International Tax Issues 2018

Hosted By: Practising Law Institute

Why You Should Attend

As the world’s economies grow increasingly integrated through trade, acquisitions and joint ventures, U.S. international tax laws impact a greater percentage of businesses and transactions. These international tax rules just went through substantial revisions with the passage of U.S. tax reform at the end of 2017. These new international tax rules affect not only large U.S. and non-U.S.-based multinationals, but also affect mid-sized and smaller organizations and investors, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other commercial activity.

At this year’s program we will assemble some of the world’s leading experts and senior government officials to discuss the recent changes to 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 non-U.S.-based organizations and investors.

Topics Include

  • U.S. tax reform – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”)
  • Planning strategies for dealing with cross-border M&A
  • Update on foreign tax credit and Subpart F developments
  • Transfer pricing aspects of global intangible low-taxed income (“GILTI”) and base erosion anti-abuse tax (“BEAT”)
