Businesses will be offered a broad array of pertinent information about tax and law changes, SBA 504 loans, tax appeals, property insurance and condominium restructuring at a free seminar Wednesday in Northfield.

“2013 New Tax Rules & Laws for Business — Understanding & Utilizing Commercial Loan Programs,” will be held from 8 to 10:30 a.m. at Atlantic City Country Club on Shore Road.

The event is presented by the Small Business Development Center at Richard Stockton College and the commercial

division of Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors in Northfield.

Presenters scheduled for the seminar include:

  • Mike Greenwald and Doug Heun, partners in Friedman LLP, on IRS tax rules, new laws in 2013 and 1031 tax-deferred exchanges
  • Attorney Rick Mairone on how to maximize investment through condominium restructuring
  • Brett Balsley and Rich Gerber, of Brett Balsley Insurance Group, on the proper insurance coverage for changing times
  • and Fred Shenkman and Mark Schwartz, of the Cooper Levenson law firm, on tax assessment appeals

Also scheduled to participate are Ocean City Home Bank, Cape Bank, the Regional Business Assistance Corp. and the Greater Atlantic City Chamber.

Joe Molineaux, director of the small-business center, said Janice Johnston, a commercial property specialist with Prudential Fox & Roach, was the catalyst for the event and “extremely helpful in putting the whole seminar together.”

The seminar also will cover the Small Business Administration’s 504 Loan Program, which businesses can use to acquire real property, including the commercial real estate that is their place of doing business as well as commercial equipment.

The seminar is free, but preregistration is required. A continental breakfast will be served.
