If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to transform your business technologically, guess what?
Today is the day!
As a result of the newly passed tax reform bill, businesses of any size--whether small or large--will have access to new deductions. Your business now has a completely unprecedented opportunity to update its tech infrastructure.
If you’re a sole proprietorship, a partnership, or an S corporation, taxes on your pass-through income are about to change dramatically. In fact, you’ll now be able to deduct up to 20% of your pass-through income thanks to the new tax bill!
If you’re a C corporation, you’ll also likely see a massive reduction in your tax burden. Rather than being subject to a variable bracketed tax rate of up to 35%, your company will now be taxed at a flat rate of 21% for all profits. That makes for a huge tax cut!
Section 179 of the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act goes even further to lower the taxes your business will owe. Under this section of the new legislation, your company will be able to write off certain tech-related purchases all at once, rather than depreciating them gradually. In fact, you’ll be able to deduct as much as $1 million in up-front purchases: that’s nearly twice the current limit of $510,000.
As a smart business owner, you’re likely aware of how important it is to adapt to technological changes in your industry. But, if you’re like many other company leaders, you may be hesitant to spend large sums on digital or tech-related updates. You’re more concerned with your bottom line in the current quarter, or with growing your sales before the end of the year. Thinking this way is understandable, but it limits your potential for long-term growth.
With the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, you could save tens of thousands (even millions) per year in taxes. These savings can be invested back into your company immediately. With the right tech strategies, you’ll be able to innovate within your industry. Your employees will work more efficiently; your customers will be happier; and, just as importantly, stakeholders will be more likely to invest. There are technological upgrades available for your business that can dramatically improve the way that people work together with data. These tech strategies can give you the edge that you need in a competitive industry.
Right now, a number of companies are already ahead of the curve. They’re calculated what they’ll save in taxes and they’re investing that money in upgrading their current systems. These investments include their
When you’re able to collect more data, you understand your customers better. The world of business is changing, and staying up to date with the latest tech trends is more mandatory than optional. If you want to be competitive, you need to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to invest in updating the digital side of your business.
