Are you getting ready to do your taxes? In this teach-in our Director of Economic Democracy, Ricardo Nuñez, and SELC Staff Attorney, Gregory Jackson, will provide an introduction to the powerful way that worker cooperatives equitably distribute wealth and why it matters for your cooperative’s taxes! They’ll cover:
✅ How does money flow through a cooperative business?
✅ What are some of the tax and accounting issues in a cooperative?
✅ What cooperative specific tax benefits exist and how can your cooperative take advantage of them?
We’ll also be joined by a Kieron Slaughter, Chief Community Development Officer at the City of Berkeley’s Office of Economic Development, to share how Berkeley businesses can access the Berkeley Revolving Loan Fund, particularly in light of the coop-friendly amendments that went into effect in 2020 and the influx of CARES-funded no/low-interest loans (so exciting!).
We’d like to thank the City of Berkeley for sponsoring this event and making more resources available to grow the cooperative economy in Berkeley!
If you are an entrepreneur, a business owner thinking about succession planning or transitioning to an employee owned company, or a worker coop with worker-members or candidates looking to skill up (Principle 5!), this training is for you!
ASL interpretation will be provided.
