Understanding overhead and year-end tax planning will be topics presented at the 2009 PHCC Connect, Oct. 21-23 in New Orleans. Speaker Michael Bohinc, a CPA with a background in the plumbing and heating industry, will present the following courses:

  • Understanding Overhead - Many contractors rely on gut instinct instead of the hard numbers from their financials to make business decisions. Attendees will learn how to calculate break-even costs, how much revenue it takes to support a truck or an employee and why cutting overhead is a tough way to increase profits. 

  • Year-End Tax Planning: How The New Tax Laws Impact You And Your Business - Come to this session to learn about what energy tax credits are available and how they can help you sell more work. How will IRC Section 179 impact your business? Are you buying a home in 2009 or 2010? Children going to college? Buying a new car? Find out what tax benefits are available for you.
