Course Description

This seminar will provide an overview with emphasis on taxation of Captive Insurance Companies. We will include the historical developments of the risk management use of captives and an overview of the tax authorities that have evolved over the past several decades. This course will also provide an overview of the process of formation, ownership, and management of Captive Insurance Companies.

Captives were previously the exclusive province of Fortune 1500 companies to provide insurance for risks not available in the commercial market or which are felt too expensive. In the last two decades closely held businesses have learned of and are taking advantage of the benefit of owning a Captive. We will provide an overview of the reasons why your clients should consider implementing a Captive. We will also address the different types of Captives in the marketplace.

This seminar will briefly review what a Captive Insurance Company is, the risks that are typically financed through a Captive, the regulatory and tax fundamentals required for properly establishing and operating a captive, US income taxation of Captives, and choice of domicile.
