Are You Categorizing your Employees and Contractors Correctly?

If you employ people in the state of New Jersey, one of your responsibilities is to contribute toward your employees’ unemployment compensation and state disability benefits funds under N.J.S.A. 43:21‐7. If you employ people as independent contractors, and report their earnings via Form 1099, you may think they are not employees and therefore, you do not have to contribute toward their unemployment and disability. You may very well be wrong.

Bowman Employees Continue Community Service With Habitat for Humanity

The morning started sunny and 80 degrees; however, the temperature would rise to nearly 90 degrees before the day was over. This potentially humid day did not prevent ten volunteers from the management and staff of Bowman & Company LLP from gathering in Burlington, New Jersey, the location of a current housing project for Habitat for Humanity. These volunteers were Jennifer Buccieri, Sarah Donahue, Lauren Granate, Janice Grassia, Maryann Holloway, Stephen Morano, Mitchell Peiffer, Kelly Roche, John Ryan and Kaleigh Sawers.

New Law Permits NJ Fire Districts To Move the Election to November

New Law Permits NJ Fire Districts To Move the Election to November

In January 2012 when Governor Christie signed the law that permitted New Jersey School Districts to move elections from April to November to coincide with the general election, we knew it would not be long before a similar change would be available to New Jersey Fire Districts. On August 7, 2017, Governor Christie signed into law State of New Jersey Assembly Bill No. 1690 (A1690). This law, which takes effect on January 1, 2019 allows fire district elections to be moved to November and eliminates certain  budget and capital purchase referendums. Will New Jersey’s 186 Fire Districts choose to move the election to November?

Bowman Employees Spend a Day with Habitat for Humanity

On May 10, 2017 Bowman & Company LLP once again sent a team of employees to Trenton to help Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County on the construction of a series of 7 homes that will be built.   That morning, fifteen volunteers from the management and staff of Bowman & Company LLP gathered at a site in Trenton, New Jersey, the location of a current housing project.  These volunteers included Alex Davidson, Jennifer Buccieri, Shawn Glynn, Laura Reilly, Dan DiGangi, Kristin Sullivan, Lauren Granate, Carolyn Havlick, Kirk Applegate, Jeffrey Baldino, Michael Cragin, Janice Grassia,Vincent Tomasello, Kelly Roche and Mitchell Peiffer.  As business professionals with little or no experience in construction, there were anxious expressions on many faces!  The day’s success, however, would prove that we had nothing to be anxious about.

The Annual Audit:  Five Keys for Success

The fiscal year has ended and we have reached that time of year when each charter school in the State of New Jersey will undergo an annual audit as required by New Jersey School Statutes.  For some charter schools, this audit may also include a state and/or federal single audit.  For newly established charter schools, this will be your first audit after the completion of your first operating school year.  Does this make you stressed?  It does not have to be a stressful situation.  Your independent auditor can be a resource in your success.  It is never too late to make changes that improve your operations and the audit process.  Here are some keys for success.

What's the buzz about crowdfunding? (Conclusion)

What's the buzz about crowdfunding? (Conclusion)

Editor's Note: This is the fifth and final installment in our ongoing series on crowdfunding.  We recommend beginning with Part One.

Just imagine, your organization’s crowdfunding campaign is about to go live.  Maybe you see yourself presiding over the ribbon cutting for that new city park.  Maybe you will finally bring your invention to the marketplace.  Maybe you see your bank account flush with the level of funding your charity so desperately needs.  You’ve done your research and selected a crowdfunding platform that best meets your organization’s needs.  Now it's time to sit back, put your feet up, and watch as the money comes rolling in right?  WRONG.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Crowdfunding campaigns take continued work, and there are risks to both the recipients and the investor/donors in a crowdfunding campaign.

What's the Buzz About Crowdfunding? (Part 4)

Editor's Note: This is the fourth in our ongoing series on crowdfunding.  We recommend beginning with Part One.

When the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College in Atlanta Georgia was in need of funding for a restoration project, it truly was in need. The estimated cost of the restoration project was $8 million. Where would the college get this level of funding? Could the college take on additional debt to restore this cherished landmark? They could not, so they turned to Indiegogo, a crowdfunding platform, for help. Was it successful? Although the campaign, which is now closed on Indiegogo, did not raise $8 million, it is considered one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns ever with more than $5 million raised. The college continues to raise funds for the project on its own website.

Furlough, downsizing, reduction in services, crumbling infrastructure

In the last few years, these and other similar themes were present in the budget discussions of local government. With New Jersey’s 2% levy cap, local government entitieshave had to prioritize discretionary spending. Applying whatever tools are available just to have a budget with essential services, little is left for capital spending without taking on more debt. In a list of priorities, projects for road repair and purchasing emergency services equipment rise to the top while parks and recreation projects are resigned to a wish list. What if local government had a funding source other than taxes and debt? Could crowdfunding be in the future for local government in New Jersey?

Although the concept of crowdfunding has been around in some form or another since the 1700’s, its modern form began in 1997 when a British rock band asked their fans to fund a reunion tour. In 2000, this online donation form of financing inspired, ArtistShare, the first dedicated crowdfunding platform. In April 2012, the United States government gave crowdfunding its support when President Barack Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law.

What's The Buzz About Crowdfunding? (Part 1)

It seems these days that I can't pick up a publication or read my Twitter feed without seeing an article or posting about crowdfunding.  At a recent conference I attended, one of the keynote speakers listed the nine great sources of capital that didn’t exist a few years ago, and he listed it as number one.
