Benefits of Outsourcing Your Business Taxes

smiling coworkers during meetingMany small business owners wear many hats in their company and enjoy the feeling of self-reliance. However, the more tasks you have dividing your attention, the harder it is to focus on any one thing. When it comes to tax filing, this can lead to late filing, missed opportunities, and unintentional errors. It also takes valuable time away from other areas of your business that need you.

We stay on top of changing tax laws to help you maintain compliance whenever you file, and always look for deductions, credits, and other saving opportunities you may qualify for. When you combine tax preparation with our tax planning and accounting services, your filing will be more efficient and you'll be able to take advantage of even greater savings.

What's the Difference Between Quarterly and Annual Tax Filing?

Quarterly Tax Filing - If you intend to file as a sole proprietor, a partnership, S corporation shareholder, or a self-employed individual, you're required to file and pay your taxes quarterly if you owe taxes of $1,000 or more.

Businesses that file as a corporation generally need to make estimated tax payments if they expect to owe $500 or more in tax for the year. This system can actually work out well for many businesses as they make smaller payments over time. The trade-off is having to spend more time completing and filing tax forms, but the team at Ray & Gregory, PC. can help you simplify this process and stay compliant.

Annual Tax Filing - All businesses must complete tax filing for the previous year at the annual deadline (typically in April), including those that file quarterly. If you file quarterly, this is when you calculate your full tax liability for the year, compare it to your earlier payments, and balance the difference.

What is Tax Planning?

hand pointing at notepad that reads tax planningMost people only think of taxes when filing season comes around again. However, by that time, the only thing you can do about your taxes is tally up your income and what deductions you have already qualified for.

Tax planning takes a proactive approach to your taxes by examining your situation and applying strategies that will help you save in the long run. We evaluate your tax returns from previous years, determine what deductions you're able to claim, and study your future plans to see what other opportunities could be open to you. Each tax planning strategy our team develops is personalized to the client.

Who is Tax Planning For?

When working with a business, we look at your full accounting history to understand your expenses, processes, and how you function. We can find deductions in a variety of places, such as in large purchases or expansion, equipment that needs maintenance, and programs you participate in.

As an individual, tax planning can assist you in several aspects of your financial well-being, especially in planning for your future. Retirement planning and estate planning both impact and are impacted by your taxes, and understanding this beforehand can help you make informed decisions to protect what matters most to you.
