What is tax planing?

Tax planning is an activity in which a company or an entrepreneur attempts to predict the tax consequences of different scenarios.

Tax planning aims to avoid surprising tax payments of a company or an entrepreneur.

Why is tax planning beneficial?

The purpose of tax planning is to predict what kind of tax implications a company or an entrepreneur has when withdrawing profits from the company 

It also provides more possibilities to lower the amount and affect the timing of the taxes.

The goal of tax planning is to help companies distribute the company’s profits to shareholders and entrepreneurs as tax-efficiently as possible.

Usually an entrepreneur attempts to minimize tax consequences. The idea is that all income is taxed only once and with the lowest tax rate possible.

Short-term vs. Long-term benefits?

In the short-term tax planning is about the company’s taxation of the accounting period and dividing taxable income into capital income and earned income. In other words, deceding between salary payment or divident distribution 

In the long term, it is about ownership and company structure, the optimal taxation made possible by arrangements as a company changes its ownership via acquisition, generation change or disbandment of the company.
