James Guadiana, Partner at Barton LLP to Speak at The Knowledge Group’s Live Webcast

New York, NY, November 17, 2019 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that James Guadiana, Partner at Barton LLP will speak at a webcast entitled: “Emerging Trends and Developments on GILTI, FDII and BEPS: Significant Strategies to Mitigate Risks and Pitfalls.” This webcast is scheduled November 20, 2019 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (ET).

Event Summary:

The international tax landscape is expected to dramatically change before 2019 ends as developing countries consider a new global tax system and as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) moves closer towards full implementation. Recent developments that should give us a glimpse of the future include the final set of global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI) regulations, the newly proposed foreign-derived intangible income (FDII) rules, and the Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) program which aims to address “the tax challenges arising from the digitalisation of the economy.”

U.S. companies should revisit their tax strategies to cope with the looming changes.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the current and emerging trends and developments surrounding GILTI, FDII, and BEPS enforcement. Speakers will also offer helpful insights on how to develop and implement effective strategies to mitigate risks and pitfalls and ensure compliance in this evolving regulatory climate.

In a Live Webcast, the speakers will discuss:
