Financial Tax Compliance Benefits: Valuation, Confidence, Line of Credit

financial tax compliance benefits
In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on the financial benefits that businesses often see simply through full compliance with sales tax and other tax guidelines. While some think of compliance as merely a tactic to avoid staying out of trouble with the government (and it works here as well!), there are also several direct ways that doing so will improve your bottom line.

At SalesTaxSolutions.US, we’re happy to help. We offer a wide range of sales tax and other related services to business clients, including compliance reviews and several others related specifically to the realm of compliance. What are some of the other key reasons that staying in compliance not only helps you avoid penalties, but also improves your company’s finances? Here are a few.

Higher Valuations

If your company will ever be in a position where it might be acquired by a larger entity, one of the first things that will happen is a due diligence review. This is essentially an in-depth investigation into every aspect of your business – and one of the key areas that will be looked at is compliance. Obviously, if there are any compliance issues, it will likely lower the valuation of your company. On the other hand, if you have a strong compliance record, it will be one more selling point that increases your value.

Improved Customer Confidence

Your customers want to know that you’re a responsible business – and part of being responsible is paying your taxes. If they see that you have a history of compliance issues, it will likely damage their confidence in your company. On the other hand, if they see that you’re a responsible business that takes its obligations seriously, it will inspire greater confidence.

Better Lines of Credit

If you ever need to take out a loan or lines of credit, having a good compliance record will make it much easier. Lenders want to know that you’re a responsible borrower, and one of the best ways to show that is by having a good compliance history. If you have any compliance issues, it will make it much harder to get the financing you need – and you may end up paying higher interest rates as well.

Avoid Penalties and Interest

Of course, one of the most obvious financial benefits of compliance is that it helps you avoid penalties and interest. If you’re not in compliance, you may be on the hook for back taxes, interest, and penalties – and that can add up quickly. In some cases, the penalties alone can be enough to put a small business out of business. On the other hand, if you’re in compliance, you’ll never have to worry about these costly penalties.

The bottom line is that compliance is important for businesses of all sizes. If you’re not in compliance, it can end up costing you a lot of money – but if you are, it can actually save you money and help improve your bottom line.
