Consolidated Structures

Information regarding Consolidated Structures is provided in the following sub-sections:

DESCRIPTION

Consolidated structures, also know as, Multiple Business Structuring, is a structure using one company as a master with multiple subsidiaries that remain as individual companies. The isolation of the companies and/or their assets ensures that one structures legal issues do not affect the other Consolidated Structures. This type of entity structuring can also utilize Trusts to hold equipment or real property to further isolate and protect assets.

FEATURES

Using known structure types and innovative techniques to link the structures, constellations from simple to complex can be created to match and support your unique business enterprise.

CHOOSING

These types of structures should be arranged very specifically for your needs. Legally reducing tax liability and sheltering the assets requires experience and knowledge that Nevada Corporate Associates can provide.

TYPICAL  USES

You have a delivery service company that uses trucks to deliver products. You can use equipment trusts to hold the trucks and they are leased to your company. In this way any truck getting into an accident is the only asset that can be legally attacked.

You have a number rental properties. Again in this case, you can place each property into a separate trust thereby isolating each property from the affects created from situations at the other properties.

TAX COMPLIANCE

  • You can issue qualified small business stock and potentially qualify for the qualified small business stock benefit under Section 1202 of the Internal Revenue Code and the rollover benefit under Section 1045 of the Internal Revenue Code [For investments in C corporations that are qualified small businesses under Section 1202 of the IRC before the end of 2011, the tax rate after holding the stock for 5 years is Zero--including a complete AMT exemption (subject to a cap (but a substantial one)).]
  • You avoid the issuance of Forms K-1 to owners, subjecting them to federal income tax on the corporation's income (regardless of whether that income is distributed to them), and potentially subjecting them to state income taxes in the various states where the corporation operates.
  • You avoid having to agree to a cash distribution scheme to cover the taxes of the owners on the entity’s income taxed to them.
