What does a 409A Valuation Mean?
A 409A Valuation is a formal report that sets the current value of your company's common stock and the strike price to exercise an option to purchase that stock.
Typically a company hires a professional appraiser to prepare the report since stock options set at a strike price below the current value of the common stock can result in large tax penalties to the option recipients.
Section 409A of the U.S. tax law requires that the strike price (the set future price per share to exercise a stock option) not be lower than the current real value of a share of the company's stock on the day the stock option is issued (the "grant date").

What is a Sole Proprietorship?
A sole proprietorship is a business with a single owner. It is the dream for many people.

Preferred dividends are the dividends that are accrued paid on a company’s preferred stock. Any time a company pays dividends, preferred shareholders have priority over common shareholders, which means dividends must always be paid to preferred shareholders before they are paid to common shareholders. If the company is unable to pay all the dividends, then claims to any preferred dividends will take precedence over claims to dividends on common shares.
Dividends are payments that a company distributes to its shareholders. Unlike the interest paid on bonds, dividend payments are not mandatory. Many startups do not pay dividends because they want to use any available money to grow the business instead.

What is a Stock Warrant?
A stock warrant gives holders the option to buy company stock at a fixed price, the exercise price, until the expiration date and receive newly issued stock from the company. A stock warrant is similar to its better-known cousin, the stock option. For starters, recall that a stock option is a contract between two parties and gives the stockholder the right to buy or sell stocks at a certain price and on a certain date.
Similarly, a stock warrant holder also has the right, to buy a specific number of shares of stock that will be created in the future, upon exercising the warrant, called “underlying” stock. That transaction is called “exercising” the option, and it must take place before a specific date and at a predetermined price. Warrants are not compensatory tools, but rather used simply to increase a company’s capital and sweeten the deal for potential investors. The underly
