Estate and Succession Planning
Planning for the future is more complex for the small business owner. What happens to the company you have worked so diligently to build? What if your children do not wish to carry on the business? How do you ensure that the company will be left in good hands; and that you or your heirs will receive a fair value?

We can help you navigate this complex and sometimes emotional matter. We will work closely with you, your attorneys and other professionals to ensure that your goals are realized. Specifically:

  • We analyze and evaluate your business with the goal of implementing a financial course that is consistent with your future retirement goals or exit strategy.
  • In succession cases, we help structure a plan that suits your needs and desires, whether they be short or long term.

Tax Audit Representation
We have years of experience representing clients in tax audits. If you have ever been audited by the Internal Revenue Service, the Florida Department of Revenue, or any other state taxing authority, you know it can be difficult process.

Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone. We will prepare your case and represent you aggressively to the auditor, even if our firm did not file the returns in question.

We are able to work with the returns prepared by others and , in most cases, are successful in significantly reducing the tax liability originally claimed by the authorities.
