Overview (Program Summary)

What should in-house lawyers spend time discussing with their chief financial officers (CFOs)? What are the most important tax developments affecting businesses today? In this program, we’ll review the key tax issues that impact your business and how you can mitigate risks. We are pleased to be joined by BDO USA’s Associate General Counsel, Charis Runnels.

Topics will include:
•    Key things to know about potential changes to the tax law/issues to consider with a remote workforce
•    Risk management – insurance renewals in a hardening market/opportunities for a captive insurer
•    Doing business in Chicago and the unexpected tax challenges  
•    How to get money back from the government for Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)-related costs
