Most business people spend the too much of their time developing strategies to generate more income. They think that the secret to becoming wealthy is to make more money. While making more money is important, their reasoning is flawed. That’s because they are unconsciously throwing money away every single year. One of the biggest areas where you throw money away is overpaying your taxes. There are two tax systems in this country, one for the educated and one for the uneducated. At The Sadar Group, tax education, for the benefit of our clients, is very important.
COMPUTERIZING YOUR BUSINESS
We can set up and train your company on QuickBooks, BusinessWorks, Peachtree and other accounting software packages. This can provide useful and timely information in the form of financial statements, reports and graphs. It can only provide this information, however, if you purchase the right product and then install, set up and use it properly. We don’t just help you use the software; we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.

Forensic Accounting provides an accounting analysis that is suitable to the court which will form the basis for discussion, debate and ultimately dispute resolution. As forensic accountants, we utilize accounting, auditing and investigative skills when conducting an investigation. Equally critical is our ability to respond immediately and to communicate financial information clearly. The Sadar Group is trained to look beyond the numbers and deal with the business reality of the situation.
If you were unable to be there to run your company, what would happen to it? Would your family members, co-owners, managers and/or employees know what to do? Would they have the guidelines and tools they would need to help the business survive and thrive? The Sadar Group will help you to not fall into the trap that jeopardizes too many family-owned businesses, the failure to properly prepare for a transition in ownership or a lack of adequate funding to complete your financial goals.
Boosting profits from existing business without incurring higher costs is a challenge businesses face daily. And while nearly everyone in an organization pays attention to profitability, often there’s no one actually tasked with managing it. The Sadar Group understands that, in order to boost profitability, you must first understand it. Many organizations combine inaccurate cost information with other financial and operational data to create reports on customers and products, often generating misleading reports. The Sadar Group helps our clients measure true profitability.
The purpose of an efficiency study is to measure an organization’s productivity relative to the input of human and other resources. The Sadar Group professionals are trained to conduct efficiency studies directly impacting the organization’s “bottom line”, by analyzing and reporting on effectiveness in an organization.
We particularly specialize in tax strategies for the closely held businesses. The Sadar Group continuously monitors federal, state, and local tax law changes to allow our clients to minimize current and future tax liabilities.
Business coaching is the practice of providing support and occasional advice to an individual or group in order to help them recognize ways in which they can improve the effectiveness of their business. You may need a “voice of reason” for a business decision or just need someone to talk to. The Sadar Group is positioned to help, as little or as much coaching as you need. BUSINESS COACHING = PEACE OF MIND.

A successful internal control environment should allow an organization to achieve consistent, timely and useful information. The design, implementation and monitoring of the internal control system are crucial to the overall success of the organization. It is safe to say that no two organizations are alike when it comes to their particular control structure. In each case, we adjust our approach to fit the unique needs of our client. We believe that all of the safeguards and procedures in the world will not do a bit of good if the organization cannot productively conduct its business.
The Sadar Group professionals know that tax-deferred exchanges have been in the tax code for a long time and is a significant tax-saving opportunity for real estate investors. The key advantage of a 1031 exchange is that it can allow an investor to dispose of a property without incurring a tax liability. This allows the earning power of the deferred taxes to work for the benefit of the investor instead of the government. We can assist you with your 1031 exchanges.
Many companies need higher-level financial services but can’t always afford to hire full-time controllers and CFOs.

This provides the best of both worlds: top-level financial support without the overhead cost.
In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. The Sadar Group can help you develop this management tool. It can be used for many purposes: to help an organization do a better job, to focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals and to assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to a changing environment.
The Sadar Group prepares professional, GAAP or OCBOA, financial statements as well as tailor-made financial reports that can help business owners and managers eliminate inefficiency and realize a business’s full profit potential.
BUSINESS FRAUD PREVENTION AND DETECTION
Do you know that the most costly abuses of fraud occur in organizations with less than 100 employees? Do you know the “Red Flags” of fraud? We are experts in fraud prevention and detection. We can design a cost-effective system to keep your company assets safe.
Goal setting is vital to any organization, but it’s particularly important for closely held businesses. It may be tempting to focus solely on short-term goals and results, particularly in today’s competitive climate, but a shortsighted approach disrupts the goal-setting balance that’s needed for long-term success. Smart organizations pay attention to both immediate earnings and the delivery of strong, sustainable earnings year after year. The best approach is to establish a mix of short-, medium-, and long-term goals, and revisit them frequently.
DEBT AND FINANCING ADVICE
Whether your needs are corporate or personal, our professionals can assist you in sorting out the different options available for debt management and financing that will lower your payments and/or reduce the total amount of interest paid. Re-balancing your debts can also result in tax savings. Even if you are able to handle the payments and the amounts of your current debts, our expertise may be able to save you money and/or lower your payments.
REAL ESTATE CONSULTING
An accurate understanding of the local real estate market is key to the success of a company both when financing new developments and managing existing real estate portfolios. The Sadar Group integrates local market knowledge and expertise to deliver real estate consulting to small- and medium-sized business owners, investors and property owners.
CASH MANAGEMENT / BUDGETING
Business analysts report that poor management is the main reason for business failure. Poor cash management and the lack of comprehensive budgeting is probably the most frequent stumbling block for entrepreneurs. Understanding the basic concepts of cash flow and budgeting will help you plan for the unforeseen eventualities that nearly every business faces.
COST SEGREGATION STUDIES
The primary goal of a cost segregation study is to identify construction cost that can be depreciated over 5, 7 or 15 years instead of 39 years. This results in accelerated depreciation deductions. This increase in depreciation expense is used to offset otherwise taxable income, which therefor defers taxes and increases cash flow.
