"Tax Favored Capital - Captive and Commercial Insurance Arrangements to Maximize Capital Formation" - This course is approved by NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 1.8 CPE credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

Controlling sources of capital is vital for all businesses. Controlling an insurance company and its excess funds can finance your primary business. This webinar will reveal real-world examples of long-term, patient capital and details of state insurance laws and federal tax laws that encourage this.

By carefully choosing insurance protection written through a private insurance company called a captive, an insurance company specifically designed to build excess reserves will be under your control. This tax-advantaged source of capital can help with short term loans for operations, inventory purchases, lease equipment and vehicles, and mortgage-finance buildings and real estate, and more. And this will also drive down the cost of insurance in the process.

In this informative 90 minute webinar, participants will begin the journey to visualize how to pair commercial insurance with captive insurance arrangements to maximize the capital formation. And you will see examples of franchisors, retailers, telecommunications, distribution, manufacturers and healthcare systems have added revenues from third parties to grow their capital even more with additional tax benefits. This webinar will stimulate your thinking for using captives for capital formation.
