New York, NY, May 10, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - As part of an organization's planning for expansion, consolidation, movement of product lines, and/or greenfield opportunities, it is vital for tax officers to create a strategy for incentive negotiation that encompasses all disciplines within the organizations that are working together to complete a successful project, says Wes Bowen, Co-Founder and Senior Partner, Harvest Group LLC.
From a solution provider company at the marcus evans Tax Officers Summit XIII 2012, in Hollywood, Florida, May 17-19, Bowen discusses how to challenge your organization to maximize incentive opportunities that are available from a wide range of corporate activities.
- How can tax officers get the best possible incentive outcomes for their organization?
Before deploying any capital into your manufacturing footprint, it is critical to respect the dynamic financial impact a professionally negotiated incentives package can have on the ultimate profitability of the proposed project. Depending on the size of the opportunity, it is wise to introduce or re-introduce the corporate executives to the state and local governmental leadership from the Governor down to the local elected officials.
- Where is the greatest leverage within the negotiated incentive process?
Two components provide the greatest leverage in the incentive negotiation process, the desire for jobs in today's economy and the reality that corporations have choices as to where they do business. It is true that companies must do business somewhere; however, why should they do business in a non-business friendly jurisdiction when they have a choice? It really should be a focus on strategic corporate planning.
- What are the issues that can arise in the negotiating period?
There are several issues that can derail even the best incentive negotiation strategies. First, the unity of message, it is critical that there is a single message that is truthful, strategic, on-point and unified.
Timing is the second factor; the time to negotiate incentives is prior to any indication that a project is a certainty. This one should be obvious.
Lastly, knowledge; find an incentive partner who understands what is available better than the governmental representation that is negotiating with the company. This partner should put the agreements in place in a manner to protect you should your plans change in the future and be committed to completing at least the first year's compliance to ensure that the internal processes within your organization are created and well defined.
- Any final comments?
This is an opportunity for the tax executive to create a partnership with a provider who can add significant financial value to the most high profile projects within an organization. That exposure is wonderful for the tax department who so many times is the last to know within an organization. Now, not only are they the first to know, they are also driving the corporate strategy.
