About the Program

This presentation covers the most significant tax rules that planners and clients should be aware of in making sure that a corporate separation will qualify as a tax-free event. Corporate separations typically occur when:

  • Shareholders no longer agree on the direction of the corporation,
  • Family business succession planning issues arise,
  • Shareholders want to insulate different corporate divisions from the liabilities of other divisions,
  • A corporation wants to give certain key employees an equity interest in a certain corporate division or
  • A corporation wants to consolidate certain assets that are expected to sell in the future for a higher price.
  • Failure to understand and carefully comply with the detailed tax rules to qualify as a tax-free corporate divisive reorganization will result in the entire business being treated as if it were sold.
