Description: Presented by:
John Smithmeyer
Vice President and Northeast Regional Manager for F.A. Bartlett Tree Experts

As a practicing field arborist or landscaper you may never have thought of yourself as a contractor, but in fact, you are. A tradesman or small businessman who contracts to do specific work for remuneration is considered to be a contractor in the eyes of the law and the IRS. As such, many guidelines and best practices for contractors can be beneficial for you or anyone who is involved in the running of a small business. In this day-long presentation, John will cover basic procedures and practices for office management, accounting, and budgeting, as well as money management and tax implications. He will emphasize standard practices in the arboricultural profession that makes it possible to deliver quality service, retain key clients, and avoid some of the common pitfalls of business management.

This course carries 5.75 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=0, P=0, M=5.75).
