“I started working with a new client, a landscaping company in the middle of restructuring multiple businesses. The executive team had plans to move all of their equipment from their operating entity to a holding company for liability reasons. However, they were unaware that this transition would create a significant taxable gain. I was able to step in, and with the help of other CPAs at Beene Garter, we designed a strategy where the business used a qualified S corporation subsidiary to accomplish the legal goal, while also deferring gains associated with the equipment. This strategy allowed the company to avoid a surprising, high tax bill of about $150,000. And it allowed them to keep valuable cash to grow the business.”
