Just got approved for a transfer to a different office in a few months. When should I let my current team members know of my move? I assume I will get new client engagements at the new office.

Sooner rather than later - always better to be the one telling your team than them finding out via other channels

Can you give more info about the path you took to get the office transfer approved? I'm highly motivated to make this happen but not sure where to start

How'd you get your transfer approved without your team knowing ??

PwC 1 discuss it with your coach first and ask if they can reach out to HR for current needs in the office and sub group you would like go to. Once coach and HR know they will ask you to speak with your RP most likely to be certain that you want to go that route before they start spinning the wheels. Note: I heard that most markets in the US have put a hold on transfer (project FIT?) but that could be confined to tax. Heard it from my Tax partner Tuesday.

How far out are you? And how is the transition? I want to transfer in late spring but don't want to bring it up too early.

What is project fit?

How do you handle when someone briefs your direct report into a new project without talking to you? Person who did it is senior to me but we have the same manager so we are sort of peers. The project makes sense for my direct report but I feel undermined and disrespected for not being consulted. Am I being too sensitive? I don’t want to seem petty but I would never bypass one of my peers like this unless something was time sensitive - even then, I’d send a courtesy note as a heads up.

Any advice?: Just finished long term W2 freelance role (since Jan) + I also have a small 1099 side project that‘ll be finishing up in 2ish wks. If we are talking >10k on 1099 (i.e. not enough to justify filing for SCorp) + <160-200k on W2 — is there any real tax advantage of opening LLC vs paying me directly outside of the “protects personal assets if ever sued”, etc? Technically I *could* open LLC quickly b4 invoicing- but dunno if worth $ to do so for such small amount of 1099 coming in?
