Tax podcast: Debt restructuring
June 1, 2020
Given the current economic climate, many companies have been in a rush for cash, leading to an upward increase in credit borrowing and corporate debt.
In this latest episode, Deloitte’s Steve Harrison and Ken Gerstel explain the significance of debt modifications and their implications on corporate debt restructuring.
I think what the tax departments probably need to start with is just a real education process as to what is a significant modification. The issue here is that a significant modification, if it arises, causes a debt instrument to be deemed satisfied and reissued for its fair market value.
