TAXATION OF FINANCIAL PRODUCTS AND TRANSACTIONS, NEW YORK, JANUARY 14, 2019
Why you should attend
The 2017 Tax Act substantially changed the landscape for many areas of tax practice, and the world of financial products is no exception. This year’s program has been completely re-designed to examine the parts of the Act that most closely affect financial products tax practitioners, including the new limitation on interest deductions under Section 163(j), the uncertain scope of Section 451(b), and the base erosion anti-abuse tax (the “BEAT”). We will also discuss familiar concepts that continue to be relevant in the post-2017 Tax Act world.
Who Should Attend
Attorneys at law and accounting firms who advise clients on financial transactions and products; in-house tax professionals who help structure transactions and make ASC 740 determinations; hedge fund traders who want a better understanding of the tax rules governing financial products and transactions; accountants who work in the area of financial products; people who advise hedge fund managers, banks, and insurance companies; and government attorneys who want to stay on top of what’s happening in the capital markets will benefit from attending this program.
