Corporate Structure, Business Succession & Tax Planning
CORPORATE STRUCTURE, BUSINESS SUCCESSION & TAX PLANNING
Quantum Strategies advises in all aspects of estate and business planning. Our clients include entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 executives, professionals, and other high-net-worth individuals.
Our team takes a unique approach and acts as “business advisors”, working in collaboration with our clients’ accountants, attorneys, and other professionals.
We develop the most appropriate and tax-effective plan for asset management, business succession planning, and the transition of wealth to subsequent generations. We do not draft any documents but act as the quarterback by coordinating with our clients and their advisors in all aspects of their estate planning. This includes individual and business tax matters, choice of business entity, business succession planning, family law issues (including pre- and postnuptial agreements and estate and gift tax consequences of proposed divorce settlements), retirement benefit planning, insurance, and real estate issues.
Quantum Strategies employs all the appropriate estate and business planning tools for our clients which include:
- Revocable living trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, dynasty trusts, and asset protection trusts
- Qualified Personal Residence Trusts (QPRTs)
- Grantor-Retained Annuity Trusts and Unitrusts (GRATs and GRUTS)
- Intentionally Defective Grantor Trusts (IDGTs)
- Charitable trusts
- Creation of family limited partnerships and limited liability companies
- Buy-sell, employment, deferred compensation, and stock-bonus agreements
- Planning with life insurance, including life settlements and premium financing
In addition to the sophisticated tax aspects of estate planning and centralized management of assets, we organize all of the client’s documents, policies, investments, and savings accounts on a secured virtual vault.
THE QUANTUM BUSINESS SUCCESSION AND ESTATE PLANNING PROCESS DELIVERS RESULTS
Successful owners of closely held companies and family businesses have a series of unique issues that if not handled effectively can place a tremendous burden on all of the stakeholders.
The professionals at Quantum Strategies specialize in helping the ownership identify and groom successors either internal or external and create a capital structure that minimizes both income and estate taxes.
Although most people have completed some planning, we find many can either make small adjustments or, in some cases, major revisions to their plan to maximize the effectiveness and bring it in line with their stated objectives.
We follow a proven process that continues to deliver results.
We begin by helping you crystallize your long-term objectives while identifying specific shorter-term strategies that will help you achieve your goals.
Our team performs a comprehensive analysis of your current plan by reviewing the management team, assets, legal documents, and effectiveness of your current plan vs. your stated objectives.
You and your team will receive various strategies that will help you in the planning process and – most importantly – we will coordinate with your accountant and attorney to implement your plan.
