Description

This is a complimentary program sponsored by Deloitte.

Today, US companies are challenged by a magnitude of tax reforms the likes of which have not been seen since the 1980s.   While US tax reform is the latest, it follows on the heels of other international tax reforms including the OECD BEPS project and the EU’s Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive.  Add to these, the growing indirect tax requirements for electronic access to ERP transactions such as the OECD’s Standard Audit File for Tax (“SAF-T”), Spain’s ISI, Brazil’s SPED and others.  At the same time, companies are digitizing their businesses and applying technologies to transform global financial operations in the pursuit of cost savings and streamlined compliance.

This webinar will replace confusion with clarity so the next strategic decisions you make at your corporation will be informed and confident.  Join us for this 60-minute webinar where our subject matter experts will discuss the impact of the new tax reforms, current methods of collecting and monitoring data for compliance and how these lack sustainability, and strategies for preparing from an operational perspective that ease the burden of compliance.

Educational Objectives:
• Gain meaningful insights into the key challenges of international data collection required by the new regulations 
• Recognize and understand the impact of changes in tax and financial regulation – not only in the U.S., but worldwide as countries put in place their own competitive reforms to attract trade 
• Learn best practices in changing times from a leading US multinational corporation
