New York, NY, April 26, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Laurence Wagman, Founding Principal, Golden Parachute Tax Solutions LLC will speak at a webcast entitled: “The Golden Parachute Rules: Tips and Strategies to Mitigate Impact on Your Bottom Line LIVE Webcast.” This webcast is scheduled on May 10, 2018 at 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET).
When a private or public company undergoes a change in control, if excessive payments are made to certain executives, and such payments are determined to be made in connection with a change control (often referred to as golden parachute payments), such payments are subject to additional tax penalties under Internal Revenue Codes Sections 280G and 4999. Golden Parachute Payments may include severance payments, benefits, deal bonuses, acceleration of vesting of equity (including stock options, restricted stock and other short or long-term incentive awards) and any other cash or non-cash benefit to the Executive that was triggered by the change in control. Although these tax penalties can be severe, if Companies take appropriate action in the design of their compensation arrangements, such penalties can be significantly reduced or avoided entirely.
In this Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will help companies understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the golden parachute payment rule and will also offer best tips and strategies in mitigating its impact to businesses’ bottom line.
Key topics include:
· Golden Parachute Rule – An Overview
· Recent Trends and Developments
· Best Governance Practices
· Impact to Businesses’ Bottom Line
· 280G Mitigation Techniques
