Webinar: US Tax Reform - Implications for the Rest of the World
Overview and learning objectives
This interactive webinar focuses on the international aspects of the US tax reform provisions. More specifically, the changes that non-US multinationals are facing in their inbound investment activities in the United States will be discussed, as well as the challenges of outbound structures that US-owned corporate groups need to be aware of in the post-reform environment. The webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of the practical implications of the reform and their impact on cross-border transactions and business models. While reviewing cases and examples, the webinar seeks to explore how the impact of the reform can be mitigated and what actions can be taken to minimize the tax risks of the reform.
After following this webinar, you will be able to:
  • interpret the scope of international aspects of the US tax reform provisions
  • identify key risk factors that non-US multinationals might face in developing US inbound tax planning following the reform 
  • ascertain core considerations in US outbound structures
  • gain knowledge about practical implications of the reform and its impact on cross-border transactions 
  • evaluate new tax planning strategies which can mitigate unfavourable impact of the reform on the group structure and tax positions
