Which WEBshops Should I Participate In?
Arctic International LLC Offers a Variety of WEBshops and Workshops to Assist Your Institution in Achieving and Maintaining Compliance with Nonresident Alien Tax Issues.
The Comprehensive Level workshop is designed for individuals who have a basic level of understanding of nonresident alien tax issues and have worked in the area for about a year. This is a fast-paced WEBshop in which the faculty will teach the "building blocks" of this complex area of the tax law. In many cases, individuals have simply been "thrown into" this area, with no instruction -- this course is designed to take someone back to the basics and learn the most efficient manner to approach this issue. There will be faculty instruction, practical examples, and case studies for each class, as well as time for individual questions. By the end of the WEBshop, all the steps are pulled together to ensure attendees get all the details, yet still see the big picture.
But the Comprehensive Course does not end after the online classes - the WEBshop continues on... Comprehensive Course registration allows participants access to ICE (Information, Communication, and Exchange) for one month after the WEBshop is completed - giving you another learning opportunity to build on your nonresident alien tax compliance knowledge base even after the WEBshop is over!

All Comprehensive Course WEBshop participants are required to have the Volume One, 2018 edition; participants may purchase one at the time of their WEBshop registration if they do not already have one; participants from the same institution may share a book.

This WEBshop will assist you and your institution in efficiently and effectively preparing for year-end! We will discuss the things you can do now to ensure that year end arrives smoothly. The reporting at year should tell a "story" about the individual and his or her relationship with the withholding agent. This WEBshop is designed to alert participants to the information that must be collected, tracked and tested in order to ensure a smooth reporting process.
The Focus - Process Course provides rules and regulations relating to payments made to nonresident aliens by looking at different categories of income paid through ALL payment systems at an institution - payroll, accounts payable and student accounts. Many of our attendees deal only with ONE category of income or payments through ONE payment system. This WEBshop course is designed for those participants with responsibilities related to a specific category of income or a specific payment system. The segments are scheduled to allow for independent study between each class. Each 75 minute segment includes 55 minutes of instruction and 20 minutes of case study and Q&A.
The Tax Basics course is about Understanding How the Code, Regs, Rulings, Procedures, Publications and Notices Interact!

These sessions will focus on discussions of current tax issues, including, but not limited to immigration issues for the tax/payroll professional, other nonresident alien tax issues, and general tax issues affecting tax-exempt organizations. Participants will have a chance to ask in-depth questions about situations happening at their institutions and to discuss more complex issues with the faculty and guest speakers, who are experts in their field. What a great opportunity to join other workshop participants in discussing the issues you face on a day-to-day basis!
