URGENT - Urge Your US Representative to Co-Sponsor /Support HR 609 - 9/10/2019 - 3/31/2020
Urge Your US Representative to Co-Sponsor and Vote FOR HR 609, The Mergers, Acquisitions, Sales and Brokerage Simplification Act of 2019!

Your US Representative needs to hear from YOU that this bill is important to you, and to the thousands of small business owners, buyers and sellers that you assist!

Over the next few weeks the US House of Representatives is scheduled to take up HR 609, The Small Business Mergers, Acquisitions, Sales and Brokerage Simplification Act of 2019. Earlier versions of this bill have passed the full House UNANIMOUSLY [HR 2274 (113th) 422-0; and HR 477 (115th) 426-0].

This bill will codify the regulatory relieve envisioned in the SEC M&A Broker No Action Letter released in January, 2014.

It will harmonize federal regulations with the Model State Rule that was formally adopted by NASAA in September 2015, which is currently being adopted state by state.

In order to get the US Senate to take this bill up and enact it into law this session, we need HR 609 pass the House by a wide, bipartisan majority. Ideally, we'd like to see it pass again UNANIMOUSLY.

Send an email NOW to your US Representative, urging him/her to CO-SPONSOR HR 609, and urge his/her colleagues to vote FOR HR 609 when it comes before the House Financial Services Committee, and ultimately, the full House.

Monthly OBBA Meeting in Columbus - February - 2/12/2020
We had our kick-off meeting last month where we shared the valuable ROBS program to help you get your deals to the closing table.

A ROBS (Rollovers as Business Startups) plan is an arrangement by which the prospective business owner uses their Traditional IRA or 401(K) retirement funds to pay for new business start-up costs, or to put money into an existing business. This is accomplished when the ROBS plan uses the retirement rollover assets to purchase stock of the business. ROBS allows for funding to potentially circumvent the need for a business loan or taxes and penalties associated with an early withdrawal.

Join your fellow members of another enlightening Best Practice Knowledge Transfer in our meeting.

We meet and gather around 11:30am and promptly out by 1:15pm. Not a huge time to miss from production but priceless time invested to learn best practice and get updated in our unique industry.
