BILL OF SALE, DEMAND NOTE, MOTOR VEHICLE TRUST REGISTRATION AND LEASE AGREEMENTS
BILL OF SALE & DEMAND NOTE
The Bill of Sale is a document that is used to sell/transfer ownership of assets from one person/entity (e.g., revocable trust, LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp) to a trust. The seller does not necessarily have to be you, anyone can sell assets to your trust. A list of all assets should be created and attached to the Bill of Sale. This list will be called “Exhibit A”. This document requires notarized signatures and should be kept in your trust book.
The Demand Note is a return of capital, a note payable from the trust with no fixed term or repayment schedule. The Demand Note is used to take money from the trust tax free and is normally taken for expenses that the trust won’t cover (clothing, vacation, etc.). Every time that money is taken from the trust for things that the trust won’t cover, it will reduce your demand note. This document requires notarized signatures and should be kept in your trust book.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRUST REGISTRATION
The Motor Vehicle Trust Registration document is a form that is used to transfer a vehicle(s) from the seller to the trust. It does not necessarily have to be filed with your local DMV. However, if it is convenient to file, then please do so. This document requires notarized signatures and should be kept in your trust book.
EQUIPMENT LEASE AGREEMENT
The Equipment Lease Agreement for business equipment is used by companies when they have transferred/sold their assets from their business to their beneficial trust, and subsequently need to lease the assets back to the business for a monthly lease amount.
COMMERCIAL PROPERTY LEASE AGREEMENT
The Commercial Property Lease Agreement is used when real property has been transferred to the trust, and subsequently needs to be leased back to a business for a monthly lease amount.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LEASE AGREEMENT
The Intellectual Property Lease Agreement is for individuals who have tangible and intangible intellectual property that have been transferred to the trust, such as copyrights, trademarks, websites, marketing plans, etc. These tangible and intangible intellectual property assets can also be leased back for a monthly lease amount.
A Bill of Sale and Demand Note for Intellectual Property must also be completed. The value of assets depends on any actual expenses in developing the intellectual property.
