Business Taxes Made Easier

If you’re an owner of a small to mid-sized business, you have a lot on your plate:  legal, HR, insurance and more. Ease your mind about your business taxes so you can concentrate on your goals.

And we will talk about goals often. Are you in this game for money? To dictate your own schedule? To build a legacy? Or are you ready to get out of the game? Proper tax planning can help get you where you want to go, both personally and professionally.

Your Business Lifecycle

Whether you’re just starting out or looking to take your business to the next level, I can help:

Starting a new venture?

Let’s review the basics of formation, accounting and investing.

From here, we can identify and build your professional team. I spend at least 25% of my week networking, so I can refer attorneys, bankers, financial planners, and other professionals who are best suited to help you.

Looking to sustain or grow your business?

Let’s look at your quarterly financial statements to make revenue and expenditure decisions to help you meet your objectives.

Being proactive?

Let’s be proactive to ensure that your books are organized and compliant in the event that you need an audit or valuation for financing.

Are you aware of tax savvy retirement planning opportunities?

Let’s utilize one of the 36 different types of retirement plans as a tool to reduce the taxes for the entity and defer taxes for the individuals.

Exit strategy and consulting

Align your short-term and long-term visions for the business. Do you have an exit strategy? What does your business need to look like to receive the business valuation you desire?
