Directed by Arthur Egeli (Murder on the Cape) and starring  Shaun Parkes (Lost in Space, The Mummy Returns), John Hensley (How To Get Away With Murder, Nip-Tuck), Liza Weil (Gilmore Girls, How To Get Away With Murder), Nick Moran (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Nija Okoro (Insecure, The Deuce), this stunning and timely film not only celebrates the career of one of the most celebrated stage actors of the 1920s, but also the history of African-American excellence in theatre.

Synopsis

Based on a true story, Charles S. Gilpin (Shaun Parkes) was the first African-American dramatic star in a lead role in a stage play during a time where roles of color were previously played by white men in blackface. As Gilpin rose to fame and recognition, tensions were high between him and playwright Eugene O’Neill (John Hensley), which ultimately lead to parting ways, though Gilpin’s name is etched in Broadway history forever.

“I grew up learning to revere and honor Eugene O’Neill as the father of American Theater – until I learned about Charles Gilpin,” says director, Arthur Egeli. “The talent of Charles Gilpin made Eugene O’Neill a household name. Why have we forgotten him?”

The Black Emperor of Broadway shines a light on the relatively unknown story of Gilpin, an actor who should be celebrated for breaking down racial barriers on the stage,” says Vision Films CEO/ Managing Director, Lise Romanoff. “This film puts the man who changed Broadway history into the spotlight he deserves.”

FMS Solutions CFO Shares What Independent Grocers Need to Know for 2021 Tax Planning

Although cash flow may appear to be growing, expenditures will also be extended for future government liabilities.

Although cash flow may appear to be growing, expenditures will also be extended for future government liabilities.

Press Release updated: Oct 20, 2020 08:10 EDT


The CFO of FMS Solutions, Tatyana Levy, shares three key points that business owners should plan for when it comes to their tax plan in the near future. COVID-19 has created a unique environment for businesses across the board. As the world looks forward to a vaccine and a return to some semblance of normal, many retailers are conscious that the post-COVID way of life is coming to an end. Planning needs to extend beyond just labor supply, inventory, and pay; cash flow is also critical. 

There are three main points to plan for, as cash may appear to be growing during this time, but outflows will be extended for future government liabilities.

Point 1: The deferral of FICA, by presidential order (IRC §7508A).

“If you deferred your employer portion of FICA for the period September 1st through December 31st, you have pushed your cash payment forward into the future,” says Levy. “However, unless the government forgives this payment, you will have to make the 2020 deferred payments and typical future FICA payment. It would help if you kept this in mind when looking at your future cash needs. It is not an extra amount with the deferral, so don’t lose sight of your committed cash in your bank account.”

Point 2: Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness. 

The expenses that were paid for using the PPP loan, if forgiven, will not be tax-deductible. 

According to Levy, this means if one receives a $1,000,000 loan forgiveness to apply against expenses, they have essentially created $1,000,000 in taxable income. The expenses are not deductible and will add to your bottom line. Based on this example, If one has a 20% tax rate, they will have a $200,000 tax liability.

Because most business owners pay estimated taxes based on the prior year, it provides a good reference point to plan for the additional tax expense next year.  

Point 3: Estimating tax payments and potential cash expenditures. 

Most people were likely to pay estimates in 2020. Typically, taxes come out plus or minus against the four quarters of estimated tax payments. With increased sales and profits come increased taxes. It would be best if you kept this in mind when looking at your cash requirements in 2021.

Begin planning your cash expenditures to ensure having the appropriate cash on hand to pay income taxes, and FICA delayed payments without impacting operating decisions in 2021. Levy also advises considering reaching out to a tax professional right away to ensure time to enact a plan to reduce income taxes.

Tatyana Levy is the CFO for FMS Solutions Holdings LLC. Levy is a CPA licensed in Pennsylvania and is a graduate of Temple University Fox School of business. Her background includes both private equity and public accounting with HIG Capital and Deloitte, respectively.

Innovative Battery Recycling Process by TES ‘Highly Commended’ by Reuters Responsible Business Awards 2020

TES’ Battery Recycling Process has been recognised in the Sustainability Innovation Award category

TES’ Battery Recycling Process has been recognised in the Sustainability Innovation Award category

Press Release updated: Oct 20, 2020 20:05 +08


The world’s resources are finite, and businesses must close the loop on existing take-make-dispose models that are placing unsustainable levels of pressure on our planet. Lithium batteries present one such challenge.

There has been an exponential increase in demand for these batteries, driven by their compatibility with smartphones, laptops, and other applications like IoT devices and electric vehicles.

However, vital components within Lithium batteries, such as Lithium itself and Cobalt, are currently widely mined as virgin materials to satisfy demand. Some forecasts predict these elements will be completely exhausted within 100 years.

TES’ innovative battery recycling process closes that loop by offering the best recovery and purity rates in the industry. This enables materials such as Lithium and Cobalt to be extracted and then reused in the forward manufacturing supply chain.

TES is proud to announce that our process was recently recognised by the Reuters Responsible Business Awards 2020’s Sustainability Innovation Award.

According to Reuters, this award recognises companies that have developed an innovation in a sustainability initiative enabled by technology. TES stood above the formidable competition in the category from UPS, Kraft Heinz, Maersk and Formula 1. Winners in other categories included Coca Cola, Goldman Sachs, Dow, and Verizon, to name a few.

“The judges recognised TES’ great potential to deliver clear and measurable benefits that will grow with the network and infrastructure at an increased scale.” – Reuters Responsible Business Awards 2020

“TES has always set high standards in our commitment to sustainability and will continue to invest in innovative technology like battery recycling to ensure we are doing our part in the circular economy. We fundamentally believe that solving these kinds of challenges can be good for the planet and business at the same time.” – Eric Ingebretsen, TES Chief Commercial Officer (CCO)

TES’ battery recycling facilities in Singapore and France have the capacity to handle 15 tonnes of Lithium batteries each day, the equivalent of 300,000 smartphone batteries. Matched with a recovery rate exceeding 95% in extracting elements of Lithium and Cobalt to 99% purity levels, the process offers a ready-made solution for manufacturers, governments, and others looking to close the loop in their battery streams.
