Welcome & Opening Remarks

Doing Private Equity Deals in the New International Tax Environment
The international tax landscape is on the cusp of a significant change, spearheaded by the OECD-led Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) project and is creating a plethora of tax risks and opportunities that can have a material impact on deal valuations and risk.

The panel will discuss how the private equity (“PE”) industry will be impacted by BEPS, specifically focusing on the key BEPS actions which are relevant for Asset Managers including PE managers. Funds will need to carefully consider their acquisition structures for potential current and future exposures. We will address the key takeaways that asset managers should implement to be proactive in anticipation of BEPS inspired changes to generate a competitive advantage for their funds. The panel will also cover the key U.S. tax hot topics for PE funds including discussion and insight regarding the impact on the industry from the recent US elections.

Section 385 Regulations
The panel will review the Section 385 regs, one of the most noteworthy reg packages issued by Treasury and the IRS in recent years. The panel will review the evolution of the regs: from the extraordinarily broad proposed regs to the recently issued final and temporary regs, which narrow the scope of the regs. The panel will discuss the important ways in which the regs continue to apply and open issues.

Tax Obstacles in Cross Border Planning

This panel will comment on practical solutions to the shifting landscape. Discussions will include options that should be considered in light of state aid challenges and the EU ATAD in addition to the need to have approaches tied into BEPS initiatives; including DEMPE and CBCR. The panel will discuss the recent UK hybrid mismatch provisions requiring restructuring group debt and IP in many cases.
