Changes to Form 1120 and Form 1065: Best Practices and Strategies for Corporate Tax Executives and Advisors


LIVE Webcast


Summary:

The IRS is going to require substantial ownership documentation on Forms 1120 and 1065 filed in 2009. Additionally, for Form 1065, the IRS issued revisions to Schedules B, C, and K-1. Under this new guidance, companies will be required to provide enhanced transparency with respect to their positions in affiliated companies, and how they manage transfer pricing and other related accounting issues. The new guidance also steps up the reporting requirements of partnerships requiring them to provide much more detail with respect to how much each party owns and how they report certain kinds of debt.

During this live webcast, our team of tax experts will walk you through each form helping you to understand what’s new and what’s important. To keep you on track, we’ll also walk you through some of the most significant compliance issues. Corporate tax executives and advisors need to understand how to address the challenges that come with these revisions and how to plan compliance. The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help companies understand these new changes. The speakers will share their expert opinions in a two-hour LIVE Webcast.
