Insurance product taxation

EY Captive Insurance Services team can help a company analyse its risks with an eye toward whether the organisation can be placed in an insurance vehicle that will be respected as such for US or local income tax purposes. This includes looking at some of the newer and less traditional risks businesses face, or “may want, to cover, and that, absent insurance, could only be handled through self-insurance or other types of non-insurance/financial vehicles” products.
