Join Petrula Vrontikis for an in-depth discussion in this video Disclaimer, part of Running a Design Business: Starting Small.
Okay, so here's the disclaimer. I'm a designer and a professor, not a CPA. I do however have many years of experience as an employer, a creative director, and a small business owner. I teach courses in creativity and professional practice to graphic designers. The information I present in this course is not a substitute for the personal advice you'd get from your accountant or your attorney. If you have questions regarding legal or financial issues, you should seek the services of an appropriate professional.
