Deutsche Bank today announced it has been appointed as Qualified Intermediary (QI) on Toyota Motor Credit Corporation’s like-kind exchange program.
A like-kind exchange is also known as a 1031 exchange, referring to section 1031 in the Internal Revenue Code. A like-kind exchange is a way of deferring capital gains taxes by reinvesting proceeds from a sale into a like-kind asset. This structure is frequently used in the automotive, aircraft, equipment and real estate industries. In accordance with section 1031 a taxpayer must appoint a Qualified Intermediary on such transactions in order to appropriately comply with the tax code.
Kevin Plein, Managing Director within Deutsche Bank’s Global Transaction Banking (GTB) division said, "We are pleased to have been selected by Toyota for our high quality and integrated Qualified Intermediary solution and welcome Toyota as a like-kind exchange client. We have seen quite an influx of these programs over the past 12 months and look forward to transitioning more program exchange clients in 2010.”
Deutsche Bank entered the Qualified Intermediary business because of a market need for a strong, stable and committed bank provider of like-kind exchange services. It is a regulated financial institution which holds like-kind exchange assets in segregated trust accounts for added client security.
The Bank has been appointed on a number of significant mandates for Fortune 500 companies, amongst others, and is now a leader in providing Qualified Intermediary services for like-kind exchange programs.
