Tax 

As private businesses become larger and more complex and successful, managing their tax exposures invariably emerges as an important concern.

Effective tax planning is about more than minimising or deferring tax obligations. Financing issues, succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, creditor proofing, strategy development and expansion into new markets are among the concerns that should be reflected in tax planning. Tax considerations can make or break business investment decisions.

 

In short, tax considerations can affect the value of a business and the extent to which that value can be realised for the benefit of the business owners.

 

Smart companies don’t entrust their tax affairs to enthusiastic amateurs or to advisers who inhabit the badlands of tax law.
