Family Wealth: How to Retain it with Better Financial Reporting & Cash Flow Insights

Retain your Family Wealth by Organizing your Financial Life

Family wealth is a product of success and comes with great responsibilities. In a recent article in the Journal of Accountancy, the best time to evaluate your financial plan is after tax season when you have the most up-to-date information about your family wealth.  Nearly eight in 10 affluent families use the information on their tax return to guide their planning for the year, according to a Harris Poll.

“Organizing and reporting your sources of income, results from investing, and outflows for deductible expenses leaves you with a current road map and a unique opportunity to take a fresh look at whether your strategies are on track to meet your financial goals,” said Neal Stern, AICPA’s National CPA Financial Literacy Commission. “Tax time brings your financial situation to the forefront,” he said.

Wouldn’t it be helpful to have this information at your fingertips any time of the year, and not just after tax season?

The majority of high-net-worth families have a team of advisors to guide their family wealth decision making. These include trust and estate attorneys, CPAs, certified financial planners and wealth managers.  Yet, the actual day-to-day financial responsibilities of staying on top of due dates, paying bills, organizing financial records, tracking expenses and creating budgets relies on the family. The more complex this becomes, it is harder to track and get a clear picture of family wealth.

In order to make better decisions and retain your family wealth, it is important to have accurate and up-to-date financial information.  Plumb Family Office Accounting offers outsourced accounting services to the high-net-worth and provides consolidated financial reporting with real-time data for a holistic view of family wealth.  Unlike wealth management firms, Plumb Family Office Accounting does not manage money or recommend investment strategies.
