Year-End Tax Guide 2017: Public BusinessesNo year passes without bringing changes to tax rules. Tax professionals need to stay informed, especially this year, with tax reform looming. Grant Thornton’s new Year-End Tax Guide 2017 for Public Businesses is your source for planning tips, recent tax law changes, and the important tax issues facing public companies.

Our guide organizes your planning considerations into sections covering corporate income tax, international planning, state and local taxes, executive compensation and benefit plans.

Tax reform could make year-end planning even more effective this year. The prospects for a significant rate cut creates arbitrage opportunities. This guide covers important ways businesses can accelerate deductions against today’s higher rates, while deferring income into future years when rates may be lower. Of course, tax planning goes beyond what may happen. You also have to account for what has happened.

The guide discusses the biggest tax law changes of the year. Many popular temporary tax provisions expired at the end of 2016 and have not yet been extended. New regulations created in one of the Obama Administration’s last acts could affect routine related party lending. The regulations rewrite the rules for distinguishing debt from equity. The Treasury Department has delayed the burdensome documentation requirements contained in the regulations and are considering replacing them altogether, but many of the other new rules are already in effect.
All these topics and much more are inside Grant Thornton’s Year-End Tax Guide 2017 for Public Businesses. Get your guide now to be a pacesetter in ensuring your company’s financial success.
