Welcome to OZ: The Impact and Opportunity of Proposed Opportunity Zones Regulations

11 July 2019   Miami   4:00 - 7:00 P.M.  
Our Miami office is hosting an event that will provide insight into the newly proposed Opportunity Zone ("OZ") regulations. The qualified OZ benefit presents a significant incentive to drive economic and community development. The regulations proposed on April 17 provide new clarity for businesses and developers that are expected to lead to a flurry of OZ activity. Hear from key members of our K&L Gates OZ team about the new rules and how OZ could work for you.

Launching a new investment utilizing the benefits of the OZ program is among one of the most exciting and advantageous opportunities stemming out of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Topics will include:
  • An overview of issues addressed in the new rules
  • New OZ planning opportunities
  • The "50%" test
  • Whether commingled funds work
  • Treatment of vacant land and leased property
  • The Working Capital Safe Harbor
  • Leveraged distributions
  • Will Congress make changes to OZ?

Anyone interested in unlocking investment potential in low-income communities, including fund sponsors, investors, developers and entrepreneurs, should learn more about the OZ incentive program.
