Wealth Management Starts Today

Tax Planning

Let’s have a conversation.

You: I have a CPA.

Me: That’s great! But do you know there is a difference between “tax planning” and “tax preparation”.

You: Huh?

Tax preparation: is the reactionary but legally required act of accounting and submission of your company’s annual revenue to determine the IRS’s portion of your profit. In preparation you are only documenting what happened in the past.

Tax Planning: is the proactive practice of designing and implementing a set of legal strategies, using the rules from the tax code, to arrange your affairs in a way to minimize tax. Planning is forward looking with the result of keeping more of your profit.

Note: The result of good tax planning is the reduction of what you send to the IRS during tax preparation, keeping more of your hard earned profit.

With less than 12% of business owners having completed and implemented a tax plan, the uniqueness of entrepreneurial wealth management often starts here. When it comes to wealth management for business owner’s, tax planning has a significant, semi-immediate (12 to 18 months) and residual (annual) increase in an entrepreneur’s income.

By starting with tax planning we begin to unlock a business owner’s financial potential without increasing sales, services and management workloads. Rather, working hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs we increase annual income for the purpose of savings, business succession, growth and retirement.
