Protect Your Assets

You have worked hard, made sacrifices and accumulated some good assets and investments, so it’s natural to  protect them as much as possible from exposure to creditors. This is where PJT can help you.

How much your assets are protected depends on the way you structure the ownership of assets. That is, ensuring they're owned in the right names or entities. The ways in which assets can be owned include companies, trusts, partnerships and superannuation - all of which offer different benefits and tax ramifications.

There are many areas to consider when it comes to Protecting Your Assets. If you are restructuring ownership of assets to remove them from creditors, as under specific bankruptcy and liquidation laws, these transactions can be unwound. You must also be careful when transferring assets between entities - you could be subjecting yourself to additional taxes such as stamp duty and capital gains tax.

PJT will help you gain an understanding of the benefits of each entity and can guide you around any potential pitfalls. PJT has a wealth of experience in this area and can structure a plan to best suit your needs through its services provided under PJT Accountants & Business Advisors, and PJT Financial Services. More information on the services of PJT Financial Services can be found here.
