Overview

Supplying managers with essential information to optimally put the fundamentals of taxation to work in their business decisions, Strategic Business Tax Planning, Second Edition succinctly presents the principles of tax management and its applications in everyday situations. The Second Edition communicates universal principles that enable managers to maximize shareholder value and become more effective in their jobs.

With over fifty years of professional experience between them, authors and tax experts John Karayan and Charles Swenson present readers with a critical mass of tax knowledge that reveals how to take full advantage of tax impacts by balancing expected tax burdens against the costs of reducing them.

Toward this goal, the authors employ a practical tax strategy system, SAVANT, an acronym for how tax planning fits into business decisions. Illustrating to nontax specialists a systematic method for analyzing situations in order to generate tax-savings opportunities, SAVANT is: Strategy, Anticipation, Value-Adding, Negotiating, and Timing. Karayan and Swenson teach managers to apply this framework to typical business transactions, demonstrating their points with numerous real-life examples. Using the SAVANT framework, managers can trigger consideration of key tax issues and use tax rules to make better decisions in their business, public, and private lives.

Appropriate for undergraduate students as well as financial managers and consultants, Strategic Business Tax Planning, Second Edition includes: a revision of writing style for a more accessible and reader-friendly presentation and the latest coverage of major federal tax acts, key cases, and administrative pronouncements.
