Our tax planning strategies for public companies are earnings focused—offering real tax savings that improve your company’s cash flow. We work with you to reduce your company’s worldwide tax burden by identifying permanent tax savings, and preserving tax benefits available in the future. Tax planning strategies of particular value to our public company clients include:
Section 382 Studies
As your company issues its own stock to make acquisitions, compensate executives with stock, or issue new stock in private or public offerings, your company is likely to undergo an “ownership change” that may have adverse tax consequences on your ability to use net operating loss and credit carryforwards. Our senior tax professionals consult with our clients to improve the use of their carryforwards, as supported by Section 382 studies and built-in gains analyses.
Tax Provision Analysis (FAS 109 and ASC 740)
You may find preparing your public company’s tax provision calculation for independent auditor review to be an overwhelming task. As a result of the clear guidance now available regarding prohibited services, our tax professionals are increasingly called upon to help public companies with tax provision preparation.
