FBT Asset Exchanges LLC
FBT Asset Exchanges LLC is a new ancillary business for Frost Brown Todd. It assists clients and potential clients in buying and selling their business assets by deferring income taxes (otherwise known as an “Exchange”) and to increase their cash flow to promote growth and profitability. Frost Brown Todd has entered into a business alliance with a company that has incorporated recent software advances to overcome existing market obstacles that prevent approximately 95% of companies from exchanging business assets that they regularly buy and sell. The service provides a medium through which taxable gains from the sale of business or investment assets can be deferred by reinvesting the sale proceeds in similar replacement assets.
Ideal transactions for asset exchanges include equipment of all types, real estate, intellectual property and collectibles and precious metals.
The Network of Trial Law Firms, Inc. (“TRIAL.COM”)
