Billy McFarland the Great Founder of Magnises

William (Billy) McFarland is an American technical entrepreneur, he was born on December 11th, 1991 in New York, but raised in Short Hills, New Jersey. He is the founder and CEO of both Magnises (2013) and Spling (2010). McFarland attended college for a brief time at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania to study computer engineering, and decided it wasn’t for him.

That is when he made his first company (Spling). Even as a child he was exceptionally gifted with business, he would sneak phones into high school to handle work related business.

Both companies are doing exceedingly well, especially Magnises, which is a thin metal black card designed specifically for the millennial generation. According to Crunchbase, Billy McFarland wanted to make something that was appealing to the younger crowd, so it includes an application on smartphone devices.

Whats so great about this card? It gives exclusive perks to members. Some of those perks include but are not limited to; party invitations, private concerts, discounts at restaurants, and special reservations for luxurious getaways. Currently there are over 6,000 members and counting, all clients pay an annual fee of $250 (not a bad price for all those benifits).

At just 23 years old he has raised 3 million in funding, just from one of his companies. Currently Magnises is only available in New York and Washington DC, but Billy McFarland plans to expand far and wide. He believes this can be the bridge that brings together people who work in different fields of work on a social, and professional level.

Leaps and Bounds: The OSI Group

It speaks tremendous volumes for a food company to have not only taken 2016’s prestigious Globe of Honour Award bestowed upon them by the British Safety Council, but to have received this same award in 2013 and also 2015. The American held OSI Group has completed that feat. The Globe of Honour Award is given to companies who have demonstrated excellence in environmental management, something which OSI Food Solutions UK has shown time and again.

To first even be allowed to compete for this award, a company must achieve the maximum of five stars in a predetermined audit scheme time period given by the British Safety Council. Along with gaining these five stars, the company must also prove their excellence in their environmental management throughout their entire business, bottom to top, to an independent panel of experts. This is most definitely an award of the highest honor.

The OSI Group has not only continued to show their excellence in front of the British Safety Council, they have made a massive leap onto 2016’s Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies in the World list. After not having previously appeared on said list, they make an impressive showing, coming in at number 66. It certainly helps when OSI can boast over 60 locations in 16 different countries.

Not willing to rest on their laurels, the OSI Group made a few significant purchases in 2016. First up was their purchase of a Tyson Foods plant in Chicago, which happens to be located close to other OSI Chicago facilities. The purchase of Tyson allows OSI the infrastructure needed to support their continued business growth. Shortly after this purchase, OSI obtained Baho Food in attempt to create an even broader presence in Europe. Baho Food is known for manufacturing deli meats, convenience food and snacks. The five companies Baho held and now carry the OSI logo serve customers in 18 different countries. Finally and most recently, OSI has acquired Flagship Europe from the Aurora, Colorado-based Flagship Food Group. With this purchase, the OSI Group continues to plant a strong foothold in the European Food market.

A company on the rise, one striving for continued excellence, the OSI Group is ready to jump into 2017. Click here to learn more about OSI Group.

Everybody needs a little NTC

National Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC) is a service that allows you to ensure that your titles are without defect. This is crucial should you be looking to buy a home with a mortgage – given that your mortgage lender may have stipulations against wording, failure to include signatures, previous liens on the property (which can be a huge problem in and of itself) or any failure to record or file real estate procedures. Title defects became a major issue in the real estate market in June 2014, when NTC, National Title Clearing Inc, responded to distress calls where some people felt as if there were wrongful foreclosures. Others felt they contributed to stagnation, a prolonged period with little or no progress. NTC responded to this with the key to reducing the risk of buyback or inability to foreclosure, while ensuring a clear title endowment. Title effects commonly occur when someone claims a property that actually isn’t theirs, although there are a few factors that could make the title invalid such as simple issues with wording within the document that fails to comply with the real estate standards for the area and the failure to follow procedures when recording real estate documents. Also, if the signature of a party was failed to be included and that the title needs to be free of encumbrances to be marketable.

 

NTC recently released the ability to have property reports via online ordering. NTC executives took steps to make the process of securing property reports simple. The company’s goal is to provide simple, quick, reliable, step by step process of obtaining property reports. Their services are based on a trusted research conducted from real land records and are available for any property nationwide. NTC also obtains data from other sources during this process, but more importantly the countries which includes human verification and automation. This particular practice gives NTC the capability to provide several of the top lenders in the US, which is of course under extremely heavily analyzed regulations to conform. Officials say their process accurately produces results for what the report was intended. They recognize the financial impact that reports can cause if a client is ordering an excessive amount of fields that may result to be useless in the end which is why the company focuses on fully understanding what the client would like to see for end results. Once that information has been gathered, they pursue properties that fit the data that was included.

 

National Title Clearing, Inc. was founded in 1991, is privately owned based in Palm Harbor, Florida. NTC provides services to investors including eight of the US’s top residential mortgage services. The company also provides leading research and document-processing and is recognized for achieving the most high-level of accuracy and premium quality. NTC assists the mortgage banking industry while saving the nation’s land reports and delivers protection to homeowners as well. NTC’s expansion is linked to their contribution to their industry and has won the “higher power” award for the second year in a row in 2013 for “putting Americans back to work.”

How to Get the Most Out of Your Auto Loan

There are certain situations where it makes more sense to refinance your auto loan than to continue paying down your current one.

If you happen to notice that the interest rates have dropped since you purchased your new vehicle, you may be able to save some money by refinancing your loan. Even just a percentage point can make a very big difference in the life of a loan! Interest rates are also affected by your credit. When you pay off debt, you raise your credit score! When this happens, you may be able to get an even better interest rate for your vehicle! Even just a few months of on-time payments can lower your rates.

 

Sometimes, you end up with a high interest rate even after doing everything right. You have a high credit score, your credit history is sparkling, but for some reason you just couldn’t get a low interest rate when buying your dream car. When you are paying extra on an interest rate, that extra profit is going to the dealership. In this case, it would also make the most sense to refinance and save you some extra cash each month!

Lawyer Geoffrey Cone’s feature on Foreign Trusts-New Zealand Herald Business News

 

The OECD Agreement on information exchange on taxation; a gold standard rate for tax transparency conforms to the international information exchange, to implement domestic tax laws. New Zealand is a significant pioneer on the OECD’s white list for implementing the international tax standard. The country has a reputation for demonstrated exceptional leadership regarding tax transparency, by handling foreign trusts to assist other governments that ask for relevant information.

 

Michael Cullen introduced new Zealand Tax rules in 2006. Under the NZ government, a local trustee of a foreign trust is obligated to present a foreign trust form (IR607) by the IRD and to maintain financial records for tax purposes. The required details include the recipient’s name and address, the trust agreement, settlements facts and distributions particulars of the trust’s assets/liabilities, and the trustee’s money. If the client runs a business, the trustee should maintain accounting systems, and records in English. Contrary to do so may attract heavy fines. These laws were improved by the passing of the world money laundering standard laws in 2011.

 

New Zealand has double tax contracts intended to cut tax impediments to cross-border trade and investments, and also to prevent fraud. The country has more than 20 tax information exchange agreements with foreign countries. Foreign trusts are mostly used for asset succession, protection, and planning. New Zealand is renowned globally as a secure, high-quality government with revered legal structures. Their respected foreign trusts professionals help to improve the country’s status in the OECD, and the world’s taxation experts. She also competes with tax transparent governments such as the U.S, Singapore, and Britain because they have parallel taxes principles concerning foreign trusts.

Marc Sparks And The Starting A Business Process

 When it comes to starting a business, it is important for people to be able to follow some steps in order to insure the success of a business. One of the most important aspects of business success begins with a business model. Also, one needs some very important resources.

While a lot of people try to start a business, there are very few that actually succeed and become something. Among these people that have succeeded in their business is Marc Sparks. He has started a series of businesses and has figured out what it really takes in order to succeed in starting a business.

One thing that Marc Sparks says is important to the success of the business is a work environment. A business owner has to work in an environment that is collaborative, conducive and productive. Therefore, he has to make sure that he is surrounded by individuals that are oriented towards business goals and success.

He also has to be surrounded by individuals that would be available to help him succeed at what he is doing. This means being away from all distractions and other factors that could take him away from what he is doing.

According to Timber Creek Capital, One of the things that Marc Sparks advises is to not cut corners when it comes to the environment. He does list extreme examples of what he is talking about. One example that he has talked about was sitting in an office which has blacked out windows in a sketchy neighborhood.

Another thing he talked about is working in a retail space surrounded by successful or goal oriented people. His point is that the latter is more productive than the former in many cases. One thing that people can’t allow is distractions from the goal. This is one of the reasons that he recommends people find a space that is business oriented.
