Which California businesses can reopen this week?

Gov. Gavin Newsom has announced that some stay-at-home rules will be modestly eased later this week.

He said details would be provided later in the week, but here are some highlights:

Businesses that can open

Bookstores, music stores, toy stores, florists, sporting goods retailers, clothing stores and others can reopen for pickup as early as Friday. Additional businesses could be named later this week, also with curbside pickup.

Right now, only essential businesses such as grocery stores, drug stores, medical offices, gas stations and auto repair are open, with social distancing. Factories that supply those businesses would also be allowed to resume.

Businesses that can’t

Offices, shopping malls, and seated dining at restaurants are still ordered shut. Personal grooming businesses, entertainment venues, live concerts and sports are also not included in the first phase of Newsom’s reopening plan.

Local controls

There will be more decision-making at the local level, allowing

White House adviser will not rule out more money for states, small businesses

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday he would not rule out anything in a new relief bill to ease the “tremendous hardships” of the coronavirus outbreak, including more money for state and local governments and small businesses.

More than 30 million Americans have joined the unemployment benefit rolls over the past six weeks and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are discussing a fourth coronavirus relief bill.

Democrats are pushing for additional aid to help cities and states cope with lost revenue from a shut-down economy and some governors have warned of massive layoffs if they fail to get it.

Some advisers to Republican President Donald Trump have said the need for another stimulus bill is not yet clear. But Kudlow said “there may well be additional legislation” as officials study how the billions included in the last bill take effect.

“We know the economy is

Types of Businesses and Forms of Business Organizations

A business entity is an organization that uses economic resources to provide goods or services to customers in exchange for money or other goods and services.

Business organizations come in different types and in different forms of ownership.

3 Types of Business

There are three major types of businesses:

1. Service Business

A service type of business provides intangible products (products with no physical form). Service type firms offer professional skills, expertise, advice, and other similar products.

Examples of service businesses are: salons, repair shops, schools, banks, accounting firms, and law firms.

2. Merchandising Business

This type of business buys products at wholesale price and sells the same at retail price. They are known as “buy and sell” businesses. They make profit by selling the products at prices higher than their purchase costs.

A merchandising business sells a product without changing its form. Examples are: grocery stores, convenience stores,

COVID-19: Finance professionals worry over impact of the pandemic on businesses

Finance professionals working in organizations, large and small in the public and private sectors, have expressed deep concerns about the impact of Covid-19 on people, productivity and cashflow of businesses.

The dreaded disease which the World Health Organisation has described as a global health emergency, is taking toll on families and their businesses, leading to pay cuts and posing threat to job security.

A  new global research conducted by Association Of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) among 10,000 finance professionals, including an expert panel of 227 in Nigeria turned out startling revelations.

Respondents in Nigeria say the most severe impact of the virus is employee productivity being negatively affected, with 55 percent saying this was the case, followed by cash flow problems hitting business viability.

33 percent of the respondents, according to the research, stated that the virus is really an impact while  a third of the respondents explained they were

Asides access to finance, political instability is perhaps the biggest constraint facing Nigerian tech businesses

Businesses do not exist in vacuums and before taking a leap into the world of entrepreneurship, there is a need for a socially, ethically, and politically stable environment. However, in Nigeria, it is quite the opposite and political instability seems to be a long-standing problem.

Over the years, assessments have highlighted the impacts of various regional conflicts on the business climate in the country and a report from Washington-based non-profit organisations, ONE Campaign and Center for Global Development, show that Nigeria’s tech sector is even more affected by this set of problems.

From the survey carried out by the two organisations, Nigerian tech businesses are constrained by a number of factors. The major ones include a reliable source of electricity, access to finance, corruption, and political instability. Though minor, labour regulations, taxes, courts, and tax administration are the other constraints cited.
