Business Tax Preparation
Tax time is a difficult time for most entrepreneurs, especially if they're new to the business. They need to wade through complex tax laws, figure out which regulations and exemptions apply to them, make sure all of their accounts are in order, and much more.
It isn't just a daunting process, but it also draws your attention away from other essential business responsibilities, which can impact your revenue. At Rachal Allred, CPA, we provide expert business tax preparation services in South Carolina to businesses of all sizes.
Types of Business Tax Preparation
The government has different tax systems for different types of businesses. You need to determine your business category and then take the time to understand your responsibilities. Here's a look at the different business types to consider:
- Sole Proprietorship – If you are the sole owner of an unincorporated business, it will fall under this category.
- Partnership – If the business is owned and run by two or more individuals, it is considered a partnership.
- Corporation – A corporation is a business that is separate from its owners and is its legal entity.
- S Corporations – These businesses pass their corporate income, deductions, losses, and credits through their shareholders.
- Limited Liability Company – If a company’s members and employees can’t be held personally responsible for its liabilities and debt, it is considered a Limited Liability Company.
- C Corporations – These businesses pay taxes on their income and a secondary tax on the owner’s dividends.
- Non-Profit Organizations – These organizations don't need to pay taxes, but they are required to file taxes to remain compliant with the tax laws. It means they need the services of a qualified professional business tax preparer.
- International Business – A foreign company carrying out business activities in the US and an American company carrying out activities outside the US are both considered international businesses.
A professional tax advisor in South Carolina can help you understand your obligations and comply with the laws. They will also help you take advantage of government tax benefits and save some money.
