The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Teleconference on FAS 109: FIN 48 – Accounting for Uncertain Tax Positions – for Fund Managers


New York, NY, June 08, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused teleconferences, has announced today that it has scheduled a live teleconference and webinar on FAS 109: FIN 48 – Accounting for Uncertain Tax Positions – For Fund Managers. This two-hour event is scheduled on Wednesday, September 3, 2008 at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT – New York).

Due to difficulties in meeting the compliance deadline, the FASB has postponed the operation of FIN 48 for private entities and hedge funds. Conflicts with the implementation, as well as the imposition of withholding taxes are just two of the issues the aforementioned entities are facing these days. That’s all about to change. This teleconference and webinar will aim to provide private entities and hedge funds insights on how to systematically approach FIN 48 in their organizations. The Knowledge Congress has assembled a panel of distinguished experts to discuss what these approaches are and how to avoid future conflict with the government.

Speakers/Faculty Panel

Brian Moore, Senior Tax Manager of Grant Thornton

Jeff Saviano, Partner of Ernst & Young LLP

Matthew Mullaney, Tax Partner of BDO Seidman

Sang Kim, Partner of DLA Piper
