Tax Planning

Tax planning involves arranging one’s business and personal affairs in such a way as to minimize the overall amount of tax paid, and maximize the amount of after tax cash available. At van Wensem and Vukets, we focus on creating a structure for the business owner that will do just that. We like to keep things simple and flexible, but business and tax is a complex subject, so we work with the owner manager, key management personnel, and family members and use our expertise and experience to determine a strategy that’s best for their individual situation.

Business Expansion

As you grow your business here are some other important steps that we can help you with:

  • Holding companies
  • shareholder agreements
  • family trusts
  • foreign expansion
  • lease vs. buy decisions
  • interpreting your financial statements
  • creating a “dashboard” for monitoring your business
  • retirement and estate planning
  • negotiating sale or purchase terms
  • general business coaching


Heres’s what some of our clients have to say about starting their small business:

"Since I purchased an existing business three years ago, I have relied on George not only for tax and accounting advice, but also for assistance with personnel matters, understanding my cash flow, and for coaching me through several important business decisions.
As a first time business owner, I found George’s experience and knowledge to be an invaluable resource."
