Tax reform impact on corporations

If changes to the new tax reform bill leave you concerned for the future, our Business Entity Analysis Model (“BEAM”) can help you be proactive! Here’s how:

Assess the impact.
You may be concerned of the tax reform impact on corporations. The smart thing to do is assess how the current legislation may impact your specific circumstances so that you can make good business decisions and identify planning opportunities.

Accelerate deductions.

Review accounting methods.
A rate reduction could transform your accounting methods changes into permanent benefits. Talk to us today to see which opportunities may exist for you to defer income and accelerate deductions.
