Don't forget about Small Business Saturday on Nov 26!
Saturday, November 26, 2022 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. This year, we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Please join SBA and organizations across the country to show your support by shopping at your local, small businesses.
Tax Credits to Consider
Virginia SBDC network member, Mike Austin, has compiled a non-exhaustive list of tax credits worth considering for small businesses.
