With the real-estate recovery gaining momentum, I have noticed that 1031 exchanges have been picking up and thought I would take some time to remind people how best to prepare for a 1031 exchange.

A 1031 exchange is a great way for companies to defer capital gains taxes when they replace their relinquished assets for new like-kind assets. By using a 1031 exchange, companies are able to leverage their capital by using the money that would have gone to taxes, towards their new like-kind investments. However, despite careful planning, it is common for exchanges to take an unexpected turn; companies can struggle to sell a relinquished property or to identify a new one, or a forward exchange needs to be changed to a reverse. When these situations occur, the exchange documentation may need to be modified, taking a great deal of time and additional expenses.

A successful 1031 exchange takes careful selection of a qualified intermediary (QI); it is important for companies to work with a skilled team who is able to restructure account documentation at the last minute. An experienced and capable QI knows how to structure your exchange best, to handle last-minute developments efficiently and cost-effectively.
