We’re Back! And Having a Conversation with Terry Ammons

Our unannounced and unplanned summer hiatus is over, and Jonathan and I are back in the studio to provide the latest episode of The Bank Account.  Between travel for various banking conferences, a full work plate, and a few summer vacations, we stepped away from the podcasting studios for a few months (or three months exactly), but now we’re bank and re-energized!

Joining us in the studio is Terry Ammons.  Terry is a partner with Porter Keadle Moore LLC and the host of GroundBanking, PKM’s podcast on innovation in the financial industry.  If you’ve enjoyed The Bank Account, I suggest you also give GroundBanking a listen; I know I’ve enjoyed the first several episodes.

Before turning to the intersection of banking and fintech, we spend a little time on another industry focus for PKM that personally interests Jonathan and me, craft beverages.   We also each select our “rest of life” beer:  Terry selected Automatic by Creature Comforts Brewing Company, Jonathan selected a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and I went with a 420 Extra Pale Ale by Sweetwater Brewery.

Terry, Jonathan and I then turned to looking at some of the interesting interactions we’ve each seen between depository institutions and fintech companies.  We looked at the strengths of each and how partnerships can help each thrive in the 21st century.  We also examined some of the diligence items that are necessary in any such partnership.

S Corp Workshop

S Corp Workshop

May 2, 2018

Authored by: Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner

On Monday, May 14, 2018, we will be hosting, with our friends at Porter Keadle Moore, LLC and FIG Partners, an S Corp Workshop exploring issues affecting S Corp banks following adoption of the Jobs and Tax Cuts Act.

Operating as an S Corp has historically been an appealing choice for many financial institutions that have the flexibility to be taxed in a variety of ways. In light of the recent tax reform, however, an S Corp structure may not be as beneficial as it has traditionally been in the past. Whether you’re an existing S Corp considering converting, or just want to learn more about key decision points, join us as we take a deeper dive into the mechanics and calculations as well as discuss case studies on how using this election can help you thrive in today’s dynamic business environment.

Monday, May 14
7:30 am – 5:30 pm
Office of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner
One Atlantic Center, 14th Floor
1201 W. Peachtree St., N.W.
