What is Financial Planning?

At its core, a financial plan accounts for your sources of income and creates the means to meet your immediate needs and achieve your future goals. Financial planning is a broad term for a process that incorporates multiple financial tools and strategies in alignment with your objectives. In general, a financial plan will focus on solutions that:

MINIMIZE RISK

MAXIMIZE RETURN

LEVERAGE ASSETS

PROTECT ACCUMULATED WEALTH

RECEIVE FAVORABLE TAX-TREATMENT DURING ACCUMULATIONAND DISTRIBUTION

ESTATE PLANNING

LEAVE A LEGACY

Estate planning is the process by which you detail how accumulated wealth or assets are transferred to the next generation. Without a properly drafted and structured estate plan, your assets can become entangled  between your heirs or lose significant value upon transfer. While the core principle of estate planning—designating beneficiaries—is fairly simple, an estate plan often includes  more complex factors. Even a direct transfer to an heir may require detailed structuring and legal documentation.

Tax Planning

You read that right.  We are now e-filing individual taxes for both members and non-members.

Failing to properly structure your assets and growth strategies can lead to the unnecessary loss of a portion of your retirement income. While you can’t avoid taxes, there are strategies and solutions that can help you retain more of your accrued wealth.

 

This is where the process of tax planning comes into play.​Tax planning is the evaluation and analysis of a financial situation to determine its most tax-efficient structure. Every financial solution or product will have a tax treatment that needs to be addressed. Some may have tax-deferred benefits and see a tax liability only on distribution. Some may be taxed as the asset grows. Some, such as retirement accounts like 401(k)s and IRAs may have contribution limits and incur penalties for early withdrawals. It’s important to see tax planning as an integral part of your overall financial and retirement planning process.

 

You shouldn’t only be concerned about taxes when you are ready for retirement; effective tax planning examines your strategies every step of the way.
