Start Up - New York
Thanks to governor Cuomo, as of January 1st, 2014, New York State has introduced a program offering tremendous tax benefits to startup companies.
To qualify, the business must be a completely new startup business in New York State, a business relocating to New York from another state that will result in new jobs, or an existing business seeking to expand. The program's main objective is to create an alliance between new businesses and academic institutions.
Qualifying businesses will be exempt from local and state taxes. In addition, the people employed by these companies will not have to pay local and state income taxes. In exchange, the company must support the institution’s “academic mission” by contributing to the campuses programs, research, internships, culture and curriculum.
If your business qualifies for Start Up New York, you are assigned a campus point person who will work with you to find out exactly how you and your business can aid in the success of the campus and it’s students. Businesses that qualify must be on or near the university or college they will work with.
The program is seeking businesses that fall under the broad category of “high-technology.” To find out if your business qualifies for Start Up New York, visit their website here.
