  • How to Explain Business Structures to Clients

    The start to a meaningful conversation with clients about business structure entails understanding the nature of their business so you can assess the risk factors and potential liability that may impact the owners, professionals, employees, and customers. Of course, the subjects of tax, situs, goals, objectives, economics, and business structure cannot be overlooked, and must be factored into the analysis. It is always best to communicate and coordinate with the clients’ team of advisers to ensure a collaborative approach to the analysis of the appropriate alternatives.

As we shared our thoughts as to where the trouble is coming from these days, I thought that it made sense to share these observations from a highly specialized resource with the PICPA community.
