As business becomes increasingly international at all levels, from the multinational to the sole proprietor, it is more likely than ever that your business (or your clients’ businesses) will need to understand international tax rules.
This presentation is designed for non-international tax professionals with little or no international tax experience. The presentation focuses on the U.S. tax issues that those seeking to expand internationally will face. Although U.S. individual taxation may be mentioned, this program emphasizes U.S. corporate taxation. Furthermore, U.S. income tax reporting and compliance requirements are only covered briefly.
The objectives of this 90 minute webinar include providing participants with a conceptual understanding and practical application of the following:
• International Tax Overview
• Taxation of U.S. Persons with Foreign Income
