Nearing the end of 2021, investment managers will likely reflect on lessons learned from potential legislation, unprecedented government stimulus, and a global pandemic—all of which created uncertainty. What are the critical areas to look at, and what approaches should be considered for both finalizing tax year 2021 and beginning tax year 2022 planning? We’ll discuss:
- Tax planning in a rate-raising environment
- Carried interest planning
- Changes to cross-border investing rules
- New reporting requirements for tax year 2021
