IPO & Pre-IPO Tax and Financial Planning

In the high-stakes world of private company financing, nothing is more important than planning for a successful initial public offering (IPO) or potential pre-IPO exit. An initial public offering, or IPO, is a milestone for any private company going public. It means investors see enough potential to let the world know about it.

An Initial Public Offering expands a company’s visibility, capitalizes on its strengths, and brings in new investment partners who share its long-term vision. It also comes with some unique tax considerations. Interactive Wealth Advisors is here to help.

How Can We Help?

When a company goes public, it can create varying tax implications for its owners and major investors. When a company first sells stocks to the public, it is known as an initial public offering (IPO). The owners of the company (shareholders) usually receive funding from the sale of company stock, although there will most likely be a blackout period of six months before any sales can be completed

At Interactive Wealth Advisors, we understand the challenges of once in a lifetime tax bills and the stress of sudden wealth from an IPO or early exit for major shareholders. Our IPO advisors can guide you through the maze of tax planning and various business structures to allow you to reach your desired outcomes with minimal stress.

Best Practices for IPO Tax Planning

Determine your financial goals
Before jumping into the pre-IPO planning phase, it is important to determine your financial goals.
Be realistic and flexible
Once you have determined your goals, you will want to be realistic and flexible when planning how to achieve them.
Create a solid financial plan
A solid financial plan will help you stay on track towards achieving your financial goals. For example, does it make sense to choose an 83(b) tax election, should I gift my stock to reduce my estate tax, what other legal techniques am I missing? A solid financial plan addresses these issues and other IPO tax considerations so you can make the smartest decision possible.
Evaluate your risk tolerance
While it is important to have a financial plan in place, it is also important to understand your risk tolerance. You most likely won’t want to take the same amount of risk with a sizable portfolio.

Our Process

Assess the company’s readiness
Is your company going public in the next quarter or will it be years away? Having a sense for the timing will help determine the most appropriate strategies. How does the “street” feel about the management team, track record of past performance, profitability, sustainability. The more positive press your company gets the better your odds of a liquidity event.
Determine your taxable income for the year
Calculate your tax bracket or rate of tax that you will be subject to. We also estimate potential gains that you could receive from an IPO investment, based on the amount of money you will invest and the future growth potential of your company’s stock price over time.
Develop a tax strategy
It’s never too early to start planning for future taxes. Last minute tax strategies with rushed and improperly set up trusts can lead to tax headaches down the road. Ideally, you’ll want to run several ‘what-if’ scenarios to prepare for different outcomes well ahead of your exit.
Establish a tax-efficient structure
In order to minimize the impact of taxes on the expected proceeds from an IPO, the shareholder should execute a tax-efficient structure that includes an appropriate mix of debt and equity, and strategic use of deductions where applicable.

Who Is It For?

The planning for IPO benefits the Company’s CEO and/or CFO, COO or equivalent, General Counsel, Business Development Manager, or Chief Compliance Officer, other key executives and/or Board Members, and Tax and Accounting Professionals who are integral to the IPO process (i.e., tax lawyers, CPAs, accountants, etc.)
