Event Synopsis:
In October 2018, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued proposed regulations that would exempt certain U.S. controlled foreign corporation (CFC) shareholders from Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 956 deemed dividend rules.

Although the proposed regulations favor many corporate taxpayers, one must not forget that section 956 still applies. Moreover, not all CFC shareholders covered by section 956 can claim the benefits of the new participation exemption. Inaction in the U.S. Congress is also limiting the scope of the relief provided by the proposed rules. This poses potential pitfalls for the unwary.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview to help you understand the critical elements of the proposed Section 956 regulations and its potential effects on corporate taxpayers. Speakers will also offer the best strategies on how to maximize the potentials of and mitigate the risks posed by the new participation exemption.

Key topics include:
• The Proposed Section 956 Regulations
• Benefits for Corporate Taxpayers
• Risk Issues and Pitfalls
• Recent Developments
• Best Practices
• Outlook
