One of the reasons why many people want to own a business is to save money on taxes which is what they look for when they are hiring CFO services. However, they need to ensure that they have the right financial and tax plans in place to achieve this.

Just by owning a corporation. It does not necessarily mean that an entrepreneur is paying the minimal amount of taxes that they should. They also need the right plans in place they need to hire the right CFO services.

Many entrepreneurs open the doors to their business. And make the assumption that they are already saving the most taxes that they can.

However, they can apply a quick test. In order to ensure they are most likely getting an efficient tax plan. They should look at how they are drying money from their corporation.

If a business owner is drying 100% salary from their business. Or if they are drying 100% dividends. It is likely that they do not have an efficient tax plan set up.

The reason why, is because an efficient tax strategy. Typically requires a combination of drawing salary and dividends.

However, what that mix is will depend on the entrepreneurs circumstances. And is best determined by their accountant in a financial and tax plan that they create with the business owner.

If the financial plan is not something that the entrepreneur can live off of. Then the entire financial and tax plan will not work.

If business owners are simply using last year’s financial plan for their tax planning in the next year. It is likely to happen, is it is not going to be the most effective tax strategy.

Each will result in the entrepreneur paying more in taxes. And not realizing that until they reached the end of their year.

Therefore, business owners need to ensure that not only do they have a tax and financial plan in their business. But that they are updating it each year. To ensure that they are consistently paying less tax in their business every single year.
