Is he giving the money to you? Then it's a gift, pay your taxes as appropriate. Desposit the whole thing and don't try to play the system.
If you're planning on being a business, maybe (just maybe) you should get your financial advice from your duly contracted accountant/financial manager, not the assembled throbbing pulsing brain of JI?
I think the best way to describe it would be a loan that I intend to pay back in full.
Sent an E-mail to my accountant yesterday and have not heard back yet (impatient), other then that I am the financial manager.
