There are potential changes in tax laws and the implementation of health care reform-related tax burdens. Firm management and leadership need to act prudently to ensure that the rm is scally sound and sustainable. Join this session to get some important information on capital and debt, and how much each law rm should set aside and/or take on in our turbulent economy. Goals: • Define what precisely is working capital and why it is critical to target and track it. • • • Discuss leasing vs. buying to determine which is better for your firm. Analyze how much working capital a firm should maintain in a volatile environment. Determine the risks associated with taking on too much debt and the pitfalls of phantom income when prior period debt gets repaid.
