Beware fraudulent lending practices

Georgia residents who are struggling to keep up with their mortgage payments can understandably be worried about how they may avoid losing their homes and how to deal with sometimes aggressive debt collectors and lenders. One thing people in this situation should investigate is the validity of their mortgages. Sadly, some mortgage are better than others and that is not always about interest rates.

Falling behind on payments does not have to mean foreclosure

The storms of life and the ups and downs of the economy in Georgia and across the U.S. have made home foreclosures a common occurrence in the last few decades. Homeowners who have lost a job or find themselves in other financial straits may feel that losing their home is inevitable, but that is not always the case.

Contracts can break down at any step in the process

A fundamental principle in business is the agreement between two parties for goods and services. Sometimes it’s a buyer-seller relationship, other times it’s something behind the scenes that is essential to help you get your job done. Whatever the contract is, it affects your bottom line and your business overall. It may be something obvious and central to your brand or it can be a subtle cog in the system.

Addressing contract dispute matters

When it comes to contract disputes, the consequences can be very damaging for businesses of all sizes and across various fields. Our law firm knows that these disputes can present various challenges for businesses across Georgia, such as a great deal of stress, time, money, and other resources. Moreover, the outcome of a contract dispute can impact business relationships, affect a company's reputation, and have other repercussions, which highlights how important it is for you to address a contract dispute appropriately.

Do you need an EIN?

One of the most important things for you to consider when forming a business is your tax profile. Depending on how you plan to operate, you may first need authorization from the Internal Revenue Service to manage your companies tax affairs and liabilities appropriately. This starts by understanding whether or not you need an Employment Identification Number (also called a business tax ID). You have likely seen one before; it should have been printed or written on all of the W-2 forms you have received from past employers. Yet without a working knowledge of the U.S. Tax Code, how are you to know if you need one?
