Tuesday, April 27. ASEAN-6 panel discussions: Integrated regional value chains - Part 2: Electronics and automotive 11:00 a.m., ET. Following supply disruptions of everything from pasta to masks, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated a rethink of how multinational corporations configure their global supply chains. Guest panelists from government investment agencies in key ASEAN countries will be sharing insights on individual country strengths and how complementary segments of a value chain can be optimized across multiple ASEAN locations.

Tuesday, April 27. Upcoming changes to IRC Section 174: Amortization of research and experimental expenditures, 1:00 p.m. ET. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) included many provisions that were intended as “revenue raisers” to offset some of the more taxpayer-favorable aspects of the TCJA. One such provision, scheduled to come into effect for tax years beginning on or after 1 January 2022, is the required amortization of what are currently deductible research and experimental (R&E) expenditures (over five years for domestic R&E, 15 years for foreign). With 2022 looming closer, taxpayers are newly focused on both the implications of the TCJA changes to IRC Section 174 as well as potential planning. Register.
