New Rules for Distressed Debt

Join us for this Knowledge Group New Rules for Distressed Debt Webinar. The continuing economic turmoil may offer rare opportunities for investors and companies to acquire distressed debt at deep discounts. However, there are complex tax rules and information reporting requirements which govern the acquisition of distressed debts.

Tax professionals, finance executives and investors must have a comprehensive understanding of the issues when acquiring distressed debt such as tax, legal, audit and valuation. This webcast will help you maximize your returns while minimizing risk.

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of speaker experts who will share their opinions in a two-hour webcast. A live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.
