Overview


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 affect not only large U.S. and non-U.S. based multinationals, but also increasingly affect mid-sized and smaller organizations and investors, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other commercial activity.  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 in light of the 2017 Tax Act.  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

  • Transfer pricing developments and transfer pricing’s role in new GILTI and FDII provisions
  • The impact of OECD developments on BEPS, treaty developments and the new BEAT and hybrid provisions included in the 2017 Tax Act
  • Cross-border merger and acquisition issues, techniques and developments, including new Sections 245A, 367(a) and 965
  • Changes to the anti-deferral rules, foreign tax credits and FDII
  • Dealing with international joint ventures, revisiting fund structures and the new paradigm shift for the partnership form
