January 09, 2020

At an open meeting held on November 25, 2019, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the “CFTC”) adopted two sets of final rule amendments to its Part 4 regulations governing commodity pool operators (“CPOs”) and commodity trading advisors (“CTAs”). These amendments finalize a subset of the Part 4 amendments the CFTC proposed last fall. The amendments were effective as of January 9, 2020. Required actions and compliance dates for each component are provided in the article linked below.

FREE: ACG Webinar: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and Wayfair: Their Impacts on Private Equity
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 1:00-2:00 P.M.

Since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted two years ago, the IRS has issued numerous interpretations and regulations that provide clearer guidance on what many areas of the new tax law means to private equity funds and their portfolio companies. In addition, as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Wayfair vs. South Dakota case, many states are refining their economic nexus standards and have begun applying them to areas beyond sales tax.

From this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn more about key provisions in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that impact deals
  • Better understand tax structuring opportunities that maximize return on investment
  • Become aware of the impacts economic nexus may have on state and local tax filing requirements

Join us on January 23 as our experts discuss the TCJA and Wayfair and the opportunities and implications they have on private equity and their portfolio companies. Attendees can ask questions during the webinar. Speakers from Plante Moran will include: Nevra Kreger, Brett Bissonnette, Tony Israels and Jeremy Sikkema.
