Private Retirement Plans are to Empower Clients without Disrupting their World.

Unlike commercially packaged plans offered by the financial services industry, Private Retirement Plans were established by California in 1970 to allow its residents to fund private assets and interests for their retirement and gain substantial creditor protection rights and tax exemption benefits.

The Industry Leader in “Exemption Planning”

Why Traditional Planning Doesn’t Work for Private Business Owners or Investors.

Traditional Planning methods require that one moves assets or cash flow away from a productive business or private investment strategy in order to gain protection or tax savings. For business owners or private investors this only translates to losing control or irrevocably giving away assets forever, which they just won’t do.

Exemption Planning does not disrupt a current Plan, it simply “exempts” assets from creditors or taxation.

The Definition of “Exempt”

     ex·empt (iɡˈzem(p)t/) adjective/verb
     1. Free from an obligation or liability imposed on others.
     2. A person or entity that is exempt from something, especially the payment of tax.

Claiming exemptions on your assets, earnings, and gains is the most powerful way to protect wealth from the erosion of frivolous lawsuits and excessive taxation. But claiming exemption rights is a unique planning process unlike any traditional means and requires a specialist to ensure ALL legitimate exemptions are being capitalized for optimum tax savings and protection benefits.

Why Exemption Planning is Stronger than Asset Protection Planning

Most of the asset protection strategies promoted today suggest “hiding” assets by transferring assets out of state or offshore, or irrevocably gifting away assets forever. These tactics are too expensive from an implementation and management standpoint and additionally the new 2015 California UVTA (Uniform Voidable Transactions Act) has closed the loop-holes for “creditor evasion” tactics and enforce asset “clawbacks” from 2-10 years and impose “fraudulent conveyance” penalties.

  • Exemption Planning is NOT Fraudulent Conveyance Per Se – instead Exemption Planning involves the purposeful recharacterization of assets by claiming various federal/state exemptions available and afforded to citizens/residents under law.

The bottom line is Exemption Planning is infinitely more cost effective and much less risky than transferring or hiding assets to evade creditors or the IRS.
