Like every business owner, you manage risk, investing time and resources for future growth and value creation. Some of these resources include your trusted advisors who help you navigate complex challenges, such as getting the best tax outcomes, and positioning you not only for growth now, but to someday get the most value from the sale of your interest in the business in a tax efficient way.
Brightworth helps you by understanding your ultimate goals for your business, family, philanthropy, and legacy. We then review options, create a clear strategy and plan to reach those goals, and partner with you over the long term in executing and monitoring the plan. Throughout this partnership, we can help you with a plan to get the best tax outcomes, one that considers everything, including future giving and estate and tax planning before and as you sell your business interests. This lets you focus on what you’re best at: successfully managing your business and personal life.

How much money will you leave on the table due to a forced sale, inadequate planning, or frustration?
