International Tax Issues 2016

Hosted By: Practising Law Institute

Why You Should Attend

As the world’s economies grow increasingly integrated, the international tax laws of the U.S. impact a greater percentage of businesses and transactions. These international tax rules affect not only large US and foreign-based multinationals, but also increasingly affect mid-sized and smaller firms, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other commercial activity. As a result, a working knowledge of these international tax rules is of paramount importance to a wide variety of tax professionals.

At this year’s program we will assemble some of the world’s leading experts and senior government officials to discuss the complex rules of U.S. international taxation. We will focus upon both operational and transactional implications of these rules, and will describe the application of the rules to both U.S. and foreign-based entities.
