Closely Held and Family Businesses
We specialize in serving privately owned businesses. Such businesses have unique issues, such as ownership succession and buy-sell planning, income and estate tax planning, cash flow planning, and financial accounting support. We serve our clients by first understanding their goals and objectives, assessing their current circumstances, and then developing practical solutions to complex tax laws and accounting standards. We will work with you to help you successfully achieve your business and ownership goals.
Executives and Professionals
Our firm is well-positioned to meet the tax and accounting needs of executives and professionals. For executives, we have deep expertise in strategic planning for employee stock options, deferred compensation plans, and other types of executive compensation. Our planning considers not only the tax ramifications but also the overall financial effects of each type of compensation. Significantly, this planning also utilizes strategies for managing the alternative minimum tax. We also assist companies seeking to implement executive compensation programs.
As a professional, you need strong tax and accounting support to assist you in your day to day and long-term decisions. We meet those needs in a responsive, efficient, and forward-thinking manner. We provide QuickBooks and other accounting support and assurance services as needed, as well as tax compliance and planning.
High-Net Worth and High-Income Individuals
As a high-net worth individual, you seek not only tax minimization, but also to preserve your net worth through appropriate financial and estate planning strategies. Many times you will have philanthropic goals as well. Our extensive experience in these areas allows us to take a holistic approach in meeting all of these needs. Not only do we provide necessary compliance and planning services to you and your family, but also utilize competent outside advisors (such as legal counsel) where necessary. We also provide home office services (such as bill paying and periodic accounting services) as needed.
Taxes represent the greatest expense for a large number of individuals, and so high-income individuals have an overall need to minimize their current tax liability to the extent possible. We assist you in minimizing your current tax liabilities, while also evaluating their exposure to long-term income, estate, gift, and other taxes, and keeping you current with your tax filing obligations.
