Premier will make you look fantastic to your clients

Premier Administration can show you how to put 40% or more under management for those clients wanting to invest capital gain assets into investment income producing assets. (See Who Can Benefit?) This is because they don't have to pay taxes on trust assets, it all gets to be invested.  On a typical asset worth $1,000,000 you will be investing about $1,100,000 instead of only $780,000.  You'll be a hero to your clients and your extra income won't hurt either.

Making sure your client’s CRT is administered properly is just as critical to achieving their goals as making the CRT decision in the first place!

You want to make sure that the strategy you have suggested to them works the way it is supposed to – for their sake and for yours. They expect a hassle free income stream. And you need a satisfied client, with a worry free retirement income.

How do you get that? With an extremely knowledgeable and experienced partner – Premier Administration. We’ll provide timely distributions, impeccable compliance with all tax laws and frequent, easy to understand reports. All at the best price in the industry.

The IRS and the courts have made it very clear - to get the benefit of a Charitable Trust it must be operated properly. In other words, after a trust is in operation, COMPLIANCE is critical. Premier is there to make sure you and your clients have all the information, records, and systems necessary to assure full compliance with the tax laws.

Trust administration is complex. Frankly, only a very few CPAs or attorneys are really experienced and set up to handle charitable trust administration. That is the reason a special firm exists just to handle this one responsibility. Proper administration includes:

• Two kinds of accounting!
      o Trust Accounting – based on the trust state law as well as GAAP
      o Tax Accounting – based on specific rules developed by the IRS and Congress specific to these trust
• Complete and accurate record keeping
• Liaison with the client’s investment professionals and the fund custodians
• Distributions: calculation of the amount and transfer of funds to client
• Reporting: quarterly and year end reports
• Preparation of year end documents including K-1 forms
• Preparation of tax returns, both state and Federal

When you work with Premier you also get:

• Access to the principals, an attorney and a tax-accountant/MBA with over 50 years combined experience with Charitable Trust administration
• A firm that is happy to provide you with one-on-one consultations on case design, and to review your investment selections from the particular tax perspective unique to CRTs

Did you know that if you select the wrong investment vehicle your client could lose their income tax deduction? Or cause a tax-exempt trust to pay tax on its income? Premier is always there at the other end of the telephone to help you make sure you are maximizing the trust’s benefits for your client.
