Dueling Crypto Banjos: Two Very Different Reactions to Treasury’s Proposed Crypto Reporting Scheme

October 25, 2023

Treasury recently delivered a mother lode of proposed tax reporting rules to the crypto industry.  By and large, the crypto industry is booing loudly, complaining that the rules are overbroad and that there is not enough time to implement reporting systems—January 1, 2025 (reporting of gross proceeds of digital asset sales) and January 1, 2026 (reporting of tax basis and character for digital asset sales).  On the other hand, Senator Warren (and others) are cheering loudly, urging an even faster timeline for implementing crypto tax reporting.

AIFMD II and Loan Origination Funds

November 16, 2023

On 6 November 2023, the Council of the European Union published its long anticipated final compromise text ‘as regards delegation arrangements, liquidity risk management, supervisory reporting, provision of depositary and custody services and loan origination by alternative investment funds’ amending AIFMD and UCITS directives (AIFMD II). This note considers what are entirely novel requirements attaching to loan origination activities by alternative investment funds (AIFs) and their implications for credit funds once AIFMD II is fully in force, though it is worth pointing out at this stage that little has changed since the publication of the “final” compromised text on 1 June 2022 beyond some movement to increase flexibility, particularly in relation to the leverage limit for closed-ended funds.
