Your Host: Roger Knecht, president of Universal Accounting Center

Guest Name: Adam Farnsworth, CPA

Do you know the 4-part questions to use to determine if someone qualifies for the R&D tax credit?

This conversation with Adam and Roger is going to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  I’m sure you’ll get some great notes from this.

Also, how many of this have said to our spouse “Heh Hon, I’m going to start a business, “trust me I have a plan”, there’s this opportunity and I know what I’m doing?

As accounting professionals, it makes sense we’d create the business plan & proforma.  But what happens when things don’t go as planned?  Are you ready to pivot and following the numbers?  Marketing can change so we need to be ready and willing to go where the clients are.

Adam shares some great ideas and shares some good examples.
