The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act introduced new concepts such as GILTI, FDII, and BEAT to the international tax landscape. With these changes, businesses should rethink their international entity structures and entity choice.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) fundamentally transformed how U.S. businesses with international operations are taxed. Internationally active businesses should rethink their international entity structures since the old models likely no longer apply. New concepts such as Global Intangible Low Taxes Income (GILTI), Foreign Derived Intangible Income (FDII), Base Erosion Anti-Abuse Tax (BEAT), and others have also been introduced to the international tax landscape.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss how this new complex and interconnected international tax regime could impact your business. We’ll identify where your current structure may be resulting in an increased global tax burden, or potential opportunities to take advantage of beneficial tax provisions.

At the conclusion of this session participants will be able to:

  • Understand the TCJA’s key concepts affecting U.S. businesses with international operations.
  • Identify areas of potential opportunity and minimize risk relating to the new tax provisions.
  • Understand the benefits and downsides to the international entity structures.
