Home is where the heart is. But for more than two thirds of all start-ups, home is also where the business is.

Home is where the heart is. But for more than two thirds of all start-ups, home is also where the business is. Internet commerce and mobile technology have made it possible for entrepreneurs, and their workers, to survive and thrive, from the comfort of their own homes.

At this time of year, as thoughts naturally turn to hearth and home, your friends at TBS Capital Funding would like to remind you that your home office is a great tax deduction. The IRS offers two ways to calculate this deduction – the old “actual” expenses method, where you document your home expenses and deduct a share proportionate to the square footage allocated for business; and a new “safe harbor” method, effective since 2013, which assigns a standard $5 per square foot deduction, up to 300 square feet. As with any deduction, it makes sense to compare the two methods, to see which is best for you.

TBS Capital Funding does not offer tax or legal advice, but we can help get you through a cash crunch come tax time. We transform accounts receivable to cash, typically same-day, giving you the immediate cash you need to pay your tax bill, without loading you up with debt. Try it out today!

For 2015 start-ups, one of those milestones comes with turning the calendar page over to January 2016. If you’ve never owned a business before, you may not be aware that any expen

Document, document, document – you’ve heard it a thousand times. But let’s be honest: There are many state, local and federal reporting requirements and regulations that it’s hard to keep up with them all, around the real work of finding clients and fulfilling orders.  Small business owners tend to spend first, and document later. There’s no shame in that; it’s more common than you might think. But failure to document can be a real problem when it comes to things like mileage deductions and business expense
