OEN Workshop in Hillsboro: Tax Issues for Startups

Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce
5193 NE Elam Young Pkwy, Suite A
Hillsboro, Oregon 97124, US (map)



Does the word "taxes" have you reacting with a blank, questionable stare?

When making a list of priorities, startups tend to list taxes right above, "getting a plant service for the office." As with most startups, there may be a significant period of time before the business becomes profitable. However, there are business decisions you make today that can greatly affect your income tax situation in the future. These decisions include what type of entity your company wants to be, where your company wants to be located or even how your company obtains sales. Also, there are other types of taxes besides income, e. g. sales, payroll and B & O, that can distract you from the beginning. Andrew Meyers will help get you through the startup "tax maze" so that you can more effectively focus on growing your startup and be well positioned for long-term success.

Speaker: Andrew Meyers Andrew joined the Perkins & Co tax department in 2005 and is a member of our high-tech/emerging growth and real estate practice groups.

Andrew has diversified experience managing tax engagements in a wide variety of companies in several industries, including distributors, manufacturing, technology and real estate. His experience includes working with all types of entity structures; however, much of his time is spent assisting our corporate clients engaged in the manufacturing of technology related products who file in multiple jurisdictions. This gives him a wide range of knowledge in areas related to state/local nexus and filing requirements, revenue recognition issues and research & development credits, as well as other challenges businesses confront in this industry.

Prior to joining us, Andrew spent a year and a half as an auditor at a mid-size local firm in Portland where he served manufacturing, technology and privately held businesses.

Andrew holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting as well as Economics from Portland State University. He is a licensed CPA and a member of the AICPA and OSCPA. He is also a member of YPOP, a networking organization for young professionals in the Portland metro area.
