Modern Captive Structures - Taxation and Accounting

About This Course:
In 2002, the Internal Revenue Service issued a number of Revenue Rulings and other guidance that clarified several major aspects of its position on the tax outcome of captive insurance planning (though many issues still remain).

Combining this with a push in the industry to lower the overall cost of setting up and administering the program, captives have recently become a new planning tool for mid-sized closely held businesses. Given the influx of new captives, it is important you understand how the captive insurance company will be treated and how it interacts with the operating businesses.

This webinar will provide an overview of the modern captive insurance structures being utilized and will discuss the tax characteristics of the insurance company and how both the operating company and the insurance company should be treated from an accounting perspective. We will review 831(b) elections that can be applicable to smaller captives and we will review the regulatory requirements that are common to most domiciles.
