Every business owner has a real life number. It's the number that connects everything behind the scenes you are working towards in your real life; things like your next house, next big investment, or your pension pot.
This real life number can and should be linked with everything that the business is working towards. It is the key to achieving the life you really want, both now and in the future.
However many business owners can find themselves controlled by their business. They become wrapped up in running the business and unable to focus on improving their lifestyle. Everyone desires the benefits good work brings but there has to come a point where the business starts working for you and towards the lifestyle you want to achieve.
One of the ways you can do this is by understanding how tax advice and consultancy can help you achieve your real-life number tax efficiency.
🕊 This is where Saint comes in.
To help you achieve the rewards of your real-life number, we’ll work with you to gain a better understanding of the tax position of your business, calculate your real-life number, and put a tax efficient plan in place. We do this by looking at:
1. Your Immediate Family
Planning across spouses, children and parents (and key family members). This will enable you to achieve financial freedom quicker.
Planning to protect yourself, your partner, your children and the things that you have put absolutely everything into, your business, is important now and into the future.
As you move through life there are big investments you will make, to improve your lifestyle. You will build wealth as wellbeing, health, happiness or financial wealth by examining your disposable income for investment.
As a parent, you want to invest in your children but what this looks like is different for everyone e.g. education, buying a car, deposit for their first home, investment savings, starting a pension.
As a business owner, you need to work towards making pension investments as the tax efficient benefits and often the flexibility of different pension types makes this a must.
Investing in your business is a lesson learnt that pays back over and over. Extracting the maximum value from your business ensures you are being tax efficient however takes the cash of the business. This extracted cash can be invested back into the business to supplement the growth of the company and then be extracted again Tax Free!
📈 Are You Ready?
We have many contractors who come to us who have never had a Tax Planning meeting or discuss some of the points above. These points we know we should be paying attention to or having these conversations but work/life gets in the way. Your accountant/tax advisers should be coming to you with different opportunities available for your business based on the goals you have set out to achieve.
These are the why’s of what you do.
At Saint we try to not only make you aware of these points which you already know but to step up and work with you to get results in each area so these goals become the first thing not the last and give you a shift that everything is slowly getting in the right order.
