This webinar provides a comprehensive look at S-corporation. It will give crucial insights about selecting the right type of corporation for your entity in turn.

This S-Corp webinar for CPA comes to you with the most recent updates of S Corporations issues. These subjects are considered crucial insights as they influence many parts of the S-Corporation operations and business outcome. 

This online CPE webinar covers following key topics:

  • Reasonable compensation for shareholder-employees.
  • The types of debt that provide the basis to shareholders.

CPAs, tax, and financial advisors are constantly facing issues regarding determining reasonable compensation. It will cover every important case and provide practical methods to calculate how much compensation is reasonable. Unlike C corporations, every year a shareholder’s stock basis in an S corporation changes based on the operations.

At the last, it will cover what happens when an S corporation is inadvertently terminated – how you can get the train back on track. 


The qualified business income deduction under section 199A is so complex that the taxpayer may incur large penalties over their tax dues instead of getting the deduction if not applied correctly with proper understanding. 

Though it is undeniable fact that under IRC 199A taxpayers have received one of the best new tax deductions from Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – i.e. new 20% qualified business income deduction. Indeed the issues in the case of Qualified Business Income Deduction is not only about learning and understanding the code, but also about making sure the tax calculations are done with accuracy. This webinar takes a deep dive into maximizing the QBID for S corporations. 

Due to numerous reasons such as economic challenges; to increase financial tax or operating efficiency; adapt to new market dynamics, or debt/loss situation, etc. take the path of drastically changing their capital structure. Such capital restructuring brings numerous accounting and tax complexities, financial reporting, and other compliances, etc. Sometimes identifying such issues in time provides you numerous advantages. In case, there is such a restructuring between an intercompany debt transaction that is aimed to provide the shareholders with more basis, how should it take place? The S-Corp CPE webinar will take the topic into a detailed discussion. Further, whether it is in the interest of the shareholders to provide the funds to the company as a loan or contribution.

This online CPE webinar covers following key topics:

  • Section 199A – special considerations for S corporations.
  • Restructuring intercompany debt to increase shareholder basis. 
  • Transferring funds to an S corporation: Are loans better than capital contributions?


Money management is an essential aspect of investing. Just like it is essential to know when to get invested, so is true for the exit. Without devising an exit strategy a shareholder may have to adjust premature profits or – in some cases – losses. Especially, in the case of an S-Corporation, this is true. Therefore, it is essential for all the shareholders to devise an exit strategy that helps them in minimizing losses and yield better profits.

The CPE webinar for CPAs will cover strategies from an S-Corporation perspective on exit strategies when clients can get ordinary losses on sales or worthless of S Corp stock, and “land banks” – using S corporations to maximize capital gains on the sale of land.
