Whereas tax advice is usually about doing things the right way, tax planning is about doing things in a better way. Naturally, ‘business always comes first’. However, if it is feasible to simultaneously turn tax into a value driver by reducing tax costs, tax management costs and/or tax cash flow costs, then it is certainly worth evaluating alternative business scenarios from a tax point of view.
We know from experience that tax solutions on their own are not sustainable in the long run should your business be constrained by certain limitations. We make a point of offering pragmatic solutions that are tailored to your business needs and not the other way around.
So we spend as much time as we need on getting to know you and your business needs, as well as your criteria for a feasible solution.
In the current fiscal climate, tax planning can be a delicate matter, especially if a business decision appears to be predominantly tax driven. As part of our ‘Finance for Business’ promise to clients, VMB pays special attention to the principle that any ‘tax solution’ must be a ‘business solution’ first. That way, you can be confident that the solutions we propose will be sustainable in the event of a tax audit.
