Lunch & Learn: Tax Strategy for Entrepreneurs & Freelancers

The Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce is launching a “Lunch & Learn” program starting on Wednesday, June 29, 12pm noon. The program will be conducted virtually via remote video conference and will feature industry experts presenting on a variety of topics important to small business owners and freelancers. The Lunch & Learn program is part of the Chamber’s continuing effort to support the Flushing community and help revive the local economy, which was devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as a surge in anti-Asian hate crimes and scapegoating.

“We’re proud to be partnering with the Lili Banking for Your Business to bring highly informative and educational webinars for our business community,” stated Taehoon Kim, President of the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce.

The topic of the first Lunch & Learn webinar will be “Demystifying Taxes for Small Business with Lili” – a 1-hour session led by business expert Wendi Caplan-Carroll, who will walk participants through the core tools and information that make tackling taxes (and saving money) easier than ever.

“Lili Banking for Business’s commitment to solo business owners helps empower those building their businesses,” stated SMB expert (and solo business owner) Wendi Caplan-Carroll. “Taxes are one of the biggest challenges stressing out small business owners. This workshop helps alleviate some of that stress by simply breaking down what taxes one would be responsible for and how to make sure you account for all those business expenses that may help you reduce your tax burden and stay more organized.”

Attendees will learn about: Taxes 101: How self-employment and income taxes are calculated; Smart Tax Tools: Leverage Lili to ensure you only pay what you owe; and, Get Prepared: Avoid penalties and organize your finances before you file.

Lili Banking for Business was established in 2018 to empower entrepreneurs with the tools and services designed to save them time and money. Lili is redesigning banking to help the innovation economy – the freelancers and small businesses redefining work – to grow their business. For more information, visit lili.co.

The Chamber’s “Lunch & Learn” program is free and open to the public, but registration is required at lunchlearnwebinar.eventbrite.com.

All registrants will receive a copy of “Your Small Business,” which includes everything you need to know about managing your business.
