What Makes Your Finances Different?

Added Responsibility

Business Operations

Regardless of industry, business owners face a set of entwined financial responsibilities.

Financial factors in business operations include overhead, transportation, inventory, marketing, production, administration, employees, etc.

Every business manages the impact of these elements differently.

Family

Business owners are not exempt from the responsibilities of providing for their families.

Intertwined with the business is the need to provide for personal cost of living, planning for children’s education, and developing a retirement plan for yourself.

Employees

Business owners are responsible for developing voluntary benefits to employees. You know your company has a lot to offer employees. Your benefit package is a big part of your offer and your culture, affecting everything from job performance to wellness and quality of life. Competitive compensation, retirement benefit packages and health insurance are a few retention strategies worth considering.

CPAs & Financial Professionals build trusted relationships step-by-step

Businesses, regardless of the industry, have similarities.

While many financial firms focus on planning around these similarities, our planning branches outward to account for the differences between businesses and business owners.

At BWS, we listen to the financial “Why” of the business. Why do you want to own a business? Lifestyle, growth potential, goals. These answers drive financial decision-making.

From there, we learn about the “When” of the business. It’s vital to know how long you want to operate the business. Do you want to sell the business or pass it on to a family member, friend, or partner? A business owner’s “When” significantly impacts strategy development.

Only after understanding the “Why” and the “When” can we effectively implement the “How.” A strategic implementation may include the following:

  • Entity selection or diversification.
  • Catastrophic event planning.
  • Business pre-sale strategies.
  • Establishment of lifetime income.

This handful of options is just the tip of the iceberg regarding strategic wealth management for business owners.

As a business owner, our team comes to know you. You, your family, and your business are central throughout the process.

Family

Retirement & Financial Planning for Generations

The families of business owners understand the sacrifices required to build a successful company; family support is often paramount and synonymous with success.

It’s no different for our Baker Wealth Strategies families.

Financial preparedness is directly tied to the business, whether planning for the kids’ education, a major purchase, or looking forward to retirement.

There are beneficial tax codes designed to support businesses and, with the proper application, provide effective family financial strategies not available to non-business owners.

The interwoven nature between business and personal finance can be intimidating, however effectively implemented techniques can produce lifelong income, stability, and opportunities for the whole family.

Employees

Benefits Packages

Regardless of the company’s number of workers, the cost of time and training that goes into good employees is critical to the business’s overall success.

When an employee actively contributes to the company’s revenue stream, retention of that employee increases in importance. Whether through their unique knowledge, work ethic, or collaborative spirit, ensuring their continued employment is essential.

Offering benefit packages is a long-term value-added expression of appreciation toward employees.

With options for all sizes of businesses, from a single proprietor to hundreds of employees, benefits packages lay the groundwork for personal and employee retirements while building a solid foundation for continuity and stability in a company’s workforce.
