Sessions covered in this On-Demand replay of the Business & Industry Fall Conference:

The Wisconsin Economy in Recovery
Through tracing the pace of Wisconsin’s economy in the recovery from the COVID-19 contraction, this session will discuss the prospects for the remainder of 2021 and the outlook for 2022, including assessing Wisconsin’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as its economy recovers.

The Next Normal: Preparing for a Post-Pandemic Fraud Risk Landscape
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way employees work and the way consumers behave. As restrictions are lifted, some procedures will revert to pre-pandemic approaches while others may be changed indefinitely. The modern organization needs to modify their approach to fraud risk management to keep up with the evolving threat landscape.

Tax Update
From Paycheck Protection Program Loans to the Employee Retention Credit to the Restaurant Revitalization Grant, recent COVID-19 relief legislation by Congress has resulted in not only unprecedented relief efforts for businesses, but also significant tax changes. This session will address the recent COVID-19 relief legislation and related tax consequences, including guidance offered by the IRS and SBA. We will also discuss the latest legislative efforts on infrastructure from the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan, including what tax changes may be enacted and potential effective dates for these changes, as well as tax planning ideas and strategies from these changes.
