Corporate Tax Checkups
From time to time, it is useful to take a fresh look at a corporate structure to determine whether every available tax-planning opportunity has been employed. This exercise is worthwhile every few years because circumstances and laws change, yielding new opportunities.
When approaching this kind of engagement, we
- meet with representatives of the corporation, or the corporation's accountants, to review the group's overall structure, financial statements, and tax returns;
- prepare a short report summarizing our tax-planning ideas;
- where warranted, prepare a detailed implementation memo to put our tax-planning ideas into effect; and
- monitor the structure for opportunities created by changes in tax laws or other circumstances.
