As any experienced businessperson knows, taxes play an important role in almost every area of business operations. Taxes can affect: formation (like the choice between an LLC and a corporation), operations (such as how many employees the company hires), compensation (such as decisions on salaries, bonuses, insurance benefits, retirement), transactions (like vendor contracts or asset purchases), and even capitalization (as in how to fund the business). If you do not have a strategy in place, doing your own taxes can be time consuming, overwhelming and difficult. Because of these far-reaching consequences, tax planning is important for businesses of any size, age, or industry. And it’s important to have a plan in place.
