A corporate plan is a set of instructions to managers of an organization describing what role each department is expected to fulfill in the achievement of organization's objectives A market plan begins with the identification (through market research) of specific customer needs and how the firm intends to fulfill them while generating an acceptable level of return. It generally includes analysis of the current market situation (opportunities and trends) and detailed action programs, budgets, sales forecasts, strategies, and projected (proforma) financial statements. See also marketing strategy. The marketing planning process A marketing plan is a comprehensive blueprint which outlines an organization's overall marketing efforts. A marketing process can be realized by the marketing mix, which is outlined in step 4. The last step in the process is the marketing controlling. The marketing plan can function from two points: strategy and tactics (P. Kotler, K.L. Keller). In most organizations, "strategic planning" is an annual process, typically covering just the year ahead. Occasionally, a few organizations may look at a practical plan which stretches three or more years ahead. Marketing planning aims and objectives Behind the corporate objectives, which in themselves offer the main context for the marketing plan, will lie......

...Tax Planning for salaried employees DON'T PAY MORE IN ORDER TO SAVE YOUR TAXES. Expert view for tax saving ........................................................................................................................................................ book I About this n India, most salaried people want to increase their personal savings and yearn to achieve financial freedom. But do they REALLY want to save money or are they too busy? Most people are not motivated enough to learn how they can maximize their savings by efficient budgeting of their personal finances. They are unaware of ways to save tax through tax-efficient investment options available in the market. Often, people do not make timely investments and end up paying huge amount of taxes at the end of the year. To make matters worse, lack of updated and timely information makes tax filing a dreaded chore. Salaried people often falsely believe that they do not need any financial planning as their income and expenses are regular. They presume that their savings automatically accumulate in the bank and do not require any intervention to maximize financial gains. But we believe that with some serious effort and knowledge, salaried people can save huge amounts of money and increase their annual income by investing their hard-earned money in tax-efficient schemes. Does tax planning make you nervous? Tax planning is an integral part of personal financial planning. The amount of scattered and......

Corporate Tax

...the highest federal corporate income taxes in the world, enticing corporations to outsource where more favorable tax rates lie. Will lowering this corporate tax rate help bring back those jobs to the U.S. and decrease the growing unemployment rate? Some argue yes, while other experts say no. While we argue both sides of this topic, the goal of this paper is to leave you, the reader, with enough facts to form your own opinions to the above question. How The Income Tax Came To Be In order to learn how the current corporate tax rates came to exist, we must first look at the history of the income tax. Although the Revenue Act of 1894 established the principle of taxing corporations separate from their owners, a federal tax on corporate income was never imposed until 1909. The Revenue Act levied a 2% income tax on any incomes totaling more than $4000 in order to make up the lost federal revenue (Dierdrich 2011). In the next year, the U.S. Supreme Court deemed the Act unconstitutional saying it was not allocated according to the population size of each state. How did Congress work around this? With the same principles in mind that lie within the Revenue Act of 1894, Congress passed the Corporation Excise Tax Act in 1909 (2013). Apart from its predecessor, this Act imposed a 1% tax on corporate income totaling more than $5000 (Tax Foundation 2013); however, it wasn’t until 1913 and the creation of the 16th amendment, which allows Congress to levy an income tax not apportioned......

Corporate Planning

...Corporate planning Corporate planning had its genesis in India sometimes in the sixties when a number of subsidiaries of multinational companies introduced the process in compliance with their parent companies' directives. Since then quite a few companies have introduced formal planning for a variety of reasons. Some introduced it because their top managements felt that it would help them long term objectives; some introduced it because of a fad, not wanting to be behind by others, and some others because were directed to do so. Many public sector enterprises adopted corporate planning because they were to do so by the Bureau of public Enterprises, the governmental body that regulates all public enterprises. Despite the facts that are now quite a few firms which have introduced corporate planning, such firms still constitute a small minority.             On the academic side, research in India on strategic planning has not taken off. There are very few studies on corporate planning practices in India firms. Of late some leading Indian management education institutions have begun to offer short duration executives development programmes on corporate planning. A quick examination of the teaching materials used in these programmes clearly shows a predominance of materials originally developed in the United States. This is not surprising because strategic planning at the enterprise level had its genesis there. Strategic planning or corporate planning is a management process......

...Corporate Tax Planning IRS Code has 3 forms of business: 1) Sole Proprietorship (pass through entity): the business is a mere continuation of the individual. There is no creation of a new legal entity. You use 1044 to file your private money with business income. Code Sec 61 (definition of income) states there is only one level of taxation. 2) Corporation (C or S): create a distinct legal entity. 3) Partnership (pass through entity): create a distinct legal entity. Corporate law states partnerships must be registered with the state. Tax law says the partnership is a reporting entity, but not a taxable entity because there is no taxation at the level of the partnership. The profits are taxed at the end of the partners’ fiscal year. The report file sent to the IRS is to ensure the IRS knows how much income each partner will file with the IRS. It just tells the IRS how the income generated from the partnership was distributed to each partner. Types of Partnerships General: all partners are general partners and have unlimited liabilities. It does not matter if one of the partners did not commit the business transaction, tort, or malpractice. Ex: acquires loan and the loan and cannot the paid back. The creditor has the right to go after any or all the partners. As a partner, one must make sure who is taking out loans for the GP and if it can be repaid because anyone is liable for the loan. However, one partner can go after the other partner for......

...It’s the Season for Tax Planning Clean Up It is autumn and time for a tax planning review. You may have been distracted by a struggling global economy affecting all that you do, but Uncle Sam still wants his share of your personal pocketbook. Taxes must be taken into account on every financial decision. There are many financial issues we cannot control, but there are some we can. You can control the timing of certain transactions relative to income tax planning. It is particularly important before yearend to pay attention to what will be reported on your tax returns. As always, consult with your tax advisor on all tax matters. Here are some tips to consider. * First, review your financial picture. How have things changed? Is cash flow increasing, or decreasing? Do you need to adjust your withholding or estimated tax payments? * Can you accelerate or delay income? * What deductions should be paid 2011, or deferred to 2012. For example, do your deductions exceed the IRS thresholds; medical bills, miscellaneous investment charity donations, property tax, etc. * Are you taking full advantage of retirement plans? If you are over age 50, or are turning age 50 this year, you can make a catch up contribution. For age 50 or older, add $6,000 to your plan. There are some unique aspects of tax planning in 2011. Some of them actually continued from 2010. There is no phase-out of itemized deductions, which this year continues to be a benefit for......

...Tax Planning dan Pengendalian atas PPh Pasal 21 A. KOMPENSASI KARYAWAN: TUNAI VS NATURA Karyawan yang bekerja di sebuah perusahaan dan pemberi kerja lain akan menerima imbal hasil dari jasa yang ia diberikan, berupa kompensasi. Kompensasi yang diberikan oleh pemberi kerja dapat berupa gaji, upah, honorarium, bonus, tunjangan-tunjangan seperti dana pensiun dan tanggungan biaya kesehatan, sampai pemberian fasilitas yang biasa kita kenal dengan biaya kenikmatan atau natura. Pemberi kerja tentu ingin memaksimalkan keuntungan yang mereka terima, dengan memaksimalkan biaya yang bisa mereka bebankan sebagai pengurang penghasilan, agar pajak yang mereka bayarkan semakin sedikit. Di lain pihak, pemberi kerja juga ingin memacu motivasi karyawannya agar dapat bekerja secara produktif dengan memberikan kompensasi tambahan, disamping kompensasi pokok yang mereka berikan. Dalam hal ini, pemberi kerja harus memperhitungkan dengan cermat kebijakan yang akan mereka pilih. Idealnya tentu mereka ingin agar dapat memberikan kompensasi tambahan, dan biayanya dibebankan. Maka dari itu, sebagai bagian dari tax planning, pemberi kerja dapat mempertimbangkan cara pemberian kompensasi tersebut. Natura, menurut Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia diartikan sebagai “barang yang sebenarnya, bukan dalam bentuk uang (ttg pembayaran).” Sedangkan menurut Surat Edaran Dirjan Pajak Nomor SE-03/PJ.23/1984 tentang pengertian kenikmatan dalam bentuk natura (seri PPh......

...account. They are added only if there are serious issues with the account, and small errors are usually not bothered. A qualification would usually start with the words ‘subject to note number’, and less serious qualifications would be identified by the words ‘read with note number’. A qualification can be very embarrassing for the company and the way it makes its financial statements, but this depends on the words used in the qualification and the amount of money concerned. A financial account can be audited for different reasons. Given below are some important types of audited financial statements: 1. Statutory audited statement A statutory audit, as the name implies, is something required under law. Audits for FCRA (form FC 3) and income tax (form 10 B) are statutory audits. According to chartered accountants, company audited financial statements are considered to be statutory audited. 2. Internal audited statement Such statements are common in large organizations, where an internal audit system is followed for regular review of accounting systems. Regularly audited financial statements have a small chance of errors, and also make internal controls strong. Such audits are usually conducted by an experienced auditor or CA firm. In theory, a financial account can be audited by almost anyone, including gazette officers. However, a proper audit can only be conducted by a practicing chartered account governed by ICAI rules, part-B state auditor or an auditor approved by......
