Not Being Up to Date with Your Taxes Can Get You into Serious Trouble Over Time


As we begin a new year, it is critical to properly close off the previous year's year-end business transactions. As the deadline approaches, there are a few things to keep in mind. Understanding your company’s tax liability and evaluating the financial position of the business require proper year-end planning.

A successful business that has generated revenue must pay taxes. Rather than focusing on a single year, the goal is to reduce the amount of taxes paid throughout the course of the business's lifetime. This is crucial to keep in mind while speaking with your accountant.


It's crucial to have important discussions with your accountant about the future ambitions of your business. You must be prepared for your meeting with your tax preparer in order to have this conversation. Being organised is key when it comes to being up to date with your taxes. Make sure you have your liabilities, assets, expenses, and income data organised and ready to go. Using resources and expert advice offered by Hilary Wijeratne can be a good place to start when it comes to keeping track of your taxes and other important business documents.


It's a good opportunity to analyse the company's financial status and evaluate production costs and cash flow plans when gathering and evaluating documents for tax preparation. Your accountant can use the data to carry out the necessary computations when they're doing your taxes, regardless of the financial instrument you used to collect the records. Were the changes made last year a success? Is it necessary to make some changes in order to have a better new year?


Finally, it is critical to review tax paperwork on an annual basis. It's crucial to check those tax records, even if they're confusing. It's crucial to know what figures are being reported. If the IRS or the state audits the tax forms, the business owners who signed them may be held accountable. The owner, not only the tax preparer, is responsible for asking questions and being informed about changes in the tax code. So, feel free to ask questions if you don’t understand where a certain amount is reported from.


Finally, it is critical to be knowledgeable about your company's financial management. While you'll probably prefer to be out in the fields or tending to your cows, it's critical to have those conversations with the specialists you're paying to do your taxes. If you don't understand something, ask for clarification. If you've already requested, don't hesitate to do so again. These experts are available to help and advise you on key financial decisions. Hilary Wijeratne’s team can also help you with some of your most pressing tax and accounting issues.
