Business Start-Up and Reorganization

Our firm routinely advises clients on the tax consequences of using different legal entities or structures for new business or investment ventures.  For some clients, this is a simple and straightforward discussion of the basic tax characteristics of various entities.  For others, more complex tax considerations, such as the passive activity rules, tax credit eligibility and self-employment tax liability, can be planned for at the start-up phase, avoiding unwelcome tax surprises later. 

Our firm monitors new and anticipated changes to the tax laws to help our clients respond proactively to prospective changes.  We have experience with tax planning projects for domestic and foreign business entities, nonprofit organizations, wealthy families and investment funds.  As the tax law and our clients' business activities change, we are often able to provide advice on reorganizations or other planning ideas that can result in large tax savings.
