business, you need to make sure that they can be enforced if necessary. This might seem like something that is going to be pretty easy, but it could be more difficult than what you think.

New corporate tax rates and limited liability companies.

With the recent reduction of the corporate tax rate, will small business owners in San Diego, California change the structure of their businesses? In some cases, the change from a limited liability company (LLC) or a Subchapter S corporation (S Corp.) to a C corporation may be in the works.

Helpful tips for tech industry startups

Proper business formation and planning in California allows entrepreneurs to take advantage of the state's status as the world's fifth-biggest economy. While the Golden State is home to many types of industries, tech startups are particularly popular among young entrepreneurs. Since there is so much competition, however, startups should take steps to maximize the possibility of success.

Golf charity might have avoided trap

Golf lovers in San Diego know that a hole-in-one is an event to be celebrated. Unfortunately, the for-charity 2015 Greenbrier PGA Classic showed that it's best to read the fine print before getting too excited. Its apparent oversight led to insurance litigation over bad faith claims, ultimately leaving the tournament's charitable partners in the rough.

Mergers and acquisitions continue at a fierce pace

As the economy around the world has grown, an increasing number of businesses in California and elsewhere have turned to mergers and acquisitions. The year 2017 showed the third-highest rate of mergers and acquisitions since the 2008 financial crisis.

What to avoid when growing a business

California small business owners who are looking to be successful may try to employ a variety of shortcuts. However, these actions could do more harm than good for a business. For instance, hiring executives or other key employees from large companies may not be as great of an idea as it sounds like. This is because they may not have the mindset that it takes to thrive in a startup or small company.
