ELFA to Host Free Webinar on Effects of Tax Reform on Industry
JAN 10, 2018 - 6:48 am
The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association is hosting a free 90-minute webinar to examine the impact of new tax reform legislation on the $1 trillion equipment finance industry on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST
President Trump recently signed H.R.1, a law that makes the most sweeping tax code changes in decades. One thing is clear; the new law does not impact the entire equipment leasing and finance industry in the same manner. The effects of these changes will depend on everything from corporate structure, to whether a business is predominantly in leasing or financing, to the industries of its customers.
A panel of industry experts will discuss the impacts of the bill on the equipment leasing and finance industry. Topics will include:
Corporate rate reduction
100% expensing of new and used equipment
Fiscal year issues
Accounting Issues (GAAP & tax conformity)
Section 179 expansion
Tax indemnification clauses
Energy tax credits
Deferred tax assets
Taxation of pass throughs
The webinar will be presented by Joseph Sebik, chair of the ELFA Federal Tax Committee; David Burton, partner at Mayer Brown and Andy Fishburn, ELFA vice president of Federal Government Relations. Additional panelists will be added.
