How can I hire myself, anonymously, for overflow freelance work?

I am in charge of communications for a medium-size department in a much larger institution. I've been mandated to expand our communications channels over the past few years, which I have done, but am having trouble populating them with quality content -- and content creation is not actually among my formal responsibilities. It's impossible to find local people in my small city that can support me as freelance writers at the speed, frequency and price point I need, and remote hiring has not been a great success in the past. I'm capable of doing the writing work quickly, efficiently and well, but can't do it during my regular hours. Is there any way I can hire myself as a freelance writer, working on my own time, without my bosses knowing I'm hiring myself? [Canada] [more inside]

Is it worth it for an Ontario freelancer to be incorporated?

About 20 years ago, I needed to set up a corporation to work freelance for a large Ontario film production company. A couple of different accountants over the years advised me to hang on to the corporation and they allocated my yearly salary as a management fee. That paradigm shifted this past year and now I'm wondering if invoicing through an incorporated entity is worth the expense and hassle. [more inside]

LLC vs S-Corp in New York State

I'm forming a company around an app, with myself as the sole investor and shareholder -- and my lawyers (based in CA) have advised me to go with an S-Corp instead of an LLC to avoid paying an extra $2k for New York's ridiculous "publication requirements" for LLCs. What's the catch though? I mean if this works, why doesn't everyone do it?

Is there a reference / rule-of-thumb etc. that would show me when I need to display the “Incorporated” status of my business?

I have recently incorporated my business. My question is does anyone have experience regarding how I now need to refer to my business in print and online?

help me help the man

I'm trying to make my new web project legal in California. After reading through the Nolo press book(s), we thought that perhaps the LLC was the best corporate structure (we are going to issue stock and give the primary developer a portion in lieu of payment). While the Federal government taxes LLCs like sole proprietorships - you aren't taxed unless you make profit, and I don't see our profit outpacing our costs for a year - the State of California charges an LLC "tax" (really a fee) of $800, due almost immediately after your incorporation paperwork goes through, so...

Advice for recovering long-overdue debt

I'm trying to recover a debt owed to me (currently $1300+) by a client for whom I worked as an independent tech contractor in 2002-03. He's very slowly paid off a lot of the original debt ($5000), but he stopped making the payments almost two months ago with no explanation, and has been completely non-responsive to all my contact attempts ever since. It's a matter of very high personal importance that I recover the full debt in this case (because this is a very slimy guy, and because his company could not have started up or earned money without my work). I also need the money, so this is not something I can walk away from in that sense either. [more inside]
