Like-Kind Exchange Programs

Ongoing Exchanges of Depreciable Business Assets

Companies that perform multiple like-kind exchanges (LKEs) each year or that require a solution for managing more complex personal property exchanges may benefit from what is known as a master exchange program or a like-kind exchange program (LKE program).  Although Section 1031 is a seemingly simple provision, implementing an LKE program can be complex. At Accruit, we are intimately involved with the establishment, maintenance and ongoing review of your LKE program, enabling you to efficiently execute valid high-volume exchanges of assets.

Like-Kind Exchange Programs Customized for Your Business

Since 2000, the Accruit companies have provided qualified intermediary services for LKE programs to many of the largest companies in the United States, including some of the country's leading leasing and fleet management companies.  We process hundreds of thousands of LKE transactions each month for companies that span more than 20 industries. Our experience in this arena has helped us develop best practices around the design, implementation and maintenance of qualified intermediary services for LKE programs which are designed to be compliant with Rev. Proc. 2003-39.  With over 100 active like-kind exchange programs, Accruit is the nation's leading qualified intermediary for these specialized services.

LKE programs must be structured to meet the needs of each business with minimal disruption to existing business practices and relationships.  Accruit offers three types of like-kind exchange programs, each with customization options.
