Monday, September 20 | US international tax reform: Update on recent developments (1 pm ET)

Significant international tax changes have been proposed this year, including the Biden Administration’s Made in America Plan (as outlined in the Green Book) and a discussion draft of Senator Ron Wyden’s international tax framework, among others. Many of these changes would significantly affect the global taxation of multinational corporate groups.

Join our panelists as they discuss the various proposals, including the following:

  • Potential changes to US taxation of offshore income under the rules for global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI), subpart F, and foreign branch income, along with the related foreign tax credit implications
  • Potential changes to the rules for foreign-derived intangible income (FDII), as well as the outlook for R&D capitalization under Section 174
  • Potential modifications to the base erosion anti-abuse tax (BEAT), including the potential for incorporating elements of the proposal for Stopping Harmful Inversions and Ending Low-Tax Developments (SHIELD)
  • Developments at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, particularly the Pillar One and Pillar Two proposals, and how these proposals may influence US tax legislation
  • What companies should be doing now

Date:                   Monday, September 20, 2021

Time:                  1:00–2:30 p.m. EDT New York; 10:00–11:30 a.m. PDT Los Angeles
