STRATEGIC FINANCIAL PLANNING

“It’s not what you make, it’s what you get to keep!”

The essence of sound strategic financial planning is finding the best method to capture and preserve all possible gains that your investments can make.

Tax losses are a big part of what we protect against. But they are in no way the whole story.

Special strategies exist to facilitate:

Special Needs Planning

Long-Term Care and Medi-Cal services planning
For those who have not prepared to bear the burden of a long-term care event, it is this very kind of life event that can draw down any existing retirement resources to practically nil within a short time. Learn about strategies to protect your retirement assets from the high-cost of Long-Term Care needs, and/or you may qualify for public assistance without the need to impoverish your estate.

Estate planning
To ensure that the ravages of the probate process don’t decimate the value of an estate passing to the next generation.

Capital Gains Tax planning
Special strategies to defer gains made in the sale of highly appreciated assets, such as real estate holdings that need to be liquidated without losing ⅓ of your gains. This can allow the saved taxes to be reinvested and further compounded, thereby getting out of “The 1031 Exchange” trap.

Using maximum capability to save for the owners’ and officers’ retirement and maximize the tax benefits of owning a business.

They’re the last to get paid and if there are profits to be taken, often they are simply reinvested back into the business. In many such cases the only real hope for retirement may be in the value of business they have built. Yet, without proper.

Business Succession Planning
The sale of a business has the potential to become an almost catastrophic tax event as well.
