Business Services

These services are offered both on a personal business level as well as a corporate level.

Company and other Entity Formations

Key in any tax planning is the choice of business entity. This is true whether you are considering a medical practice, a manufacturing concern or a non profit entity. We can assist you with advising on the most appropriate entity both from a liability perspective and a tax perspective and can also form these entities for you.


If you decide on a not for profit entity we can assist you in the application process for non profit status on both a state and federal level.


Strategic Planning

A strategic business plan forms the basis of any business. In many cases we have the plan in our minds. When business begins to grow and you find more and more issues needing your attention you need to have a system of checks and balances in place.


A business that grows too fast without the necessary checks and balances such as; accounting systems, tax strategies, expense monitoring and cost cutting programs, revenue management procedures, debt compliance monitoring to mention a few is well on its way to failure. The analogy of towers that can fall over easily and pyramids don't because of the solid base goes a long way to depicting a rapidly growing business and its strategic plan. 


Make sure you have a strategic plan in place from which you can compile a company profile for financiers or lenders and also very importantly a starting point for business budgeting, proper accounting and optimal tax planning.


Call today for a discussion on what Strategic Planning involves and how we can assist you in formulating such a plan.

Estate Tax Planning Opportunity !

IRA to Roth IRA Conversions

TIPRA removed the income limit for high earners who want to convert their traditional Individual Retirement Account to a Roth IRA. While elimination of the $100,000 income limit to convert traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs under TIPRA doesn't start until 2010, maximizing that opportunity can begin in 2006 with maximizing contributions in 2006 and each year thereafter to a nondeductible IRA that can then be converted into a Roth in 2010.

Please note that converting from a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA is something which should be considered taking account all facts and circumstances. It is not a one size fits all and good for all situation. Call to discuss, 619.537.9174.
