New 2018 Gavrilov Glamour Guide in the NYC New Year

It’s also a glamorous holiday for New York City.  And the beauty industry blazes today with glitz and glamour for all the Celebration Parties.  Uptown, Downtown and Midtown, salon and spa owners are  in frantic preparation.  They are glazing, dipping, polishing and arranging every hair, fingernail and skin cell of patrons for their New Year Look.

We are breathless in anticipation of the ultimate glittering moment.

Party Time to Celebrate 2018
Glamorized for 2018

This is the moment when the champagne pops, the ball drops in Times Square, and the midnight kisses sizzle.  Gavrilov & Co accountants hate to be kill-joys.  And the tax squad looks on in dismay.  But we have to ask, “How many of those busy salons and spas will remain open for business by January 31st of next Year?  The dull truth behind the shiny business of beauty is that a spa or salon cannot succeed without help from meticulous accounting, strategized tax planning and compliant payroll.  Attention, New Announcement of the Secret Salon Niche for Gavrilov & Co in the coming year.

There could be no better time for us to announce that Gavrilov & Co accountants have been the best-kept secret.  They have been nurturing the numbers behind successful salon and spa businesses in NYC for almost a quarter of a century.  In the new year, our CPA’s invite salon-owners to enjoy best business practices with salon-specific income tax strategy.  And this will include accounting procedures for payroll, booth rentals, and tip compliance.

New Year Note New Salon Owners:  Wake up and Smell the Tip Tax Compliance

Gavrilov wants you to know that the real authority on Tip reporting is the IRS.  We know a salon owner who recently had to pay 70,000.00 because of problems with Tip Reporting and Withholding Tax.  These problems included ignoring it, installing an ATM, and forbidding tips on credit cards.  He, like many salon owners, just thrust it off to the employee’s responsibility.  Successful salon owners do their research with IRS.  Here’s the enigma:  it takes 10,000 hours of study to master the basics of tax law.  If you do not have time, then you can rely on experts like Garvilov & Co.  They know how to weave the beauty industry with best business practices in accounting and tax payment.

Tax Time is almost here.

New Year of New Tax Mandates for All Businesses

Don’t worry just because we shine a spotlight on the beauty salon/ spa niche does not mean we will in any way neglect other business specialties.  We have general knowledge and tax tips all businesses need to know as the New Year slides into tax season.

Thus, meanwhile, we will be blogging about the new Corporate tax rate, the repeal of the AMT and the extension of the modified bonus depreciation under Sec. 168(k).  Sec. 168(k) allows “businesses to immediately deduct 100% of the cost of eligible property in the year it is placed in service, through 2022.  The amount of allowable bonus depreciation will then be phased down over four years.  80% will be allowed for property placed in service in 2023, 60% in 2024, 40% in 2025, and 20% in 2026.” (For certain property with long production periods, the above dates will be pushed out a year.)

Of special note is the fact that the act also removed the rule that made bonus depreciation available only for new property.  Find out soon about the depreciation limits on luxury autos for your business.  And learn everything you were afraid to ask about Sec. 179 expensing under the new bill.
