The Treasury and the IRS are in the process of finalizing the laws concerning contract manufacturing arrangements as per the anti-deferral regime Subpart F. Set to take effect for tax years of foreign controlled companies beginning after June 30th, 2009, the new guidance aims to update and modernize the contract manufacturing regs under Subpart F. While the Regs are generally well received by tax payers, there is much confusion surrounding key areas such as: retention of the fundamental approach, clarification of personal property sale issues, and turnkey CFC’s to name a few.
A panel of key thought leaders and contract manufacturing experts will discuss the final guidance and its impact on your firm. Understanding the IRS New Contract Manufacturing Rules Live Webcast is for companies who utilize contract manufacturing arrangements seeking to understand the fundamentals of and how it may apply to their company.
