ELFA to Host Free Webinar on Effects of Tax Reform on Equipment Finance Industry

January 10, 2018, 07:10 AM

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association is hosting a free 90-minute webinar to examine the impact of new tax reform legislation on the $1 trillion equipment finance industry on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, 2pm-3:30pm ET

President Trump recently signed H.R.1, a law that makes the most sweeping tax code changes in decades. One thing is clear, the new law does not impact the entire equipment leasing and finance industry in the same manner. The effects of these changes will depend on everything from your corporate structure, to whether your business is predominantly leasing or financing, to the industries of your customers. 

Hear from a panel of industry experts as they discuss the impacts of the bill on the equipment leasing and finance industry. Topics will include:

  • Corporate rate reduction
  • 100% expensing of new and used equipment
  • Interest deductibility
  • Fiscal year issues
  • Accounting Issues (GAAP & tax conformity)
  • LKEs
  • Section 179 expansion
  • Tax indemnification clauses
  • Energy tax credits
  • Deferred tax assets
  • Taxation of pass throughs

The webinar will be presented by Joseph Sebik, Chair of the ELFA Federal Tax Committee; David Burton, Partner at Mayer Brown LLP; and Andy Fishburn, ELFA Vice President-Federal Government Relations. Additional panelists will be added.
