Sauvigne & Company LLP Expands its Offerings and Talent

Sauvigne, Horvath and Lyons join forces

 

JERICHO, NY – June 27, 2016 // Sauvigne & Company LLP (“SC”), today launched a unique division focused squarely on creating additional value for their clients by strategically increasing revenue, optimizing organizational structure and preparing businesses for potential investment or sale. This new division will enhance SC’s current expertise in advising marketing related companies on both buy side and sell side M&A transactions (over 100 closed deals). The announcement includes the expansion of its Executive Team to include marketing industry leaders, Bob Horvath (linkedin.com/in/horvathbob) and Jim Lyons (linkedin.com/in/jim-lyons-757124a).  Bob and Jim have joined the firm as Managing Directors and will lead this newly created business consulting services division. While SC has a proven track record, Bob’s and Jim’s past experiences as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of companies will enable SC to provide the unique combination of unparalleled financial, strategic and operational consulting services to marketing related companies.

"Bringing together this talent allows us to address a need in the marketplace for a thought-leading provider focused primarily on helping marketing related firms maximize their value”, said Chris Sauvigne (linkedin.com/in/chris-sauvigne-78a1bb122), Managing Partner of the firm. 

"We want to be clear that we aren't just another “consultancy” or “accounting firm”.  We are a unique team providing a unique service,” said Lyons. “Many marketing businesses aren’t sure what the best model is for servicing their clients as each client has different needs,” said Lyons. “We can now help agencies and marketing services businesses figure out which model is best for them. This usually results in a better-aligned organization, higher profitability and therefore, a more valuable business. These are important steps to be taken as owners consider their next steps in the future of their businesses.” Horvath added, “In our careers we have done a large number of acquisitions and have found many owners have a similar need – how do I position my business to be most valuable? We can tell them.”

Tax Briefing(s)

The Treasury and IRS have issued guidance on the recent order by President Trump to defer certain employee payroll tax obligations on wages paid from September 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020. Under the guidance:


The IRS has released the 2020-2021 special per diem rates. Taxpayers use the per diem rates to substantiate the amount of ordinary and necessary business expenses incurred while traveling away from home. These special per diem rates include the special transportation industry meal and incidental expenses (M&IEs) rates, the rate for the incidental expenses only deduction, and the rates and list of high-cost localities for purposes of the high-low substantiation method. Taxpayers using the rates and list of high-cost localities provided in the guidance must comply with Rev. Proc. 2019-48, I.R.B. 2019-51, 1390.


The Treasury and IRS have issued final regulations that limit the Code Sec. 245A dividends received deduction and the Code Sec. 954(c) exception on distributions supported by certain earnings and profits not subject to the integrated international tax regime created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) ( P.L. 115-97). Proposed regulations and temporary regulations, issued on June 18, 2019, are adopted and removed, respectively.


Treasury has issued final and amended regulations on the rules for distributions made by terminated S corporations during the post-termination transition period (PTTP). These regulations apply after an S corporation has become a C corporation.


Final regulations clarify that the amount of the rehabilitation credit for a qualified rehabilitated building (QRB) is determined as a single credit in the year the QRB is placed in service. This is the case even though the credit is allocated ratably over a five-year period. The final regulations adopt without modification proposed regulations released earlier this year ( NPRM REG-124327-19).


The IRS has released final regulations that clarify the definition of a "qualifying relative" for purposes of various provisions for tax years 2018 through 2025. These regulations generally affect taxpayers who claim federal income tax benefits that require a taxpayer to have a qualifying relative.


The IRS has announced that Medicaid coverage of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing and diagnostic services is not minimum essential coverage for purposes of the premium tax credit under Code Sec. 36B.


The IRS has released guidance in the form of questions and answers with respect to certain provisions of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act), and the Bipartisan American Miners Act of 2019 (Miners Act).


Final regulations provide additional guidance on the base erosion and anti-abuse tax (BEAT) under Code Sec. 59A. The regulations also address certain aspects of the BEAT under Code Secs. 1502 and 6031.
