Course Description

This program was recorded on June 19th, 2019

This course will cover the various types of asset protection trusts available to business owners, both domestic asset protection trusts (DAPT) and offshore asset protection trusts (FAPT). In addition, there will be a detailed discussion on the benefits of holding the family business in a Section 678 Trust for Asset Protection purposes.

  • The most critical decision to make from an Asset Protection point of view is choosing the business entity.
  • While some entity types may make business and economic sense, they provide no asset protection for business owners.
  • Business owners often utilize various different types of asset protection trusts, whether DAPT or FAPT.
  • Holding the family business in a Section 678 Trust not only plans for business succession, and minimizing estate taxes, but also provides asset protection for business owners.
