Achieving Success in Uncertain Times: Multi-Unit Franchisees and Tax Exemptions
Multi-Unit Franchisees Face Unique Economic Challenges
Multi-unit franchisees need to stay agile in the ever-changing market in order to capitalize on growth opportunities. Even in uncertain times, there are still prospects for growth. For instance, a downturn in acquisitions could lead to more attractive prices, and an influx of employment chances could attract new talent. To make the most of these possibilities, multi-unit franchisees should prioritize culture to attract and maintain the right people and concentrate on their organizational playbook to scale up processes and procedures effectively and efficiently in their expanding organizations. This is how owners can adapt to uncertainty and seize any growth opportunities that come their way.
Government Spending Increases Are Expected to Impact Taxes
Government spending is anticipated to have implications for taxes, particularly estate and gift taxes, which may be an especially difficult issue for family-owned businesses. To make the most of the current $12 million exemption before it expires in 2025, partnering with a business advisor to strike a balance between tax benefits and the long-term business plans of the owner is essential. Multi-unit franchisees must be mindful of the consequences of allowing the “tax tail to wag the dog.” Though reducing taxes is an important component of estate planning, it should not come at the cost of business development or success. Pros and cons of any asset transfer or estate planning strategy should be considered so that long-term business goals are kept in mind.
