Women's Health & Wellness Technology Challenges and Trends
Sales tax nexus analysis could have a significant impact on FemTech companies that sell products or services in multiple states. These companies may be required to register for and collect sales tax in states where they have established nexus, which could increase their administrative burden and potentially reduce their profit margins making it increasingly important to work with advisor who understands sales tax.
Women’s Health & Wellness companies often collect and store sensitive personal and health-related data, making them a prime target for cyber-attacks. A data breach can result in legal and financial liabilities, damage to the company’s reputation, and loss of customer trust. As such, ensuring strong cybersecurity measures and data protection protocols is crucial for women’s health tech companies to maintain compliance, shield their customers’ privacy, and safeguard their business operations.
Inventory management can have a significant impact on the success of Women’s Health &
Wellness companies. Effective inventory management helps these companies ensure they have enough stock on hand to meet customer demand while minimizing the cost of excess inventory. Inaccurate inventory tracking or mismanagement can lead to stockouts, delays in fulfilling customer orders, and increased expenses, which can harm the company’s bottom line and reputation.
Qualified Small Business Stock (QSBS) can have a significant impact on FemTech companies by providing investors with a tax incentive to invest in their business. Under current law, investors can exclude up to 100% of the capital gains from the sale of QSBS held for more than five years, which can make investing in Women’s Health & Wellness Technology companies more attractive. This tax incentive can help FemTech companies access funding and potentially grow and scale business. Withum’s team is well-versed in QSBS requirements and can assist your business with understanding eligibility and its needs.
Eliminate disparate systems and Excel worksheets with a unified suite of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools built to handle all core business processes. Get improved visibility into almost every area of your organization to more easily be able to recognize opportunities for improved productivity, increased efficiency, cost-reduction and accountability. Withum is fully equipped to upgrade your system and provide your FemTech company with unique services to help you take full advantage of your software solution.
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are prevalent in the technology industry and can help your business achieve its ultimate goal. Proper advisors can help ensure that your company receives an accurate valuation and that any potential risks or contingencies are properly accounted for. We have the ability to help your women’s health tech company understand the tax implications of the transaction and ensure compliance with relevant accounting standards.
