In addition to ESOPs and rollups, Cendrowski Corporate Advisors’ tax specialists can also assist with generational management buyouts from past ownership to new owners or middle management using tax-efficient strategies, including compensatory transfers like non-qualified stock options and carried interests.
Cendrowski Corporate Advisors has assisted businesses with tax-efficient “nonqualified” deferred compensation strategies, i.e., plans other than IRAs or 401(k)s. We have collaborated with counsel in developing plans which meet the qualifications of IRC 409A compliance in order to avoid the excise tax levied on plans that fail to comply with the rigors of section 409A compliance.
Client Success Story: Creating a Tax-Efficient Stock Acquisition Program
Cendrowski Corporate Advisors was engaged by a professional services firm to establish a succession plan for the middle management of the company, who were to acquire the interests of the senior management shareholders. Along with corporate counsel, our team developed a tax-efficient stock acquisition program. The plan, which included assistance locating alternatives to seller financing, served as the basis for transitioning ownership of the professional services firm from one generation to the next.
