Learn the tax aspects that really matter to your business and lay out your tax blueprint! Learn to utilize existing credits and accelerate deductions in order to obtain the best tax strategy.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Standard financial statements are not designed to convey the true value of a business; they are designed to comply with generally accepted accounting practices and to minimize taxes in privately held companies. When these documents are used to attract investors/acquirers, or support loan applications, they frequently understate the value of a business. This program will dramatically improve your chances of obtaining the financing needed to grow a business, maximize the selling price of your business, or look into acquiring another business.
