Topic: Captive Insurance Companies sponsored by Compass Consulting, P.A.
This presentation is an introduction to the world of Captive Insurance Companies ("CICs' or "Captives"). The focus of the presentation will be on how CICs can be used by business owners to both create wealth and to provide for the tax efficient transfer of wealth all while cost effectively and tax efficiently covering liability and casualty risks they normally self-insure or spend too much to procure. For many professionals, CICs are either an unknown or an area misunderstood to be a tax haven for unscrupulous promoters. Mr. Webb will attempt to unveil many of the mysteries surrounding CICs and present them as a planning opportunity that every estate planner, financial planner, and accountant should be cognizant of for his or her high net worth clients.
