COST’s 2020 conference for technology companies will provide 6 hours of topics which will cover the key state and local tax issues that technology companies (both start-up and established) are facing over the span of 3 days.
Partner Carley Roberts will present “Market-Based Sourcing for Tech Companies: Identifying ‘Customers’ and Locating Their ‘Benefits’” on Wednesday, August 12 at 3:05pm. During this session, the presenters will discuss the ins-and-outs of market sourcing, including how the states determine where a “customer” receives “benefits,” where intangibles are “used,” what constitutes “reasonable approximation” for identifying market locations, and more. Further, the presenters will provide essential insights for tech companies to help them maximize their apportionment results (i.e., minimize their factor).
Partner Marc Simonetti will present “IPOs, Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, & Restructurings: A Deep Dive into Transactional SALT Issues for Tech Companies” on Thursday, August 13 at 4:10pm. This panel will discuss issues in mergers & acquisitions, spin-offs, split-ups, asset distributions, and internal restructuring and entity rationalization projects specific to tech companies that you should be aware of.
