Tax Analysis and Information Reporting for Debt Investments (TARDI) Services
The credit crisis, setbacks in the mortgage industry, and efforts by the government and private sector to restore liquidity and revive the markets have resulted in both challenges and opportunities for investors in debt. Debt investment assets have included performing, subperforming and nonperforming mortgage loans, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and asset-backed securities (ABS), as well as commercial and consumer loans and corporate debt. A single investment can consist of thousands of such loans and debt instruments, and owners often do not understand the ongoing tax analysis, information reporting, and reconciliations with financial results that should be performed. Additional challenges may arise if federal assistance and loss guarantees have been provided.
Traditional tax accounting that employs spreadsheets or similar applications may not be sufficient to access and track the large volumes of data associated with these investments on a highly detailed loan-level basis, let alone generate the appropriate reports.
TARDI’s advanced tax database technology, together with our experienced and dedicated client service team, provide valuable resources for owners of debt instruments. Our professionals understand the complex tax issues owners of debt face and the importance of accuracy and timeliness in the efforts to manage compliance risk and exposure to penalties and interest.
