The IAPT and international LLC each have their place in our planning. Each
has its advantages and applications. For estate planning, we naturally
would use the trust as the entity of choice. But to shield smaller sums
of money we may opt for the international LLC. Most often, we use both
the IAPT and the international LLC to layer our protection. The IAPT owns
the international LLC and invests and transacts business through the LLC.
This is a fairly common arrangement.
