FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

[Warrenton, VA – February 27th 2024] – In today's dynamic business landscape, where environmental liabilities pose significant challenges, the Qualified Settlement Fund (QSF) emerges as a beacon of efficiency and reliability. Contrasting against traditional Environmental Remediation Trusts (ERT), Eastern Point’s QSF offers unparalleled advantages, revolutionizing the approach towards environmental liability management.

The Qualified Settlement Fund stands as a testament to expediency, with the capability to be established and funded within a mere business day, a stark contrast to the lengthy processes associated with ERTs. By swiftly assuming environmental liabilities from present and future claims under CERCLA, state, and local law, QSF ensures immediate action and resolution.

One of the most compelling aspects of QSF is its affordability, with establishment costs as low as $500. This cost-effectiveness, coupled with the tax advantages it provides over ERTs, makes QSF an attractive proposition for businesses seeking prudent financial solutions.

Flexibility is another hallmark of QSF, allowing for single-year or multi-year funding without any maximum duration constraints, ensuring adaptability to diverse business needs. Furthermore, the ability to hold real estate expands the horizons of asset management within the fund.

The benefits extend to tax optimization, with QSF accelerating the transferor's tax deduction for funds transferred to the current tax year, thereby enhancing financial planning and efficiency.
Moreover, by shifting liability and associated funding transfers irrevocably to the QSF, businesses can streamline their balance sheets, mitigating risks and enhancing transparency.

In addition to these financial advantages, QSF facilitates seamless settlement agreements to capitate and resolve environmental liabilities, assuring regulators and interested parties of the irrevocable availability of funds for amelioration.

The transition to QSF not only eliminates future administrative burdens but also entrusts the fund's administration to a dedicated trustee, relieving businesses of operational complexities and enhancing focus on core activities.

In conclusion, the Qualified Settlement Fund stands as a beacon of innovation in environmental liability management, offering unmatched advantages over traditional Environmental Remediation Trusts. Its expediency, affordability, flexibility, and tax optimization capabilities redefine the landscape, empowering businesses to navigate environmental challenges with confidence and efficiency.
