Event Details

As we approach the end of 2021 (still working from wherever!), it is a good time to take "stock" of the new developments affecting your global share plans in 2021, get ready for year-end filing requirements and consider the trends to look out for and which could keep you busy in 2022.  Barbara and Victor will bring you up to speed on the latest tax and legal developments in and outside the US, such as the continuing saga of case law in Belgium regarding social tax obligations for equity award income, the new cap on the 50% stock option deduction in Canada, the latest on the tax-favored Notice 35 treatment in China, and the SEC's decision to revisit the Dodd-Frank "clawback" requirements.  They will also give you a quick overview of the various year-end filings awaiting many of you, both tax and regulatory.  And finally, our experts will share with you what trends related to share plans have kept them busy (remote/hybrid work anyone?) in 2021 and what they see on the horizon for 2022 (hint: infrastructure legislation).
