Structuring of installment sales – allowing the buyer to assign their obligation for the installment sale payments to a financially secure third party. Historically, Sellers of appreciated assets needed to rely on the solvency of the Buyer in order to guarantee the installment payments agreed upon during the sales process. In a structured sale the buyer assigns his or her periodic payment obligation to an assignment company in exchange for an amount of cash needed to fund those payments. The assignment company funds the payment obligation by purchasing United States Treasuries. The assignment company’s trustee begins making the payments to the seller as agreed upon under the terms of the installment sale agreement to satisfy the periodic payment obligations assumed by the Assignment Company.
If an individual is selling a business or property and are interested in a high degree of security and guaranteed income for a period of years; coupled with insulation from market volatility and economic uncertainties, a structured sale would be a great vehicle to consider.
