At Ahearn Jasco, we believe our clients can benefit not just from our knowledge, but from our wisdom. This is why we offer consulting services to businesses and individuals, providing comprehensive strategies for their long-term success. The main areas of consulting services we provide include:
Business & Management Consulting
Our firm can provide comprehensive, flexible strategies that address the issues affecting your business and help you chart a path forward to success. In addition to acting as a sounding board for management, we can help your business identify areas negatively impacting profitability and growth and develop solutions that are practical and technically sound.
Purchase or Sale of a Business
The acquisition or sale of a business includes many critical steps, and we can ensure you hit them all. We assist with structuring the transaction, cash flow analysis, and tax considerations. We can also assist legal counsel with the review of the documents for proper tax and accounting language, and to assist in achieving the best taxation results. If you are a purchaser, we can perform tax and accounting “due diligence” on the books and records of the business being acquired. If you are the seller, we can guide you in structuring your business records and tax posture to get the best post-closing results.
Accounting Software Selection and Implementation
With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to many programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you choose and implement the ideal software system to best fit your unique needs.
Business Entity Selection
Choosing the form of entity of your business is a crucial decision that will have long-standing tax implications, some positive and some negative. Some of the common forms of organization include a C corporation, S corporation, sole proprietor, LLC or LLP (limited liability company or partnership), or a simple partnership. Yes, it is confusing. We can assist you in evaluating the pros and cons of each entity type to help you determine the most advantageous form of business for your company. Remember this is a decision that will last for years.
Successful implementation and periodic review of your financial plan will ensure financial independence during your working years and through your retirement years.
As you develop your investment strategy, we will act as your sounding board. We can help you and your investment advisor build an investment portfolio that takes into consideration the impact of taxes and produces a favorable after-tax return.
A properly structured financial plan enables you to face any financial challenge that may present itself at each stage of your life. Through the financial planning process, we can help you assess your financial needs and develop strategies that will enable you to achieve your goals and strengthen your financial security.
