transport services

There are three tiers of buyers in the Transportation and Logistics Industry:

Private Equity Buyers can move the fastest, offer the best terms and conditions BUT are the most selective of the industry buyers.

Large regional carriers; (often backed by Private Equity) make up the second tier of buyers and handle the bulk of the transactions in the market today.

Your competitors make up the third tier and must be considered after the first two tiers have been approached.

ExampleTax Considerations

Elimination of Capital Gains Taxes under Section 1042

The deferral of capital gains taxes using Section 1042 could be turned into the elimination of capital gains taxes in their entirety.  This occurs when the seller holds the investment in QRP until death.  At that time, the QRP passes on to the seller’s heirs with a step up in basis.  As the basis in the assets is now equal to the value of the investments, there is no capital gain to tax and, therefore, no capital gains taxes due.  Please note that the overall estate, including the QRP, may be subject to Federal or state estate taxes, unless some other exemption exists.  Still, avoiding a 30% or more in capital gains tax remains attractive and offers significant savings. Check with your CPA.
