GSA to Put On State Regulatory Workshop Pre-Telestrategies

GSA is glad to sponsor the Telestrategies’ Communications Taxation event May 13-15 at the Phoenix Biltmore in Phoenix, AZ.  In conjunction with the event GSA will offer a free State Regulatory (PUC) workshop the morning of May 13 on site.  This informative workshop will cover the following items;

Public Utility Commission Technical Filing Requirements – While many content providers and outsourced service providers focus on indirect tax, compliance with state Public Utility Commissions does not get the attention that is needed.  Your PUC license is a valuable asset of your business. Without focus on Regulatory Compliance this valuable asset can be lost or placed in jeopardy.  This Workshop will focus on the technical filing requirements of PUC compliance.

Case Study in Public Utility Compliance – Regulatory compliance issues, the rules driving commission remittances and imposition based on license type are the focus of the session.  We will also explore recent case studies and activity by the commissions to seek out non-compliant carriers.  This session will map a path, that will avoid the pitfalls of non-compliance and focus on what each licensed carrier type should be prepared for.

Licensing with the Public Utility Commission (A Company Asset) – This session will focus on the various licensing requirements for specific carrier types. The presenters will share the highlights of the process to obtain an asset license for your business, focusing on requirements, process, pitfalls, timeline and cost.
