10 Business Compliance Milestones That Also Require Insurance Coverage

10 business milestones that also requires insurance

Make Sure Your Business Is Fully Licensed and Insured

Starting and growing a business takes a unique skill set: persistence, leadership, the ability to see the big picture. It also takes a great deal of paperwork. With every business milestone—forming a business entity, hiring employees, establishing offices, providing new services—business owners need to meet a whole new set of regulatory requirements. That’s pretty hard to do when you’re trying to stay focused on bigger things. Yet missing a government requirement can carry steep penalties and even threaten your ability to do business.

One way to make sure you’ve met all the requirements without missing a beat is to partner with a specialist. Harbor Compliance manages all of the corporate filings, registrations, and licenses needed to incorporate, run, and grow your business. You lay out your plans, and we make sure you’ve fulfilled your local, state, and federal obligations, down to the last document.

CoverWallet makes the insurance aspects of compliance equally seamless. They help businesses get the insurance they need to meet government requirements at every phase of their development, quickly and painlessly.

Following are highlights of some of the typical regulatory requirements, including insurance, that businesses need to consider at each milestone.

How to Increase Revenue in your Cleaning Services Company


(This is a sponsored post provided by Mike Brown, CEO of Swept)

If you’re running a small to medium size commercial cleaning company, you’re likely juggling many tasks on a daily basis.

I know this because I ran a janitorial business myself, before founding Swept, a technology company that helps owners of commercial cleaning companies keep cleaners and win new contracts.

In my many years as an entrepreneur, I never thought twice about multi-tasking. The nature of the janitorial industry meant I did it all day long, assuming it was the only way to keep up with the constant demands on my time.

But despite how well I juggled dozens of tasks on a daily basis, I felt like I was never really getting ahead. I was spending so much time putting out fires in my business I had no time left at the end of the day to focus on important levers like revenue and growth.

2018 – Important Regulatory Issues for Small Business

2018 (1)

Regulatory issues facing small business are ever changing and never as simple to understand as our lawmakers intend them to be. Small business owners are constantly juggling different priorities and it can be an almost sisyphean task to keep track of proposed new regulatory changes that impact their particular industries. CoverWallet, a platform that helps small businesses buy and manage commercial insurance, has created a list of four “new” issues that you may have missed, which likely affect you and/or your business in 2018.

Corporation or LLC? Which is Best Suitable For Your Business?



When you are thinking to incorporate, you may find yourself wondering which business type to choose. Someone may tell you that “Corporations are too complex. Just form an LLC.” or the other ones may tell you that  “Don’t form an LLC. Form a corporation.” With this confusion going in your head, you may need to get a clear understanding of your options. So let’s sort out your confusion by comparing both LLC and Corporation. But first, know what exactly is an LLC and Corporation.

What is an LLC?

A limited liability company (LLC) is a business structure in which the members of the company cannot be held personally liable for the company’s liabilities or debts. Limited liability companies are usually hybrid entities with the characteristics of both a corporation and a partnership or sole proprietorship. The main highlight of an LLC is the availability of flow-through taxation to the members of an LLC, which means that the profits and losses are directly passed through your personal income without facing corporate taxes. The members of an LLC are recognized as self-employed and are required to pay self-employment tax contributions towards Medicare and Social Security.

Improving Your Working Capital Through Financing

In today’s economy, your business needs nurturing and attention with sufficient cash flow to continue grow. In addition, you need consistent working capital to pay your ongoing expenses.


Working capital, which is current assets minus current liabilities, needs to be positive or your business can be in serious trouble. A negative working capital is an experience that unfortunately many small businesses share, no matter what sector.  After all, there can be delays in customer payments, slow seasons, an unexpected downturn in the economy or many other events that leave you with a dearth of cash to pay your immediate bills.  Even if you will be swimming in cash in a few months, it doesn’t help you at the moment. In fact, lack of working capital is the most frequent reason cited for small business failures.

While you can try to improve your working capital by adjusting your business plans, renegotiating terms with creditors or trying to get customers to pay in a timelier manner, it may not be enough. You may need to consider getting financing. Fortunately, there are a lot of options, but you need to look into the choices in depth to determine the best solution for your situation.
