Case Story #3:
Protecting Financial Investments

Board members of publicly traded companies are finding out just how dramatically the Sarbanes-Oxley law and recent events have changed the business world. Even though many companies are being run cleanly, this new business environment now poses significant personal risk to managers and employees.

Under new laws of personal liability, there are now few ways to insulate directors, managers and employees from personal liability and the focus of asset protection planning must be on protecting family assets, principally the family home and investment accounts.

In this case, the Weber family had been residing in their house for the past twenty years and a lawsuit made the prospect of losing their home, furnishings, investments, and literally everything they had worked for in a single lawsuit unbearable. The first step in their protection planning was to transfer ownership of their home from the husband, being the board member of his company, to the wife as her sole and separate property. The next step was for the wife to then contribute the home to an irrevocable trust. This structuring now afforded an insurmountable level of protection for liabilities directed against him, and even provided a significant level of protection against any liabilities that his wife could face, such as in the event of an auto accident.

To protect Mr. Weber’s investment accounts and primary rental properties, he was then shown two primary strategies: First ‘quick claim deed’ all the real estate to LLCs connected to the family’s limited partnership; Second, transfer all ownership of the investment accounts to a properly structured Limited Liability Company (LLC) or an International Business Corporation (IBC) providing bank accounts in the Cayman Islands and 20 million US dollars insurance from Lloyd’s of London Insurance company.

Mr. Weber never even had to sell his stock portfolio; he merely transferred it.

Incorporate

INCORPORATE EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE
A BUSINESS

Complete Privacy
There is a reason why almost all successful people choose to incorporate. It permits them to manage their assets anonymously and their private corporate lives are never made public. Only in Nevada can a corporation be set up so that you own and control your corporation while your identity and ownership remain a total secret. Some individuals choose to have a separate corporation for their large assets such as brokerage accounts, a rental property, a boat, or recreational vehicles.

Profit
Your corporation can maximize profits by taking advantage of the tax laws. A corporation can write off most purchases of goods, vehicles, and services as expenses. By organizing your activities so that much of the profits go to a corporation in tax-free Nevada, you can dramatically increase your net income. You pay the government less—and take home more!

Flexibility
A corporate structure allows you to place different investments under separate corporations. You retain complete control of all your investments. But if one corporation runs into trouble, it won’t suck the profits away from the other, more successful, investments. Without incorporation your profitable ventures would have to pay the debts of any unsuccessful ventures!

Estate Benefits
Because a corporation’s existence is perpetual, your corporation can outlive you. By using estate-planning strategies that are possible only with a Nevada-based corporation, you may be able to pass your estate to your heirs without going through probate. This can save both legal costs and inheritance taxes.

Protection
Nevada permits corporations to lien up homes, cars, boats and business assets.


YOU CAN BE COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS

A Nevada is required to list only the name and address of its manager with the Secretary of State. In fact, Bridgeway Financial can provide a Management Privacy Trust to fill this position, thus ensuring your complete privacy.

Nevada law does not require owners to register with the state. Therefore, you can own all the units and maintain control of all assets, while designating a nominee to act on your behalf and your identity will be kept completely secret. This makes it impossible for anyone to track down the ownership of your asset protection. Officers are never public record and no yearly renewal fees make them almost as good as a property trust.


ASK YOURSELF...WHAT IS PEACE OF MIND REALLY WORTH TO YOU?

As an independent entity, debts and taxes are separate from those of its owners. Therefore, Nevada provides an individual in business, whether What is peace of mind worth to you?salaried or on commission, with the greatest personal liability protection. Once a lawsuit has been filed, the law will not allow you to move your assets. You must act ahead of time to protect what you own before it becomes under attack. "Without Asset Protection you could suddenly lose everything you've worked for!"


WITHOUT ASSET PROTECTION YOU COULD LOSE EVERYTHING

A study by the Institute for Legal Reform found:

  • Nine out of ten lawsuits in the world are filed in the United States.
  • A new lawsuit is filed every two seconds.
  • If you own a business or practice a profession you have a one-in-three chance of being named a defendant in a lawsuit in the next year, and the odds will only grow worse. It is estimated that over 100,000 law school students are currently approaching graduation.

STOP BEING A TARGET FOR
MONEY-HUNGRY LAWYERS

David Henderson worked hard at his profession and accumulated the rewards that go with success. Then a disgruntled client named David as a Defendant in a lawsuit and threatened to “take him for everything he was worth.” But after David and his attorney had a talk with the plaintiff’s attorney, the suit was quietly dropped.

The reason? In spite of David's apparent wealth, he
does not legally “own” anything that a lawsuit or court judgment can take. David had the foresight to shelter
his assets in judgment-proof entities.


ASSET AND LIABILITY PROTECTION

Under the law, Nevada provides for an "artificial person,"
completely separate from the people who own and operate it.

This is different from an individual or sole proprietorship where the owner bears the full and complete financial responsibility for his or her actions.

In Nevada debts and taxes are separate from those of its owners.

Therefore, Nevada provides an individual in business, whether salaried or on commission, with the greatest personal liability protection.

Nevada doesn't share confidential information about its corporations and limited partnerships with the IRS. In 1992 and again in 2001, the IRS formally requested such an exchange program and the Nevada Governor turned the IRS down flat!

WHO SHOULD HAVE ASSET PROTECTION

The obvious answer is anyone whose combined Business and Personal taxes are cutting deeply into their income. If you look at the money that is going to the government and think, “I could do so much more with that than they will,” you need asset protection.

Further, you can separate your business assets from your operating company to protect your equipment and other assets from customer liability. Nevada is the only state that provides "Charging Order Protection" for both corporations and LLCs. This prevents personal creditors from seizing your corporate shares and thereby taking control.

Nevada law clearly makes the actions of a corporation’s representatives exempt from personal responsibility except in cases of outright fraud. The best asset protection is to incorporate; the best place to incorporate is in tax-free Nevada.

WHAT IF YOU ARE FACED WITH A LAWSUIT

What if you are faced with a lawsuit?

Do not be fooled - even if you are innocent, that does not mean the courts are on your side. Jurors often side with the plaintiff who appears to need the funds in question rather than the defendant who they assume has money to spare.

Even a judge's own personal feelings or politics can put you in jeopardy. Read the following outrageous quote below:

"As long as I am allowed to redistribute wealth from out-of-state companies to injured in-state plaintiffs, I shall continue to do so. Not only is my sleep enhanced when I give someone else's money away, but so is my job security, because in-state plaintiffs, their families, and their friends will re-elect me."
- Chief Justice Richard Neely, West Virginia Supreme Court

If you act NOW it's not too late to shield your assets from plaintiffs and their attorneys. Clients are happy to learn that there is still a lot they can do to protect their assets.

ANY OF THESE COULD LEAVE YOU PENNILESS AND IN DEBT

  • A breach of contract through no fault of your own
  • A professional malpractice suit
  • Catastrophic medical bills
  • A devastating weather event
  • Divorce
  • Loan guarantees
  • Claims from creditors should your business fail
  • A lawsuit from disgruntled business partners or employees
  • Seizure of your home or other assets without due process by the U.S. Customs or other government agencies with forfeiture power – The Patriot Act
  • A huge tax bill and escalating penalties following an IRS audit
  • Huge fines for violation of state or federal law because of the actions of an employee
  • A negligence or injury claim, whether justified or not, that exceeds any insurance coverage you may have

ASSET PROTECTION

Under the U.S. legal system, the deck is stacked in favor of the Plaintiff and against the Defendant. Many lawyers now specialize in contingency fee lawsuits in which they are paid only a percentage of whatever they win for their clients. This encourages the filing of numerous frivolous lawsuits. Since a new lawsuit is filed every two seconds, the average business owner or professional person stands a chance of being sued numerous times in his or her lifetime. Any lawsuit, no matter how apparently worthless, could result in a ruinous judgment, or at a minimum disastrous legal fees.



WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THAT THEY DON’T NEED ASSET PROTECTION

Tom Stanton thought he had it all - a beautiful home for his family, the car he had always wanted, a growing list of investments, his children in excellent schools, and dream vacations with his wife. BUT all that changed when he was served with process naming him as a defendant in a huge lawsuit. It didn't matter that he was convinced he had done nothing wrong. He lost everything he had and still owes his attorney for all the legal costs.

YOUR ESTATE COULD GO TO THE GOVERNMENT, NOT TO YOUR HEIRS

A carefully designed strategy allows you to posthumously care for your loved ones free from probate and other legal and tax problems.
