When are Certified Payroll Reports Due? If you are a contractor and have a contract that has either Davis Bacon or Prevailing Wage requirements, knowing the answer to this question can avoid potential reporting penalties and sanctions.
It is important to remember, when calculating the due date of either Prevailing Wage or Davis Bacon, that the due date is calculated on the pay date for a pay period and not the pay period itself.
In Nevada, Prevailing Wage certified payroll reports are due on the 15th of the following month. For example, the wages paid June 1-30, are due on the 15th of July.
Davis Bacon Reporting is due weekly and must be received within seven (7) days after the regular pay date for that pay period. The complete reporting requirements are available at Certified Payroll Reports
What about dual-funded projects? If a project has both Davis Bacon and Prevailing Wage requirements, the reporting requirements for Davis Bacon should be followed.

The State of Nevada Commerce Tax Report is due on August 15, 2017. This will be the second year that Nevada companies are required to file. The reports and tax payment are due 45 days after the close of the State’s fiscal year on June 30 and are based, in most cases, on gross revenue for July 1 through June 30. This tax is sometimes referred to as the gross margins tax.
A business whose gross revenue is less than $4,000,000 may file using the simplified reporting method. The instructions for completing this report were updated on 6/16/2017 and are available on the following link Nevada Commerce Tax Instructions.

Maintaining your books isn’t something you should do solely at tax-time. When organized and done correctly, it allow you less stress and anxiety and improves your ability to make business decisions and to focus on your business, not on your books!
Three reasons that you should maintain good books:
1. Less Stress and Anxiety
Think of it as getting in your car and driving with no direction. When your books are organized, you know where you are and can make clear decisions. How can you know where to go, if you don’t know where you are?
2. Audit Protection
Many different entities audit, from the IRS to Workman’s Comp Insurance audits. Having your books up-to-date and organized makes the audit process easier.
3. Corporate Veil
Maintaining a set of books for each company, including a separate bank account, substantiates the corporate veil. Corporations and LLCs are formed to protect assets, but are not effective if the corporate veil cannot be maintained.
