Planning to Obtain Tax Free Treatment in Business Combinations - 1 CLE hour


One of the biggest challenges of structuring a business combination is ensuring that transaction is tax-free or that taxes are minimized to the fullest extent possible.  Combining two or more corporations – C Corps or S Corps, or a mix – have a range of transactional formats – asset deals versus stock deals, stock deals treated as asset deals, etc. – and widely varying tax tradeoffs.  Even more challenging are those transactions involving the combination of corporate and non-corporate entities, such partnerships or LLCs.


These “inter-species” transactions require structural ingenuity and a thoughtful understanding of the tradeoffs involved.  Also very important to these deals are the issues involving the new 3.8% tax on “Net Investment Income” and how state and local sales/use taxes may apply to business combinations. This program will provide non-tax specialists with a practical guide to structuring business combinations to achieve a tax-free or tax-favored outcome.
