Business Operations Planning

Without a doubt, the most important financial management tool for any business is the Operations Planning process.

This process encompasses goal-setting and impelmentation of a five year plan. Each year in the plan is mapped, and each month in the year is forecast to meet the goals. The forecasts are monitored against actual results, so the right decisions can be made without delay.

Miller • Newlin makes this seemingly-formidable task a breeze for management. Our operations budgeting methods are proven effective. The process is flexible and insightful for business managers. We do all the legwork, help you focus on your long-term goals, and interpret the monthly results.

This service doesn’t put you in the driver’s seat – you’re already there, but it is the radar that keeps you there.

Income Tax Planning

An offshoot of the massively complex U.S. income tax law is that no one’s tax is pre-determined. In this arena, form and timing are everything. The actual transactions you enter into during the course of a year could have many different tax consequences, depending on a variety of factors.

For example, the same transaction would be handled differently under the tax law depending on the responses to the following questions:

(i) Who, or which entities, are parties to the transaction?

(ii) Will the transaction’s effects be offset or be increased by other transactions in the same year?

(iii) How much of the transaction was completed this year? How many future periods will it take to complete?

(iv) What was the business (or investment) purpose of the transaction?

These are just a sampling of the factors that would affect the tax treatment of any transaction. Compound the single transaction with the many that are entered into during the year, and you can see quickly that income tax planning is an essential part of keeping your money.

The tax planning process allows you to see in clear and organized terms a forecast of your total tax picture well into the future, while using only acceptable alternatives. The presentation and analysis allows you to see the effects, while there is still time to make alterations. Allowing us to add strategies and change gears until the outcome fits like an old shoe.
