2016 Webinar Recording: Compliance: LDA vs IRC Filing Methods
If you are not logged in, you will see the non-member price.
Are your lobbying compliance filings raising red flags?
Filing errors are one of the main reasons organizations get audited.
By January 1, 2017, organizations must elect to file lobbying reports using either the LDA or the IRC method, and they must use that method for the entire calendar year.
There are major differences between the two in what must be tracked and reported, so understanding these differences will help you easily prevent costly mistakes.

This timely webinar will teach you how to differentiate between these filing methods. Topics include:

• How the definition of lobbying varies between the LDA and the IRC
• Why an organization would choose one method over the other
• Who is considered a lobbying contact under each method
• The differences in filing requirements for each report
• What must be disclosed — including federal, state and grassroots lobbying — and what is exempted under each method
• What types of red flags are frequently found on reports — and how to avoid them
