Asset Protection Planning Benefits

Asset protection and tax planning are vital for your business because:

Protects it against some lawsuits

Personal financial planning for business owners minimizes the risk of businesses being a target for lawsuits. A professional financial consultant will thoroughly assess your business, informing you of items and properties that would be deemed unworthy in case of a lawsuit. They will then devise unique asset protection strategies to safeguard them.

It provides security for uninsurable wealth

Insurance companies have standard policies that may leave some of your assets uninsured. As much as insurance policies are designed to make you feel secure, such caps may leave you feeling vulnerable.

In this case, financial planning and asset protection are surefire ways to secure your wealth. A reputable financial consulting firm will look at such loopholes extensively, offering viable solutions to fill such gaps.

It establishes your business as an independent entity

Some entrepreneurs will be entangled in unprecedented legal issues. In such scenarios, it’s vital that your personal property and money remain secure.

Investment management consultants in Portland will help establish your business as an independent entity. This helps secure your personal property in case of legal claims, allowing you to bounce back quicker after the case is closed.

Who Is It For?

Tax planning and asset protection are best suited for the wealthy. This includes business people with a high net worth, as they are often targets for creditors and ‘financial predators.’ It’s also ideal for doctors, physicians, real estate developers, and other established professionals in high-risk careers.

Best Practices for Asset Protection Planning

Finding the perfect financial asset protection tools
Setting up advanced asset protection tools is a surefire way to protect your wealth against creditors. Some of the tools to consider include LLCs, special trusts, IRAs, LPs, and annuities. An experienced fee-only financial advisor in Portland, OR will be able to round up the essential tools that will generally keep your property safe from creditors. Since it’s not a foolproof strategy, talk to your advisor and let them enlighten you on exceptions (if any) that apply to your situation
Understand that business and personal wealth do not mix
Whichever protection structure you choose, make sure there is a clear distinction between personal and business assets. Doing so ensures that, in the event that a plaintiff slaps you with a lawsuit, they will only go after one of them, not both.
Consider shared control
An asset protection planning advice that you will almost always come across is to avoid having sole control over your estate. Multiple people sharing control will limit a creditor’s right when seeking debt payment or compensation. Trusts provide an excellent way for high net-worth persons to share control. Doing so minimizes the risks of losing a significant amount of money and property to lawsuits, business liabilities, or divorce.
