From One Thing to Another: Business Entity Conversions & Domestication
Access Timely Topics and National Experts with CBA-CLE 1-Hour Audio Webcasts  
Program Description
Choice of entity is not a one-time decision.  Businesses change their form of entity for many reasons – the tax or economic posture of owners may change, new investors may require a different form of entity, or market or regulatory conditions may indicate a different form of entity.  Whenever an entity is converted from one form to another, significant tax liability and corporate or partnership law issues arise.  One important consideration is how to modify underlying company agreements to ensure the basic economic arrangements of the business remain intact.  This program will provide a real-world guide to entity conversions among C Corps, S Corps, partnerships and Limited Liability Companies, with extensive discussions of the tax and non-tax implications of the conversions.  
- Conversions among C Corps, S Corps, partnerships and LLCs
- Strategies for minimizing tax on conversions
- Business and organizational law considerations when converting an entity
- Drafting issues in restating underlying company agreements
- Practical and tax traps when engaging in an entity conversion
