The aim of the session was to provide insight into the additional reporting and compliance requirements that come with accepting US investors or investing in US assets and to de-mystify some of the jargon surrounding it. The intention was also to provide insight into the latest Biden tax changes and their impact on funds.

Who was it aimed at:

  • People in finance or tax roles with European LP funds that have, or are targeting, US investors or that are investing in US assets.
  • Fund administrators, lawyers or local tax advisers whose fund clients have US connections

Topics that were covered:

  • How do I structure my fund to accept US investors?
  • What is a PFIC, and who needs to know?  
  • Who needs a K-1, and how do I provide one?  
  • Does the fund ever have to file in the US if there are no US investments?
  • Will my fund be generating UBTI, and why does this matter?
  • Changes to the rules for reporting partner capital accounts
  • How do my European investors get returns paid on time from US exits?
  • What is the role of a Partnership Representative, and do I need one?
  • How is the fund or the investors affected by Biden tax changes to carried interest and capital gains rates?
