Complimentary Webinars

Over the past several years, HBE LLP has hosted complimentary roundtable sessions for nonprofit leaders in finance and accounting roles. Based on the success of those events, and our commitment to provide meaningful value to nonprofit organizations, we are excited to announce that we are expanding our sessions to incorporate topics that extend beyond accounting and finance. In addition, our sessions will be led by guest speakers with specialized knowledge of the nonprofit industry. These speakers are individuals that we have come to know and trust, and we are anxious to share their expertise with you!

  • Best practices for building a legacy giving program within your organization

Session 1: Planning for Succession in the Midst of Uncertainty

Succession planning is a challenging topic to address, but it is critical for the success of your organization to have this discussion. The current COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us all that leadership changes will happen, whether we have made plans for them or not. Please join special guest trainer, Ingrid Kirst, to learn more about creating a solid plan to make those transitions smoother.

We are pleased to introduce HBE 10 Minute Tuesdays! At this semi-monthly complimentary webinar series, held for 10 minutes at 10:00 AM every-other Tuesday, HBE professionals and guest speakers will provide timely updates, information, and education on topics that are important for the growth and success of your business or nonprofit organization.

Cost Segregation

Tuesday, August 4, 2020
10:00 AM CDT | 10 Minutes

With guest speaker, Alan Smith of McGuire Sponsel

When acquiring, renovating, or building real estate, most taxpayers tend to overstate the amount of 39-year real property. This limits the depreciation deductions available to taxpayers in the early stages of their investment. A cost segregation solves this problem by reclassifying assets by maximizing the property eligible for treatment as 5-, 7-, or 15-year property. This depreciation optimization frees up substantial tax flow.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Updates
