    Event Synopsis:
    In June 2016, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released separate sets of proposed regulations for Sections 409A and 457(f). The proposed regulations will provide clarifications to the Substantial Risk of Forfeiture (SROF) rules and will play vital roles in the implementation of nonqualified deferred compensation. These new regulations only entail IRS' intensified scrutiny of deferred compensation under nonqualified plans. To ward off costly tax consequences, it is important for employees, employers, tax advisers and plan sponsors to keep themselves abreast with these new requirements and standards.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the New Section 409A and 457(f) Deferred Compensation Rules, and will help them understand the critical elements of the proposals and their potential effects on the employment industry. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective risk mitigation strategies while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    Section 409A and 457(f) Deferred Compensation Rules - An Overview
    Scope and Limitations
    The Relationship between 409A and 457(f)
    Modifications in the Existing Guidance and Their Practical Implications
