    The Best Business Entity Structure for Farms

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Jun 20  

    One of the most common questions I receive as a tax professional is “What type of business entity should I choose?” Most new business owners are overwhelmed at this decision and do not fully understand the differences between types of entities. This article will explain rules, filing requirements, and benefits of the main type of business entities: sole proprietorship, LLC, Partnership, S-Corporation, and C-Corporation... For sole proprietors, there is not an employer paying a portion of these payroll taxes (Medicare, social security) on their behalf... 3% self-employment tax (which covers Medicare & Social Security) on their full share of the partnership’s net income. By converting an LLC to an S-Corp and paying an employee-owner a reasonable salary, the S-Corp can deduct the employer portion of Medicare & Social Security taxes...

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: August 3, 2018· Production adjustments, trade developments and rumors from a Facebook post all had an important role in this week’s trade. At the close we saw corn up 8, November beans 19 higher, with September wheat up 28. · The debate over yield outlook is starting to pick up in intensity ahead of next Friday’s USDA updated supply and demand outlook. While many groups were talking privately of a 180+ yield outlook in early July the limited rainfall throughout the month and rapid maturity has brought many estimates back down to earth... · In the age of social media it is becoming increasingly important to have more than one source when making trading decisions—something some wheat traders may have found out the hard way this week...

    EU's Call for Proposals: Food Systems Africa

    Proposals shall assess and deliver better nutrition performance of African farming systems, strengthening the agro-biodiversity (and integrated aquaculture systems) and food diversity.

Food supply chains (conventional and organic) for both local urban markets and high value global markets shall be targeted. Proposals need to ensure the commitment and participation of a variety of partners established in the EU and in Africa, and shall establish relevant links with other projects involved in the EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security & Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA). Proposals should include a task to cluster with other projects involved in the EU-Africa R&I Partnership on FNSSA and with the cooperation platform established under SFS-33-2018.
