Topic: “Navigating the perils of DIY Payroll for small business owners”

Laura Osete
Business owners have more than enough to do than to worry about instead of making sure they are in compliance with the IRS when it comes to Payroll.

40% of small businesses get fined an average of $850 each year due to:

  • Paying a contractor that should be an employee
  • Failing to have correct labor posters posted in correct area
  • Missing or paying payroll taxes late

These are simple fixes with just outsourcing your payroll to a licensed and insured company that will take over full liability.

There will be a Q & A session to ask for more specific information.

Laura Oste Bio

I moved to Naples with my entire family from Miami in 2009. I am married to my best friend and biggest fan and we have 3 beautiful children.

Small business has been in my life since my parents bought their bakery when I was just 13 years old. I know the hard work and dedication it takes to make your own business successful. I have been and still am in your shoes. My husband and my oldest daughter run our business so that I can focus on helping others.

I chose to work for Heartland because of what they believe. They believe in being transparent and treating people with respect and honesty. What company creates a bill of rights for all business owners and challenges other companies in our industry to follow the same beliefs? The Merchant Bill of Rights can be found at www.merchantbillofrights.org. If you are not currently being treated that way, it is something to consider.
