Corporate treasury professionals have received another extension for filing foreign bank account reporting forms, or FBARs. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has again extended the deadline. The due date for FBAR reporting is April 15 (Tax Day) of the year following the December 31 report end date. If a company does not file its FBAR by April 15, it will receive an automatic extension of six months to October 15 of the same calendar year.
Corporate tax reform is here. But will the changes cause corporates to substantially shake up their investment plans, using some of the extra cash they have on hand to expand and hire more people? The tax bill reduced the corporate tax rate to 21 percent. While proponents of the bill posit that lowering the rate on repatriated earnings would cause corporations to invest that money in the United States, there has been speculation that companies are much more likely to return money to shareholders.
According to the True Cost of Fraud Study by LexisNexis, fraud as a percentage of revenues for merchants increased from 1.32 percent to 1.47 percent last year. “The annual cost of fraud at organizations is on the rise, and I’m sure with some of the data breaches we’ve seen recently, we’re going to see a pretty big uptick in the next year as well,” said Austin O’Brion, co-founder of identity verification technology firm Token of Trust.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
