  43. 43. WILLS, “LIVING TRUST”, & OTHER KEY DOCUMENTS ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  44. 44. Key Points To Address … • Will to address specific assets • HIPAA releases: you, spouse, children, parents • Health care & Financial Power’s of Attorney • Living trust – Eliminate A/B Trust? (“Portability” not “Use or lose” anymore) – May need “QTIP” if children from prior marriage – Instead, use “Probate Avoidance Trust” – Consider “Discretionary Trust” ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  45. 45. Common Mistakes I See … • Trust set up in “unfavorable state” like CA • Trust distributes assets at certain ages … – 1/3 age 25; ½ balance age 30; balance age 35 • Before distribution – asset protection … • After distribution, subject to: – Creditors – Divorcing spouses – Uncle Sam • Other options?©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  46. 46. Discretionary Trusts … • Protect against … In-laws – Outlaws - Creditors - Predators • 13 states - repealed laws against perpetuities • NV allows 365 year trusts • CA – “lives in being + 21 years” … 80 yrs? 100? • Include “incentive language” & “disincentive” • Give beneficiaries right to replace trustee • Can put a “kill switch” in trust for next gen ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  47. 47. Key Points … • Just use probate avoidance trust • Can eliminate A/B provisions • Don’t terminate trust for beneficiaries • Create “discretionary trustee” • Set up trust in asset protected state like NV, DE, SD, AK … or international safe havens • At minimum, insert “trust protector language” ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  48. 48. BUSINESS SUCCESSION AND EXIT PLANNING… ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  49. 49. BUSINESS SUCCESSION AND EXIT PLANNING… A written plan should include: – Timeframe – Determine type of transition (sale or transfer?) – Thought through with all involved parties! – Determine business value? How to increase? – Who needs to be on transition team? – Amount of income needed from a sale? – Ways to minimize taxes and costs? (See my handout from Vistage Int’l Conference) ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  50. 50. SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT ESOP’S • Rarely seen them ultimately used • Expensive (~$100k 1st year + annual fees/costs thereafter) • Doesn’t end there … “repurchase liability” • Where it fits … fits well – Tax-free repositioning into publicly traded stocks – Banks receive special rates & pass along ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  51. 51. MAY I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION TO BE DIRECT – IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SELLING? • Investment bankers or business brokers do not care about how much tax you will pay … • Your CPA will generally tell you to “just pay the tax …” (Client $4M sale last year - $890,000 tax) • Your attorney will not likely get involved • Understand – there are ways to eliminate or defer upwards of 99% of tax upon sale – Split Interest LLC – Deferred Sales Trust – Capital Gains Elimination Trusts ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  52. 52. WHAT IS A “SPLIT-INTEREST LLC?” • Wont’ find it directly in tax code • Split-interest transactions – created in 1969 tax reform legislation • Support the social well-being of America in a way that is good for you, too • Fixed period of years set at outset • Whatever is left in the bucket goes to charity – which could be your own family foundation ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  53. 53. “SPLIT-INTEREST LLC” • Creates tax savings: – Eliminates up to 99% of taxes (from a sale) – Creates current income tax deductions (Present Value of Future Gift) – Undistributed income is up to 99% non-taxable • Asset protection (use DE or NV resident LLC for “wrapper” around asset) ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  54. 54. “SPLIT-INTEREST LLC” • Can “self-direct” account as “Managing Member” – Paid salary as MM – Access to principal of LLC if needed (loans) – Can use to acquire other assets (business, RE, other) – Passes to spouse or child/children if desired ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  55. 55. CASE EXAMPLE – CLIENT “BILL” • His share of business - $20M • Basis – next to nothing • Sale to private company - future plans for IPO • $5M in cash – over two years • RED FLAGS! – 20% Federal LTCG tax – 13% CA State (No LTCG treatment. Ordinary income) – 3.8% Obama Medicare tax ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  56. 56. SOLUTIONS? • Stock “swap” … Section 351 (S. 721 if LLC) • $0 Tax on $15M of swap – Basis carries over to new stock • Did “Split Interest LLC” for $5M cash – $23,000 in taxes instead of $2M! – Control of cash – Asset protection – Et al. ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  57. 57. FINAL POINT … • If considering giving stock to key employees … • Take very cold shower and call me in the morning • Seldom has lasting appreciation by key EE • Better to consider “Synthetic Equity” – Phantom Stock Plan – Stock Appreciation Rights Plan – Wage Continuation Agreement • Death • Disability • Retirement – supplemental compensation ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  58. 58. INSURANCE & REDUCING RISKS ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  59. 59. FIRST … “BUILD” A BETTER STRUCTURE TO OWN THE BUILDINGS ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  60. 60. NOT ALL LLC’S BUILT THE SAME • First defense – adequate liability coverage • LLC to own real property & perhaps business • Consider multiple LLC’s – – The “Live Out Of LLC” – 99% Indiv’l; 1% Rainy Day LLC – The “Rainy Day LLC” - 1% Indiv’l; 99% Domestic APT • Charging order protection – NV, DE, SD, etc. • “Sole remedy” states • Distribution of income – at discretion of “Managing Member” • Borrow from LLC if needing income ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  61. 61. WHAT IS THE LONGEST TIME YOU HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM YOUR BUSINESS? • Week? • Two weeks? • Month? • Longer? • What if one day you walk out and don’t walk back in? How will that impact your business? ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  62. 62. RECOMMENDED PURCHASE OF: KEY PERSON LIFE & DISABILITY COVERAGE • On Pete especially & Sally … • On Brian & Kathy … • For transition, loss of profits, “Persuasion”$$$ • New rules since 2006 • Must get Key EE to sign disclosures ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  63. 63. RECOMMENDED PURCHASE OF: KEY PERSON LIFE & DISABILITY COVERAGE • CPA must complete Form 8925 • No remedy if didn’t follow rules • Fully taxable upon death of key EE • If C Corp, Alternative Min Tax applies to proceeds ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  64. 64. ADDITIONAL PERSONAL COVERAGE • For: – Income continuation to Sally – Business equalization for son, Don … • Cash instead of business interest – Fund Special Needs Trust for Rachel – Replacement income in the event of disability – Money for “long term care” … • 40% below age 55 will have a long term care event ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide

  66. 66. RECOMMENDED HEALTHCARE PLAN REDESIGN … • A what?? ©2014. RJ Kelly. All rights reserved worldwide
  67. 67. The Company That Solved Health Care – John Torinus • Companies 100+ ee’s on healthcare plan o Seeing savings of 20-34% … o 10-18% savings for plans with 50+ ee’s • Don’t pay commissions – pay for reduced claims • Bolt on “drug cop”: 10-40% of costs are pharmacy • Utilize “Health Care Blue Book” ©2014.
