Access to Capital & One-on-One Business Consulting

Access to Capital

Businesses often need money to attain a new business or grow their present business. Lending generally leaves business owners in complete control of your company and is quicker than seeking equity capital. Our highly experienced business advisors can help you prepare a loan package, identify equity financing options as well as sources of funding.

New State Law Requires Electronic EDD Filings

Beginning January 1, 2017, Assembly Bill 1254 stipulates that all employers in California will be required to electronically submit employment tax returns, wage reports, and payroll tax deposits to the Employment Development Department (EDD). To benefit employers, this law was enacted to increase data accuracy, increase data security, and reduce overhead costs. 

To allow employers ample time to prepare, the new law will be phased-in over a two-year period based on the number of employees:         

  • January 1, 2017 – Employers with 10 or more employees 
  • January 1, 2018 – All employers        

About e-Services for Business:

The EDD encourages employers to use e-Service for Business to file electronic documents in compliance with the e-file and e-pay mandate. e-Service for Business helps employers, employer representatives, and payroll agents manage an employer payroll tax account online 24/7 – at no cost. There is no additional software requirement needed to access these services. For more information or to create an e-Service for Business account, please visit
