Due Diligence Services for Accountants:
Due diligence is not only a legal requirement – it protects both buyers and sellers, as well as their financial portfolios. For buyers, our due diligence services start before the purchase process even begins. We vet potential acquisitions so that only suitable targets are presented to the buyer. We conduct thorough and minute investigations of financial reports, cash flow, business operations and tax strategy so that every potential problem is addressed before it has costly consequences to the buyer’s financial health.
For sellers, our due diligence service for on risk identification and management. We identify and address problems early to resolve problems with the lender. This prevents any unnecessary delays in closing, and also strengthens the buyer’s position in sale negotiations.
Strategic Tax Planning:
An effective tax strategy must be comprehensive, integrating solutions into all aspects of your business. It must also be dynamic. By assessing the changing assets and liabilities of your business, we can ensure that you continue to employ the tax strategy that is best for your business.
There are countless tax credits available to the businesses that know to access them. Our tax experts work with your business to find all applicable tax credits. Research and development is a costly area of business expense but can also be the subject of significant tax credits. Likewise, energy efficient solutions can both help the environment and access beneficial tax credits. In other circumstances, the cost of an asset can be shifted to decrease your overall tax liability. This is known as cost segregation: by shifting costs from a long-term asset to a short term asset, the costs of depreciation are accelerated, and your tax deductions upon that asset increase. These are just a few of the many ways in which strategic tax planning can help your clients’ businesses.
