Business Succession
The two greatest threats that threaten your business today are not competition and the economy. The two greatest, imminent threats to businesses are 1) lack of succession planning and 2) the potential for estate taxes. Are your business clients and your business prepared? Don’t let a business or estate become assets of the government and taxing bodies! Dr. Basi will explain the need, requirements and the methods to transition a business from one owner to the next.

Learn to preserve your business for retirement or the next generation before it is too late. Let Dr. Bart Basi walk you through the steps to keep your business or estate from becoming assets of the government and taxing bodies!

 

Other Presentation Topics Include:

Business Valuation
Valuing a house is simple. Appraisers look at the size and condition of the houses around the subject house. In business, since each is unique, determining a value is a much more complex process. There is no “formula” or “multiple” that can be used to determine the value of a business. Conforming to IRS and state standards for valuation is critical. Dr. Basi will describe the basics of how valuations are done for a private company.

Tax Aspects of Closely-held and Family-Owned Businesses
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.

Corporation Structures
Learn about different entities and their specifics. There are over seventy different tax concepts available to businesses and not knowing and understanding them can cost you extra taxes.
