A monthly newsletter brought to you by your Pratt and LeFevre Corporation Team
VOL. 1, ISSUE 10 October 2022


Last month we talked about how essential it is to keep records of money spent and to understand how the cash flows from the Corporation to the LLC and then to you.

Remember your Corporation is the publicly visible structure in the Pratt and LeFevre Corporation O.N.C.E. Strategy. Your LLC is private.

To recap, the corporation is the publicly visible business entity, when your asset transfers were completed, one of the contracts that were created was the Marketing and Management Agreement (MMA) this contract is between the Corporation and the LLC or LLCs. The corporation has a fiscal tax year and the LLC uses a calendar tax year. Both of them calculate their tax on a cash basis and not on an accrual basis.

During your tax strategy meeting with your Pratt and LeFevre CFO you will discuss when the corporation pays the LLC for services rendered, making it an expense to the corporation. Or, even the LLC can pay for services rendered by the corporation, also as an expense.

Please keep in mind, your corporation is a complete entity in itself. Which means, if the corporation has a loss, it stays with the corporation it is not passed on to you. If the corporation has a profit, then the corporation is subject to IRS and State taxes. If you personally are paid by the corporation, you are subject to employee taxes, this is the reason the money passes to your LLC.

The LLC is a pass-through entity, which means any loss or profits is passed to you personally. Therefore, you pay yourself by taking an owner’s draw without having to be an employee and subject to employment taxes.

This can seem very confusing and complicated. This is why it is imperative that you stay in contact with your Account Executive, your CSA, and your CFO. Make it a point today to contact them and get your appointment set before the end of November.

Question and Answers

Why can’t I just sign a quit claim on my home to my new LLC?

A Quit Claim Deed does not transfer ownership. It is just a document recorded on the property which tells anyone who looks at it that the person issuing the QCD is QUITTING their interest in the property. A Warranty/Grant Deed is the only document which legally changes ownership. The IRS has on several occasions ruled that using a QCD does not show legally that the home was sold to the LLC. The sale needs to be documented as a true sale, using a settlement statement, such as title insurance companies use and the legal documents which actually transfer the ownership. The IRS is interested in documentation. There have been occasions where clients did not document the sale/transfer correctly and the IRS did not accept the QCD as a true sale, but ruled it as a way for the individual to avoid paying taxes.
