C Corporation to S Corporation Conversion


Here is a brief overview from AICPA: The excess of the FMV of assets over their adjusted basis at the time of the S election is built-in gain. Any of this built-in gain recognized during the 10-year period beginning with the first day of the first tax year for which the corporation was an S corporation remains subject to corporate-level tax. Only the excess of the FMV of those assets over their respective tax basis is subject to this corporate-level tax. Post-election appreciation is subject to only one level of taxation. Therefore, it is essential that an appraisal of all assets be performed at the time of the S election to document the assets on hand and to keep track of their future sale.




Lease Buyouts


If at the end of a lease term the value of the equipment on the lease may be acquired by the lessee and there is a question about the value of equipment being acquired, our Equipment Appraisals offer a means to establish a value for the equipment that is impartial, unbiased, and independent. Our appraisal reports can save time and money by reducing disputes over the value of the equipment.
