Making better choices
is not always this easy

 

Tax Planning

Tax planning is a crucial part of anyone’s overall financial plan and involves finding legal and appropriate methods to minimize an individual’s tax burden.

Effective tax planning ensures that every element of a financial plan works together in the most tax efficient way possible.

The reduction of tax liability offers an individual the opportunity to maximise contributions towards future financial goals, including retirement.

Tax planning can be categorised in the following ways:

Specific Tax Planning

Tax planning with a specific objective

Long-Term and/or Short-Term Tax Planning

Tax planning that is executed at the beginning and towards the end of the financial year

Permissive Tax Planning

Tax planning that falls under the framework of the law

Tax Planning Strategies

Tax planning is an ongoing process which incorporates many different strategies, including:

  • Lowering an individual’s tax rate
  • Avoiding common tax planning mistakes
  • Reducing the amount of taxable income
  • Controlling the time when tax must be paid
  • Claiming any available tax credits

Because business owners are paying tax all year long, they should also always be focussing on tax planning.

Through tax planning, small businesses can ensure that more money is made available for investments, growth or expenses.

The same applies to private individuals who would like to maximise their current and future investments.
