Filed under:Firm News
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lane County, OR – October 2018
Jones & Roth CPAs & Business Advisors are pleased to announce that the company has joined FormIT!™ as a business advisor. The FormIT!™ program for small business startups was founded by Eugene business attorney Jill Fetherstonhaugh of Business Law Centre. The program offers entrepreneurs and new business owners an opportunity to visit with 3 key advisors that include a business attorney, a CPA, and a business banker. The advisors each offer a complimentary one-hour session that covers an overview of key legal, accounting, and banking perspectives for small business management success.
Fetherstonhaugh describes the impetus for the program “I developed FormIT!™ to make it easy and affordable for a new business owner to get the start-up advice they need right off the bat to avoid problems that might threaten their small business. I am really excited about the FormIT!™ program, and it is my hope that many Oregon small businesses will reap the short and long-term benefits of FormIT!™ as a part of the legal business formation process, I always recommend that my small business clients engage a CPA and banker right from the start. Without exception, a successful business always has a trusted lawyer, CPA, and banker!”
Her next step was to recruit a CPA firm. “At Jones & Roth, we have historically served small businesses for many years. When Jill Fetherstonhaugh approached us about the The FormIT!™ program concept, we saw an immediate fit for our clients, the Lane County business community and our advisors” stated Robert Adrian, Client Services Advisor. Banner Bank was also quick to see the value. “Banner Bank has a long history serving startups and small businesses. When Jill contacted us to describe the FormIT!™ program, we saw it as an extension of the small business education that we always strive to provide” articulated Mike Murphy, Senior Vice President at Banner Bank.
The FormIT!™ program is designed to help Oregon based small businesses to get a solid start and reach their full potential. The program is currently accepting applicants.
