Why You Should Attend

In a global business environment, transactions with customers and suppliers often transcend national borders and investment and activities are frequently cross-border as well. An understanding of the U.S. international tax rules--especially after enactment of the 2017 Tax Act--is of paramount importance to a wide variety of tax and corporate professionals.

This year’s program will be led by international tax experts and focuses on specific types of outbound and inbound investment and activities, and their U.S. tax consequences. Each panel will focus upon the issues raised by inbound and outbound investments and describe how the new U.S. tax rules address the issues raised. In particular, each panel will focus upon how these rules impact financings, mergers, acquisitions and other commercial activities.
