Exporting workshop series is set
A free workshop series to help owners and managers of small businesses learn how to export begins in Reno on Sept. 10.
The first session of the series known as “Nevada Exporting” will feature Jeff Sutich, international marketing coordinator for the Nevada Department of Agriculture and Kristopher Sanchez, director of international trade of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
Further sessions will will be scheduled every few months, the organizers said.
The workshop is set for 5-7 p.m. at the Redfield Campus. For registration, go online to http://www.nsbdc.org.
The series is sponsored by the Nevada Small Business Development Center in cooperation with GOED and the Small Business Administration.
The rate effective Jan. 1, 2020, is 1.65 percent of wages paid to employees. That is two-tenths of a percent lower than the current rate, giving a significant break to businesses that pay the tax.
