PLI - Basics of International Taxation 2016

PLI New York Center 1177 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY

Cooley partner Jeremy Naylor will be speaking at Practising Law Institute's "Basics of International Taxation 2016."

Why you should attend

In a global business environment, transactions with customers and suppliers often transcend national borders and investment and activities are frequently cross-border as well.   A working knowledge of the U.S. international tax rules is, therefore, of paramount importance to a wide variety of tax and corporate professionals.

This year's program will be led by international tax experts and focuses on specific types of outbound and inbound investment and activities, and their U.S. tax consequences. Each panel will focus upon the issues raised by inbound and outbound investments and describe how the U.S. tax rules address the issues raised. In particular, each panel will focus upon how these rules impact financings, mergers, acquisitions and other commercial activities.

What you will learn

  • Study the impact of Subpart F on global business
  • Explore the background, purpose and history of foreigh tax credits
  • Understand the mechanics and significance of tax treaties
  • Examine transfer pricing principles and their use in transfer of good, services and intangibles
  • Get an overview of the reporting and withholding requirements in international transactions
  • Learn to recognize passive Foreigh Investment Companies (PFICs)
  • Identify the issues raised by a global workforce

Who should attend

Corporate, law firm and accounting firm professionals that consider cross-border transactions and need a working knowledge of relevant U.S. international tax rules, and government attorneys who want to stay on top of what's happening in the international tax arena will benefit from attending this program.
