Background: Big 4 accounting firm, 2 S&P 500 C Suites, introduced mag stripe cards & digital transactions to the marketplace, ran for Congress, first virtual, cloud based CPA firm with clients in 46 countries and 7 countries.
From my first day at my first employer, I thought people retained tax & accounting professionals to solve a problem. I never conceived they would hire tax professionals solely prepare their tax return by taking the numbers provided and placing them on tax forms. But it turns out, they do. And it also turns out, that’s all most firms do.
Then one day I stumbled across an article from the GAO that reported, “the Global 500 pay less tax at lower rates than privately owned companies.” That was odd, so I dug a little deeper, and discovered Apple’s twin tax strategies, Double Irish & A Dutch Sandwich. I also discovered, the GLOBAL 500 uses tax shelters as a competitive advantage.
Paying less income tax than your competitors is a powerful competitive advantage. But the practice is almost non-existent among privately owned companies. So I became a tax strategist.
In the subsequent years, i have developed five different areas that my tax avoidance strategies fall into.

The only reason businesses fail is ‘differentiation.’ Doing things the way your competitors do things is a recipe for disaster.
99% of business don’t have a single competitive advantage that differentiates them from everyone else. Income tax is the one area where you can differentiate your business without getting going the marketplace. Most tax & consulting firms just prepare tax returns, which is just a clerical service..
