Wealth Management To-Do List for Business Owners

Posted by Jarrod Musick, CFP® | February 28, 2017

You want to sustain financial stability for yourself and your business. As a business owner, you’ll not only have large challenges, but you also have more tools to use in your favor.


Utilize Tax Deductions Wisely
As a small business, tax management is a big task. The decisions you make can impact your bottom line significantly and is one of the many things that a wealth manager can help with.

Reviewing available potential tax deductions for your business is a process that you, your advisor, and tax professional can all work on together.


Protect Your Assets
Your business enterprise value can increase substantially over time as your company grows.

Asset protection is a pretty big subject — but if you want to plan for success, here are five things to remember:

  • Obtain errors and omissions insurance
  • You can include yourself in establishing a pension or profit-sharing plan for your business

Protecting yourself and your family can also include selecting a business structure that provides some protection from legal and creditor claims. As an example incorporating may give you some liability protection.

Beyond that, it’s essential to address every aspect that can threaten the financial stability of your business and employees.

Wealth protection involves setting up legal structures. Managing risk may include tax management, proper insurance coverages, and establishing a diversified portfolio to spread risk among multiple assets. For more information on this subject, take a look at Investopedia’s write up on "Asset Protection for Business Owners."


Get Value from Your Business
You can also create a strategy to regularly use business profits to fund personal external investments. Consistent saving over time is a powerful strategy.


Consult a Wealth Management Professional
With the help of a wealth management professional experienced in serving business owners is ideal.
