Program Materials

This webinar will provide tax advisors with a summary of basic fund prototypes, a comprehensive review of the principal U.S. tax objectives of the general partner and the fund manager, and explain the various categories of investors in a typical fund and location of fund.

Description

The normal "flow-through" structures used by private equity funds can create U.S. tax problems for tax-exempt and non-U.S. limited partners of the private equity funds.

ATRA has significant impact on private equity deals, both in terms of investment strategy and compensation policy. Investors and fund managers must adjust their internal rate of return calculations to take into account the higher tax rates.

Our experienced panel of veteran tax advisors will identify opportunities to minimize your client's federal and state taxes when investing in private equity funds that include other differently situated investors with competing tax objectives.

Listen as our panel of tax veterans analyzes the different and sometimes competing tax preferences of fund investors and outlines best practices for minimizing tax impact and maximizing tax benefits for your client among the various investor groups of investment funds.
