The Anatomy of Tax Planning

  1. Assets and liabilities assessment
  2. Income sources e.g. salaries, investment income, capital gains, business income, dividends etc.
  3. Expenditures, these are either discretionary and non discretionary
  4. Tax deferral vehicles and tax efficient investments
  5. Levels of tax deductible debt
  6. Types of investments
  7. Risk management

In summary, tax planning provides a roadmap for a tax payer to reduce taxes while he/she earns, reduce taxes while he/she spends and guides him/her to strategies to protect, preserve and increase investment income in a tax efficient manner.
