M&A, Reorg, & Legacy Planning Consulting
When it’s time for a major shift or exit, we should be your first call. We have helped guide numerous business owners through stock sales, asset sales, tax-free reorganizations, bringing in new investors, passing on your business to your children, etc. Careful attention needs to be paid to the valuation, structure, and timing of these events. Bringing us in early ensures we can help navigate you through the different options and intended tax consequences. There are a number of steps you can take early on in the process, both from a tax and operations standpoint.
We assist in determining the best way to structure the deal, allocate the purchase price, set target working capital and will guide you through the due diligence process. We work hand in hand with your business attorney to ensure nothing slips through the cracks. We always run a tax projection to calculate the net after-tax payout. This is also the time where we look at your overall tax plan and may recommend other tax savings strategies. It’s especially important to look at these items in a year where you will be in the top tax bracket.
If you are looking at passing down your business to the next generation, we aid in creating a plan that achieves your goals. If you will have a taxable estate, we work with the estate attorneys to help preserve as much wealth as possible through the use of trusts and other related organizations. We take a hands-on approach to come up with a plan that works from a cash-flow for the business and individual family members.
