Learn three reasons why Aviance Capital partners help many small business clients with the financial and investment sides of their business.

Entrepreneurs Have Unique Financial Planning Concerns – We Can Help

Small businesses have generated 12.9 million net new jobs over the last 25 years, accounting for 66% of all employment growth and 44% of economic activity nationwide. Despite the huge role that small businesses play, they also suffered widespread economic disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to face challenges in the post-pandemic economic environment. 

Approximately 49.7% of small businesses fail within the first 5 years and 65.5% fail within 10 years. Because of this, it’s up to small business owners to take proactive financial steps to grow, maintain, and adapt their businesses in a changing economic environment.

At Aviance Capital Partners, we enjoy helping small business owners navigate the financial and investment side of their business. Here are 3 reasons why we work with small business owners.

We Are Small Business Owners

We love working with small business owners because we are small business owners ourselves. Founded in 2009, our firm has a total of 10 employees. As a private, owner-managed investment management and financial planning firm, we offer a combination of expert guidance, proprietary investment platforms, and friendly personalized service.

We can help our clients navigate small business planning because we’ve had to answer all of these questions too.

Small Business Owners Have Unique Concerns

Managing your personal finances is one thing, but adding the intricate details of business planning to the mix can be overwhelming for many small business owners. You might have unique concerns that can get in the way of doing what you love—providing excellent products and services to your customer base. A few of the top considerations we hear about from our small business clients include:

  1. Retirement Planning: There are many retirement plan options available to small business owners. Choosing the right plan depends on several factors including the size of the business, the number of employees, and how much you can contribute each year. Offering retirement benefits is also a great way to attract, retain, and reward your employees. But we think it’s important to do so in a way that makes sense for both your own retirement, as well as your company’s bottom line.
  2. Tax Planning: Picking the right business structure can have a huge impact on your year-end tax liability, that’s why we believe. It’s important to understand your unique needs as a business owner and pick the structure that will maximize your business potential and minimize any unnecessary taxes. Managing deductions and credits and understanding self-employment tax can also important aspects of tax planning for small businesses.
  3. Exit & Succession Planning: Do you have a plan for how your business with operate in your absence? Do you know who you want to take over or how your business assets will be liquidated? This is all part of exit and succession planning and answering these questions can be a crucial component to ensuring your business is closed, sold, or transferred in the most efficient way possible.
