Tax Goes Global

  • The effects of international tax reform
  • Transfer Pricing

Highlight Reel: FDII, GILTI and Other International Tax Developments
We’re taking on international tax reform- specifically global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI) and foreign derived intangible income (FDII) and their implications on broader international tax developments. Let’s discuss and understand the impacts of GILTI and FDII on the small firm practitioner and gain perspective on international tax developments resulting from tax reform.

Transfer Pricing & COVID-19
For the 2019 tax year, it will be transfer pricing (“TP”) as normal. However, for the 2020 tax year you will need to align your TP policy with what may be drastically different, economic results. Including making changes to your business model, making the correct application of your comparables, and document accordingly when the year closes. We discuss the above as well as other TP challenges that can arise during an economic slowdown. Multinational entities (“MNEs”) should be cautious in carrying out any TP activity during and post the economic slowdown. MNEs also should be prudent in preparing the 2019 TP Documentation to set the stage for the storm we will be addressing in 2020.

The Modern Economy of Tariffs and Trade War
In 2018, President Trump imposed additional tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China catching companies off-guard in what many believed was a simple negotiation to bring about a better trade agreement. Two years later, the U.S. – China trade war has resulted in a high-instability environment for international business. Leave this discussion with an advanced approach to navigating the uncertain waters of the worldwide market.

Cybersecurity & Privacy: The International Edition
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of 2018 has significant reach, capable of impacting U.S.- based companies with no presence in the EU at all.
