The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made extensive changes that can substantially affect the way your construction business operates and plans for the future. CLA’s complimentary, industry-focused webinar series is designed to cover the most critical tax reform measures so you can strategically apply the new rules, make tax-efficient decisions, and reap the legislation’s rewards now, in the future, and even retroactively to 2017.

You can attend any or all sessions and earn up to four CPE credits. Space is limited, so register early.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Recognize key changes to the depreciation and expensing rules under the TCJA compared to the pre-reform law
  • Identify techniques to make tax-efficient investments in equipment and your buildings
  • Recognize potential technical corrections Congress is evaluating related to the new depreciation laws
  • Determine whether opportunities exist to capture benefits for 2017 and prior years at the higher pre-reform tax rates.

Who should attend

These sessions are designed for CFOs, controllers, financial managers, board members, business owners, and other decision makers in the construction industries. Please register for each program at least two days before the scheduled session. Space is limited, so early registration is advised.
