Telos Capital

Telos Capital helps advisors get more business sales completed by enabling business owners to defer taxes on their sales proceeds through a 453 Exchange, which minimizes their tax exposure and maximizes the profitability of their exit.

Telos Capital also guarantees the business owner a strong rate of return during their tax deferral. The 453 Exchange is backed by a tax opinion from the world’s largest tax law firm and avoids problematic trust structures like the Private Annuity Trust or Deferred Sales Trust.
