Creating Liquidity: 3 Exclusive Benefits of Auctions” to attendees  (1 hour)

Dick Kiko, CEO and Broker with KIKO will provide insight on how real estate auctions can add benefits for sellers. Often misunderstood, auctions are an effective option for property owners who want to control their sale from start to finish.  This session will touch upon 3 primary benefits of auctions:

  1. Control of the Terms – Property is sold at designated time, place and “as is” with no contingencies. Buyer’s premium covers the cost of selling.
  2. Parts vs. Whole – By offering property separate then together, the sellers receive ultimate benefit from competitive bidding.
  3. Division of Interest – Transparency during estate, divorce, partnership, or corporation sales.

A Note from the Instructors:

“We have been working with our CPA partners to bring the R&D tax credit and the Employee Retention Credit out to their eligible clients,” said Michael Krajcer.  We’re looking forward to sharing some real-world examples we’ve run into that will help CPAs identify which of their clients may be eligible for one or both of these incentives.  We’ll also be touching upon the critical interplay between these two credits along with strategies for maximizing the claims.”

Many CPAs, Tax Advisors, Architects, and Real Estate Brokers are assisting their clients in the maximization of non-cash depreciation and income tax shielding through cost segregation studies,” said Craig Miller. “During the session, I’ll be available to answer questions on legal authority, IRS requirements and the Case Law that governs this niche industry.

“Accountants are often advising their clients on the best solutions for non-working capital and estate planning,” said Dick Kiko. “We partner with CPAs to showcase how KIKO’s liquidity options and advice are powerful tools to help clients reach their goals. We are excited to be an ongoing resource for accountants and look forwarded to sharing our industry insights during this educational series.”
