Attend this proactive webinar and gain a better understanding of how tax return analysis can be used to determine an individual and company’s cash flow position. With this knowledge, the CPA will be able to help their clients improve their cash flow position, obtain financing, and/or better manage their on-going business operation.

The first part of the webinar will concentrate on “personal tax return” analysis including reviewing the “true” cash flow derived from the 1040 federal tax return (based on the various schedules and K-1 forms).

The second part will focus on the analysis of various “business tax returns” including the partnership (LLC), S corporation, and C corporation structure, analyzing business federal tax returns and prepare “cash flows” for these entities, and also creating a “global” or combined cash flow analysis (personal & business).

CPAs, CFO/controllers, financial managers, auditors, financial analysts and practitioners who provide accounting, tax or consulting services to businesses.
