Giving Ownership Interests in Private Companies

Whether you have ownership in a Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Corporation, Sub-chapter S Corporation or other privately held company, you can redirect all or part of the value of that ownership into bringing the love of God to people in Latin America, whether you’re ready to sell the business or still wish to manage it.

Through The Signatry, we can help you evaluate the potential of making a gift of this type, and assist in the transfer, management and/or sale of the gifted business asset – allowing you to avoid capital gains tax, remove it from your estate and receive a charitable deduction for the appraised fair market value of the gift. The Signatry will work with you to accomplish your charitable goals in the most tax-efficient, cost-efficient and timely way.

Practically Speaking

Here is what you could potentially save in taxes and increase giving by compared to selling the business and then giving. This example shows the impact if a family sold their business for $10 million, and made a 20% gift either before or after the sale.

This scenario assumes fair market value of $10,000,000, ordinary income tax rate of 37%, capital gains tax rate of 25%, and basis of $0.

By The Numbers
