Importance of Tax Planning

Often, most businesses focus so much on growth in revenue and minimization of costs that taxation becomes a secondary priority. However this is where many businesses stumble because if not administered carefully, tax debt can be a death knell for the business. Tax is critical in terms of cash flow planning, optimising costs, identifying product portfolios as well as to meet the social commitments of the business. Advantages of tax planning includes –

  1. Cash flow -
    Tax liability arises at various times of the year depending on the nature of the business. Cash has to be set apart to make payments for GST, provisional tax etc at these times, and falling short can lead to penalties and interests.

  1. Product portfolios
    Understanding the application of GST will sometime help you develop a good product mix of certain services or goods that may be zero rated on sale, thus making you eligible for GST refund on the expenses.

  1. Improve operational efficiency
    Having a solid tax plan helps you avoid last minute complexities and having the schedule in place means more time to focus on your core activities.

  1. Long term savings
    Good tax structure helps to improve the long term positioning of your business and assets and leads to improved wealth structure.
