Re-evaluating your choice of entity after tax reform

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1 free CPE credit.

Most pass-through businesses consider their entity structure only once, at the time of formation. However, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has taken the traditional rules and turned them upside down. Corporate tax rates have been slashed from 35 percent to 21 percent while pass-through businesses such as S corporations and partnerships may now qualify for a new pass-through deduction that would effectively cut their tax rates from 39.6 percent to 29.6 percent.

Re-evaluating your entity structure has never been more important.

Join us on Tuesday, March 20 at 1 p.m. EDT as we discuss how tax reform has transformed the playing field for pass-through entities. During this 60-minute webcast, we will discuss:

  • Why should I remain an S corporation, effectively paying a 29.6 percent tax rate, if I can get a 21 percent tax rate as a C corporation?
  • Can my partnership convert to C corporation status and enjoy the lower corporate tax rate?
  • ·Are there issues beyond the annual tax savings I should be considering?
  • What role do state and international considerations play in this decision?

Border Crossings with EY transfer pricing and tax professionals

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1.5 free CPE credit.


The international tax law changes introduced by the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) will require both US companies and foreign multinationals with US operations to reconsider the transfer pricing implications to their operations and related structures.

To assist companies with this analysis, the third webcast in our three-part series on the transfer pricing implications of the TCJA will focus on the potential cross-border controversy aspects of the new law. Specifically, the webcast will cover the reactions by some foreign tax authorities, particularly the European Union, with respect to certain provisions of the TCJA. Reactions include issues raised in connection with:

  • The potential double taxation and/or treaty discrimination caused by the base erosion and anti-abuse tax (BEAT)
  • Whether foreign-derived intangible income (FDII) creates a potential regime that may be inconsistent with Action 5 of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project

The webcast will also provide an update on global transfer pricing controversy trends, focusing specifically on the ongoing implementation of BEPS Actions 8-10, 13 and 14 around the world, and how companies are reacting to the changing multi-country global controversy environment.
