Choosing your salary level:

We know it's often hard to figure out how to determine your own salary level for your business. The IRS requires that an employee or officer of a corporation, LLC or partnership receive a fair and reasonable salary. The IRS does not do this because they are protecting your interest as an employee. The IRS wants to collect the associated employment taxes. It is important you assign yourself a regular and reasonable salary to avoid IRS audits and penalties. 

Limited company dividends:
Sometimes company dividends fall short on what you originally had dreamed they would be. And your shareholders happen to share the same sentiment. If you collect funds from investors they expect to get a return on their investment. Litigation is expensive and time consuming. We can explain you Fiduciary Duties owed to outside investors and minority shareholders to ensure you are not ensnarled in a litigation quagmire.
