  • Putting All the Ducks in a Row: Advising Clients on Selling a Business

    The commercial landscape is on the cusp of a seismic generational shift, with about two-thirds of U.S. businesses expected to change hands within the next decade. As baby-boomer entrepreneurs move toward retirement, many will look to transfer both their ownership interests and management roles in their companies.
  • IRC 355: Understanding the Basics of a Tax-Free Spin-off

    One disadvantage of forming a Subchapter C corporation is the unfortunate reality of “double taxation.” The first level of taxation occurs when the business pays corporate income taxes on its profits. The second level occurs when the previously taxed profits are distributed to shareholders as dividends. Even if the corporation does not have sufficient cash flow and decides to distribute property that has appreciated in value to its shareholders, the tax is typically unavoidable.
  • Important Phrases to Listen for during Preliminary M&A Conversations

    When two interested CPA firms delve into serious conversations about merging or combining, they often spend a lot of time negotiating the economics of a transaction, the compatibility of financial policies, and the parameters of control and authority. While those topics are very important, the equally important integration, transition, and service platform unfortunately are poorly addressed ahead of closing.
