Preparing the annual tax forms for a small business seems to become more complex every year. There are S corporations, LLCs and partnerships and sole proprietorships. On top of that, practitioners need to be well versed in a variety of other forms affecting businesses – Entity classification elections, qualified subchapter S subsidiary elections, and self-employment taxes to name just a few. And then there’s Obamacare and all of the new forms that it added. Join our panel of experts as they review the 1120S (S corporation), the 1065 (partnership), the 1040 Schedules C (sole proprietor) and SE (self-employment tax), the 8832 (entity classification election), the 8869 (qualified subchapter S subsidiary election), and the 1095 series (Health Insurance Marketplace Statement, Health Coverage, and Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Insurance) and how those feed into other forms such as the 8962 (Premium Tax Credit) and 8965 (Health Coverage Exemption).
**This course is approved by the IRS. The submission of a completed request form, found under the materials tab, is required for credit.

Shrinking IT budgets and fierce competition among software publishers have created explosive growth in the incidence and frequency of software audits - a mechanism by which software publishers investigate their customers to determine if they are in compliance with software licenses and copyright laws. In addition to developing internal enforcement operations, many publishers have engaged trade associations to perform enforcement activity under power of attorney. Many companies are paying substantial fines and suffering negative publicity. Properly preparing for and responding to software audits can reduce the financial and organizational impact on your business. Businesses that are most prepared and properly represented will have the greatest success in defending the inevitable software audit.
This CLE* will cover:

Dan McCurdy, Senior VP at RPX Corporation, and Jennifer Wuamett, Deputy GC IP and Litigation at NXP Semiconductors, join Nigel Swycher, Aistemos CEO, in our upcoming webinar 'Examining the rise and rise of the intangible asset' on Wednesday the 1st of February.
Compared with just 17% in 1975, the latest research now estimates that more than 80% of a company’s value is derived from its intangible assets.
This dramatic, and continuing rise, was the inspiration for our IP Strategy Survey, the results of which are currently being published in a series of reports.
To accompany these publications, we are hosting a series of webinars to debate the current trends as IP increasingly becomes a boardroom issue.
In this webinar, which takes its name from our first report, Nigel will discuss with Dan and Jennifer:
• The importance of intangible assets to corporate value
• What is IP strategy, and how best to integrate it with business strategy
• How boards approach IP strategy and how this is changing
Over the course of 20 minutes you will hear how IP strategy is fast becoming an integrated part of mainstream business strategy and why this can’t happen soon enough.
(If you can’t make it for the webinar, register anyway and we’ll send you a recording)
