This webinar is for tax professionals advising clients that might have to file bankruptcy or that have customers that have filed bankruptcy. We will cover the different types of bankruptcies for individuals and businesses, strategies to consider when filing, how the bankruptcy process works and what bankruptcy means to a client’s credit ability. Attendees of this webinar will also learn when a client should continue to do business with a customer that has filed for bankruptcy and has “stuck” your client and circumstances when they should, how to advise a client to circumvent filing bankruptcy and set up an informal arrangement as well as other issues clients have to deal with or are concerned about. Included will be useful checklists that could be used to advise clients. This webinar is updated with the most recent bankruptcy changes.
