Opportunity Zone Fund Administration 2018-09-20T05:32:14+00:00

Fund Administration Purpose-Built
For Opportunity Zone Funds

A Robust Opportunity Requires Robust Administration

Opportunity Zone Funds hold tremendous potential for fund managers, investors and economically distressed communities. But they demand careful administration and rigorous oversight — the more so since this asset class is brand new, and regulatory guidance is still a work in progress.

At NES Financial, our expertise in supporting and tracking complex tax-deferred investments and government-regulated investment programs, such as the EB-5 immigrant investor program and 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, combined with our institutional-quality private equity fund administration capabilities, uniquely positions us to help Opportunity Zone Fund managers navigate this rapidly evolving marketplace.

Moreover, we’ve developed a purpose-built, technology-enabled Opportunity Zone Fund Administration Solution that delivers the highest levels of investor transparency, regulatory compliance and operating efficiency.

What is an Opportunity Zone? 2018-08-21T17:46:06+00:00

An Opportunity Zone is an economically distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, are eligible to create tax benefits for investors. Localities qualify as Opportunity Zones if they have been nominated for that designation by the state and that nomination has been certified by the Internal Revenue Service, acting on behalf of the Secretary of the Treasury. The Opportunity Zones certification process is now complete.

What areas have qualified as Opportunity Zones? 2018-08-21T20:19:16+00:00

Economically challenged communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and US territories — including the entire island of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the US Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa — have qualified. Rural, urban and suburban areas have all qualified as Opportunity Zones. To determine whether an area is included within an Opportunity Zone, please click here to open the Department of the Treasury Community Development Financial Institutions Fund webpage, which has a complete list and map of the zones.

What capital gains are eligible for the Opportunity Zones tax benefits? 2018-08-21T17:48:52+00:00

Capital gains that are realized through the sale or exchange of appreciated property are eligible for the tax benefits, provided that those amounts are invested in an OZ Fund within 180 days of the date of the sale or exchange. Any additional amounts invested in excess of the realized capital gains are not eligible for any tax benefits. There is no tracing of funds and, unlike Section 1031, the taxpayer may take possession of the funds prior to investing them in an OZ Fund.

The OZ Funds rules seem very complicated — when can I expect to see the IRS clarify these rules? 2018-08-21T17:50:07+00:00

The IRS is expected to issue some initial guidance in the form of proposed and temporary regulations shortly, which will address some of the basic issues, such as the self-certification process and who is considered the taxpayer eligible to make the investment in the OZ Fund. Due to the complexity of the OZ Funds legislation, it is expected that additional sets of regulations will be issued as well.
