October "CICR" Looks at Hints into IRS "Views" on Captives

October 02, 2018

Don't miss the October issue of Captive Insurance Company Reports (CICR), where Charles "Chaz" Lavelle, senior partner at Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, looks at two IRS documents that provide "hints" into how the Internal Revenue Service views captives.

What else is in this issue of CICR?

  • A micro-captive update from Mr. Lavelle's presentation at the 2018 North Carolina captive conference, where he reviewed Internal Revenue Code section 831(b) changes over the last year.
  • More on the settlement between Microsoft and Washington State, with insights from captive insurance tax experts concerning this settlement in the context of direct placement statutes or industrial insured statutes in other states.
  • Mike Mead, CICR's editor, provides an update from the recent Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) conference, including takeaways from David Provost, Vermont's top captive insurance regulator and insights into risk retention groups.
  • Also from the VCIA conference, Rachel Moir, captive and risk finance product manager at International Risk Management Institute, Inc., reports on a blockchain and distributed ledger technology session led by Rocco Mancini, vice president at Marsh Captive Solutions, who was joined by Carol Barton, president of AIG Multinational, and Havell Rodrigues, CEO and founder of Adjoint, Inc.
  • Mike Mead also gives insights into the reasons for a veto by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner of recent legislation (unrelated to the captive insurance provisions) designed to make captive insurance statutes more competitive with other captive domiciles.
