Inversions: New Rules, Continued Challenges
1 PM GMT
In September the Treasury Department and IRS announced that they will adopt new rules, with effect from September 22, intended to limit the tax advantages of “inversion” transactions. These rules address both the inversion transactions themselves and the post-closing tax benefits to inverted companies. The rules also address some issues that practitioners were concerned could have led to “accidental” inversions. The panel will discuss the new rules and consider their effects, after which we will conclude by addressing some continuing challenges and possible “accidental inversions” that remain under the new rules.
