Like-Kind Exchanges of Business Interests - 1 CLE hour

Like-kind exchange rules familiar in real estate law can also be used to exchange ownership interests in companies – corporations, LCCs and partnerships – in a tax-free transaction that might also alleviate non-tax complications of a more conventional exchange.  Though often overlooked alternative to the traditional exchange of assets or stock, the like-kind exchange of business interests is an effective technique for satisfying the financial, tax-deferral, and business goals of clients.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to the circumstances in which like-kind exchange techniques make most sense, how to structure the transaction and allocate value across asset classes for optimal outcomes, and how to treat liabilities.  The program will also discuss common structuring and drafting traps.
