United States: IFLR Webinar – Moving Away from the C-corporation: Understanding REITs, MLPs, PTPs, and BDCs
Last Updated: November 25 2016

Traditionally, most public companies in the US were organized as C-corporations. However, tax developments in recent years have given corporate planners a wide range of new tools to structure a public company. For example, tax pass-through MLP and REIT structures are spreading into new asset classes. Also, traditional double taxed 'C' corporations are using tax pass-through entities, including partnerships, to reduce or eliminate entity-level taxes as well as optimize their internal structures with tax 'disregarded entities'. These new tools lead to a variety of tax choices in deciding how to structure a public company.

During this briefing, which is intended for a general audience, the speakers will explain the structures, restrictions and pitfalls in this evolving hybrid world of C-corporations mixed with tax pass-throughs. Specifically, they will discuss:

  • Master limited partnerships;
  • REITs and alternative assets that may qualify as 'real estate';
  • Business development companies;
  • Consolidated groups of corporations and disregarded entities; and
  • Up-C structures.
