O1. Remote Access: Best Practices and Lessons Learned

Speaker(s): Thomas Stephens
NASBA field of study: Information Technology - Technical (1.5)

This year, we've all learned a lot about remote access and how to work from home long-term during a crisis. For some, their emergency planning and execution was flawless. But, unfortunately, most faced challenges in the move to virtual work. If your firm's remote work setup could use some fine-tuning, attend this session to learn what it takes to better support remote team members during both good times and bad. Examine communication tools, security best practices and collaboration options to ensure your remote access deployments are successful.

O2. Centralized Partnership Audit Regime: The Decisions Made Today May Bind You Tomorrow

Speaker(s): Susan Smith
NASBA field of study: Taxes - Technical (1.5)

After 10 sets of proposed and final regulations, including technical corrections over a three-year period, where did it all land? Which 1065s can elect out? Should they? What does the audit process look like under the centralized audit regime? How much power does the partnership representative have? It's a new world of Form 1065 audits and the annual decisions made while filing the 1065 will control the audit process later. Get answers to your questions with this session as you examine the key issues you must know about to advise clients.
