HAMMOND, La. (AP) - A seminar on business incentives available to Louisiana companies will be offered April 8 at Southeastern Louisiana University.

The free program, presented by the Louisiana Small Business Development Center, will be held from 9 a.m.-noon at the offices of the St. Tammany Economic Development Foundation, 21489 Koop Drive, Mandeville.

The session is designed for small business owners, certified public accountants, bankers and potential business owners interested in learning how to take advantage of the state’s incentive programs.

Incentive programs offered by the state typically come in the form of sales and use tax rebates, tax credits and tax exemptions, says Sandy Summers, director of the small business center.

They are available to new and existing companies that are expanding and creating jobs.

“This program will provide a detailed overview that will include program rules and application processes for Enterprise Zone, Industrial Tax Exemption, Restoration Tax Abatement, Research and Development, Small Business Loan Guaranty, Technology Commercialization and Quality Jobs,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the business development center at Southeastern.

Managers of Louisiana Economic Development will work with each participant to answer questions, Summers said.

Pre-registration for the seminar is preferred.

More information is available by contacting the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at the university, 985-549-3831, or online at www.lsbdc.org.
