Overview

With significantly increased tax rates that came into effect for 2013 and later years, tax advisors and their business clients should consider whether the choice-of-entity decisions they have made in the past, or will make in the current year, result in the most tax-efficient business entity. Perhaps there is a better entity option for clients who made their choice-of-entity decision in a different tax environment. This program explores when, whether, and why business owners should consider changing to another entity.

Major Topics:

  • The most important issues tax practitioners should consider when advising clients regarding the choice of a business entity
  • Why is the S corporation the most commonly selected tax entity?
  • When does the simplicity of a Schedule C operating as a single member limited liability company get the job done with a minimum of complexity?
  • Are there tax and business advantages to operating as a C corporation in 2016 that would motivate a business owner to do business as a C corporation?
  • The advantages of the partnership tax rules for a multiple member limited liability company treated as a partnership
  • How to go from one tax entity to another with a minimum of legal and tax cost and hassle

Learning Objectives

  • Determine whether a client’s existing business entity is the most suitable entity choice for a business
  • Determining the tax consequences of switching from one business entity to another
  • The relative advantages and disadvantages of the available entity choices

Who should take this course:

Designed for:

Tax practitioners wishing to be current with respect to the tax advantages and disadvantages of the tax entities available to individuals and businesses in the current tax year

Prerequisite:

A basic understanding of the federal tax rules relating to C-corporation and pass-through entity income taxation
