Information about the acivities of licenced tax advisors
It is common knowledge that business management necessarily involves tax risk management. This is especially evident under the circumstances of a high effective tax burden placed on businesses, such as in Croatia. Business management serves the goal of long-term optimization of security and efficiency by producing certain economic, market and financial effects. Since the financial effects directly increase efficiency through maximization of net cash flows after taxation, a need for identifying tax risks, their significance and methods of managing potential tax effects necessarily arises for the purpose of maximization of net cash flows as a means for achieving the goal.
Tax liabilities are an important segment of total liabilities and financial expenses of a company. Their value and dynamics are determined not just by business activities, but also directly by the regulations, their amendments and their application. Any delay in tax payment (intentional or unintentional) typically creates a risk of a significant decline in performance, either directly through the emergence of additional expenditures (default interest, fines etc.), or also indirectly through the prescribed highest level of priority of their settlement under the conditions of insolvency.
This priority, frequent periods of occurrence of tax liabilities and their level of importance, often turn even short-lived periods of financial instability into more permanent insolvency and stagnation of business. When it comes to taxes, omissions and errors typically result in either direct decline or prevented growth of business success. This additionally justifies investments into organized management of tax risks.
The interest of management in managing tax risks does not arise merely from the wish to preclude the possibility of penalty for violations, it also arises from the wish to pay the minimum possible tax within legal boundaries and to postpone paying taxes for as long as possible.
Organized tax management means systematic and continuous monitoring of operations in the part related to timeliness and accuracy in calculating and paying all forms of tax. In fact, it means to ensure long-term and reliable proper application of tax regulations. Therefore, we recommend permanent business cooperation with the office of licensed tax advisors Javorović Idžojtić and partners.
