    Business Tax

    Tax laws and regulations change constantly and business owners and corporate CFOs do not always have the time to keep up with all the new tax legislation. The experienced tax CPAs at Frazier & Deeter provide sophisticated and timely tax advice to help you minimize taxes while adhering to regulations.

    Many of our tax professionals worked with national CPA firms before joining Frazier & Deeter and they have extensive experience in corporate and individual tax issues. Our tax clients include public, private and nonprofit organizations of all sizes operating across industries. We have specialists in areas like nonprofit and tax implications of multi-national operations.

    Expertise for Business Owners

    We assist business owners in determining how to structure their business, such as whether they should become an S corporation, a C corporation, or an LLC. Choosing the legal form for operating a business dramatically impacts after-tax cash flow available to owners, the deductibility of employer fringe benefits, personal liability and more. Some of the crucial items to consider when starting a business include the company’s overall method of accounting, its tax year-end, inventory valuation method and debt versus equity capitalization.

    A close relationship is maintained with a company’s owner to ensure that overall business strategies complement their individual tax situation. Because we know that each client has different needs and goals, we meet with them periodically to discuss their individual and business related issues.
