- Development, Formation, Registration, Regulation and Compliance:

We can recommend other service providers for monthly and annual accounting
for the fund, including preparation of investor capital statements.
The accounting provider should consult with you on setting up effective
internal controls. Choosing a good accounting provider is key to acheiving
financial reporting objectives, such as preparation of reliable financial
statements. It's important to be sure your fund is auditable, when needed.
Some incubator funds want to save on accounting fees and they choose
to do their own accounting, or cut corners with unqualified service
providers. This can render a fund unauditble, which defeats a purpose
of the incubator fund. If you are okay using your incubator fund as
your own retail trading vehicle, then just preparing annual income taxes
may be all that is needed. Green NFH, LLC can perform this tax compliance
on your incubator fund. We can also advise you on how to scale up again
to accepting investors in the fund later on. The key is starting proper
accounting books and records and becoming auditible for that period
Tax edge: GreenTraderTax, GreenTraderFunds
and Green NFH, LLC are highly regarded in the industry for leading tax
knowledge and strategies, which are key drivers of a business plan for
investment managers and business traders. We will advise you on tax-efficient
structures for your hedge fund when you're ready.
The biggest pitfall for new investment management businesses is blowing
tax elections. Many law firms handling development and formation don’t
have experienced tax counsel or they miss the elections. Administration
and law firms usually punt tax elections to CPAs who often get involved
at year-end when it’s too late on most elections, so involve us
Count on us to handle all the tax matters correctly, including carried-interest
tax breaks, the S-corp self-employment tax loophole, the new 3.8% Medicare
tax on unearned income, trader tax status/Section 475 MTM accounting,
lower 60/40 Section 1256g forex tax treatment breaks, forex tax treatment,
ETF and ETF option tax treatment, international tax planning including
PFIC and QEF elections, mini-master feeders, tax changes and more.
Because structuring your fund for optimal tax results usually depends
upon an analysis of your particular facts and objectives – which
can have many nuances, as do the governing legal rules – having
a seasoned team of tax professionals on your side is a big plus. Our company
provides investment managers with the professional advice needed.

Start-ups, incubator funds, smaller hedge funds and new investment advisers
may have big needs, but they also have smaller pocket books. Leading service
providers to larger hedge funds simply charge way too much and they don't
match up well with smaller entrepreneurs. Few sites give away as much
valuable content as we do. As we proved with small business traders and
managers since our inception in 1983, we are the opposite. Our entire
company and offerings are designed for the special needs of traders and
adviser entrepreneurs. As attested by media interviews, articles, and
customer testimonials, we have highly regarded professionals on our roster.
By specializing in investment management and traders, we are able to lead
the trader tax industry in ideas and strategies, design best practices
and tools, and pass on those values and savings to our customers. Caring
for our customers' many needs over the long-term outweighs any single
project and profits.
