They share any information that’s available concerning our business or things that might affect our business. And I think they also are very effective in helping you understand why you need to look at things differently if you’re not looking at them the right way.

Employees Exempt from Withholding: An employee who certified to his employer on Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, that he had no income tax liability for 2009 and anticipated no income tax liability for 2010 was entitled to an exemption from withholding for 2010. If the employee expects to incur income tax liability in 2010, a new Form W-4 must be given to the employer by February 15, 2011.
Change in Exemptions: If an employee loses an exemption at the beginning of the New Year for any reason, they should also file a new Form W-4 for 2011. An employee who wishes to make changes to their current withholding should also file a new Form W-4.



For 2010, you are encouraged to notify the following employees that they may be able to claim the EIC on their 2010 returns:
Employees with one qualifying child and wages less than $35,535


It’s a fact of life. And in business, how you react to change can mean the difference between success and failure.

But that doesn’t mean we’re always comfortable with change. Sometimes even that slight fear of change — of the “unknown” — prevents us from making decisions that can have a tremendous positive impact.
This is especially true when it comes to making changes to significant business partnerships, such as your funding provider.
If you’re staying in a funding relationship that’s not exceeding your expectations at every turn because the thought of making a switch (and all the work that goes with it) seems daunting, think again.
Transitioning to a new funding provider can be a seamless, simple process if you're prepared and know what to expect.
The process of switching to a new funding provider is relatively simple. There are just a few easy steps to the process.

Research Funding Providers

Wondering where to begin? There are a few places you can start to find reliable, flexible funding options:

“…Are there going to be any surprises? Did you ask all the right questions? What business owners and entrepreneurs are very concerned about is if they didn’t ask all the right questions, somebody may not volunteer the right answer, and you wake up with a real problem on your hands.”

—Robb Mulberger, President, NRI Staffing

It can be an unknown variable. Once you sign a contract for an important business relationship such as funding for your staffing company, how will that relationship actually unfold? Will everything the sales people told you before you signed the contract come to pass? Or, once you’re on board, does the service you experienced during the sales process become a thing of the past? Most importantly, how can you ensure your expectations are met once you’ve signed the contract?

Unfortunately, you do hear the stories.

The sales people were so nice and courteous. Everything they told you about how the relationship would function is exactly what you were looking for in a funding partner. So you sign the contract with high expectations and a hopeful eye on the future.
