Advisory services can range from tax planning to representation before the IRS or local government. Typically, these services are best developed in advance of business transactions to reduce tax surprises.
As an example, a Steuerberatung may offer a bespoke solution for a company looking to enter a new market. This is the best way to show a prospective client that you have the skills and expertise to handle their specific situation.
In a typical consulting scenario, a good adviser will use cloud accounting software to automate much of the bookkeeping process in order to provide real-time financial data for planning and decision making. The cloud can also display the most relevant information to your clients in real time, making them more likely to trust your recommendations. By using the latest tools and technology, you can better serve your clients and increase revenue. The path to delivering the best advisory solutions for your firm is long and winding, but it is worth it in the end.
Tax planning is the process of minimizing your tax liability by making effective use of tax credits, tax deductions and other tax-saving tools. This strategy can help you earn back more of your income and lower your tax bills at the end of the year.
The benefits of tax planning can be long-lasting and accrue over time. They can benefit everyone from low-income families to retirees, small businesses and massive estates.
To be successful with tax planning, you need to understand your tax bracket and tax credit options, as well as itemized versus standard deductions. This will give you a better idea of how much money you will owe come next tax season and what steps you can take to reduce your liability.
Besides saving you money, tax planning can also help you avoid penalties and organize your financial documents. It can help you save for a child’s education or build a retirement fund, and it can help you grow your business.

Tax audits are used to verify that taxpayers have accurately reported their income and if not, to determine if more taxes are owed. They can also help businesses identify and correct bookkeeping errors to avoid additional tax liabilities in the future.
During the recent fiscal year (FY 2022), IRS revenue agents were assigned to audit 165 million income tax 1040 returns filed by American taxpayers. Even though this group includes millionaires, the odds of an audit by a revenue agent on a return with an adjusted gross income over one million dollars was only 1.1 percent!
These numbers are based on internal management reports released each month to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University under a court order entered after successful litigation under the Freedom of Information Act. They show that the class of taxpayers with the highest audit rates – five and a half times virtually everyone else – were low-income wage-earners taking the earned income tax credit.
