It would be my advice for Mr. Jones to not buy the stock because of the liability of current and future tax obligations which Mr. Jones would incur from the purchase of the stock. Since the tax identity of Smithon corporation would have not ceased, it is not a favorable purchase for Mr. Jones. Ina a case where the tax identity of a firm does not cease not to exist, the tax aspects will remain the same and so will the existing tax schedule. So in this case it would mean that Mr. Jones would not be allowed to change the financial year to end on December 31. The buyer in cases where he can’t change the legal entity is in a non -benefice situation, the buyer is limited to follow the current tax basis on the company’s assets even if the buyer paid more for the

Under the constructive receipt doctrine, Reg.1.451-2, the payment is considered income for the current year because the earnings were under the restriction of a successful verdict for your client, and so the payment could not be considered as earned any earlier. Since the company operates as an LLC, all income passes through the owner as ordinary income, after business exclusions and deductions, IRC Code Sec.752. And so, the earnings from will be subject to self-employment tax, FICA, and Medicare tax. 1B. How is the $25,000 treated for purposes of federal tax income?
Lower reserve requirements will result in more funds being available to loan out. This should, in turn, increase the rate of economic growth. Conversely, a higher reserve requirement will reduce the availability of funds and should slow economic growth. In this case, we need to increase our rate of economic growth in response to the recession, so I choose to lower the reserve requirement. The reason I would make this choice is to stimulate lending to businesses, reduce unemployment and increase household income so that the economy could then recover naturally.
Caledonia Products Integrative Problem Shaneal Gaither, Nicolle Istre, Tara Shulfer, Laura Curry FIN/370 October 8, 2012 Instructor: Chrissy Helbling 1. Why should Caledonia focus on project free cash flows as opposed to the accounting profits earned by the project when analyzing whether to undertake the project? Caledonia should focus on free cash flow rather than accounting profits. The reason being is because with free cash flow that money coming in can be immediately reinvested into different projects or areas of the firm to start earning higher revenue.

Jones decides to buy Smithon Corporation he should buy it with the exchange in stocks instead of buying the Corporation outright. This will lower his acquisition cost and in return lower his taxable income since there is no recognition of a gain or loss on an acquisition company with a stock-for-stock exchange. If he decides to buy Smithon Manufacturing he will be able to change it to and S Corp and follow the fiscal year ending on December 31st. By changing it to an S corporation he will have the profits go directly to his personal income and avoid double taxation. A merger would best be used in this situation since it will help lower his taxable income and he can improve his operations and competitiveness.
For a company to retain talent it must offer more incentives for the employees than that of its competitors. Your company encourages the decisions and ideas of the employees but more programs could be put in place to help retain employees. Implementing a program that offers rewards for time and cost savings not only benefits the employee but also the company by projecting a positive image of employee worth to the company. Keeping the companies hiring practice on the national level is required for all employees that work in the retail stores but if there is a need for technology or manufacturing of a particular product I would recommend global labor. The ability to tap into the global labor market will make the company more competitive by being able to offer competitive prices on products due to lower overhead cost associated with the offset in the labor cost.
Companies will have an opportunity to choose among the best talent on the market. Without fictional unemployment people would tend to stay in their current jobs for life and create a stagnant system that could create a negative effect like subduing innovation. Fictional unemployment is also important because it matches the demand for workers with the supply from companies and helps bring equilibrium into the labor
“The net export effect of expansionary monetary policy will be in the same direction as the monetary policy effect”.1 Recommended Course of Action Although both fiscal policy and monetary policy prove to have beneficial effects on an economy during a contractionary period, we believe that the government should use a combination of both policies…… - The money supply may be ineffective, but in the end people want to make sure that they will have money to save up in case of emergencies.

Selling products online will make it easier for Innocent to reach to wide range of customers. Another challenge that Innocent could face is being able to keep its current employees because during recession Innocent might struggle to pay wages so they might think of paying minimum wages.
