The end of the year is upon us and most business owners find this to be the busiest time of the year. Though many businesses in the final quarter of the year give much focus to the busy holiday season and getting all those year-end transactions posted, they should also begin to focus on preparing their books for the upcoming accounting and tax season by being proactive. If you choose not to be proactive then you are apt to find yourself faced with an unorganized, rushed accounting process. For this reason, the folks here at Tax Alternatives highly recommend that business owners take a more tax proactive approach to all their year end accounting and planning.
THE BENEFITS OF BEING TAX PROACTIVE
- Accurate Records – One of the greatest benefits of being proactive with your tax and accounting planning is the simple fact that you will ultimately have more accurate and precise accounting and tax records. If you choose to rush at the end of the year to organize your records and books you may very well end up forgetting about certain expenses, sources of revenue, donations and other important tax related information. When this happens, you find yourself faced with inaccurate financial statements, tax documents and accounting records which, over time, will be quite a challenge to reconcile and rectify.
- Cost Savings – When you choose to be tax proactive you end up saving a whole lot of money. When your year end accounting process is timely and organized, it can save you on tax preparation fees and expenses and will also contribute to a more accurate accounting of your taxes. When filing tax returns on time and correctly, you avoid fines, penalties and harm to your business reputation.
- Enhanced Business Credit – Most business owners are constantly looking to grow their businesses and certainly having a good business credit score and a clean reputation can help you to accomplish that. Investors, lenders, and any other parties interested in your business, will scrutinize your business reputation and credit. If you are not proactive in preparing your year-end books and tax filings, you could file inaccurate taxes and ultimately contribute to an understatement of your business financial performance. This, over time, can affect your credit score and ultimately your reputation.
