Nou vous conseillons tout au long du lancement de votre entreprise
We will be there to guide and advise you through the key stages of your business venture – from the formalities of creating a company to valuing your business as you prepare to hand it over. We pay particular attention to financial planning and pension strategies.
One of our clients, a 45-year-old professional, decided to become a sole proprietor and planned to draw on his occupational pension savings for funding. Our advisors informed him of some of the constraints of starting a business. Not only did the company name have to include his own last name, but if he used any pension assets, the amount withdrawn would be taxed immediately, albeit at a lower rate. He chose instead to secure funding in other ways. As his business grows, he knows he can count on our continued support.
The success of a business venture depends in large part on how much effort went into the planning process.
As you set up and grow your company, it is crucial to track the impact it has on your wealth and tax situation.
Your business venture must be in line with your personal interests and goals. And it must boost – not undermine – your wealth strategy.
Your company may need to acquire land or a building. But before you sign on the dotted line, we will make sure you aren’t better off acquiring the property in your own name.
