The Future of U.S. Transfer Pricing — Is There One?

Baker McKenzie_logoWhile the specifics of the Trump Administration’s tax plan are in flux, the one certainty is that any significant change to the U.S. corporate tax code will trigger a host of complex decisions by multinational corporations and global tax authorities. Other countries will react legislatively and regulatory to the jettisoning of the U.S. 35 percent corporate tax rate. This will have significant consequences for multinational tax planning.

Will territoriality be a key component of tax reform? Will Subpart F rules be eliminated? Could a new destination-based cash flow tax regime change transfer pricing overnight?

Join us at the 7th Annual Bloomberg BNA and Baker McKenzie Global Transfer Pricing Conference: Washington, D.C. on June 7 & 8, 2017 to hear government officials from key jurisdictions, policy makers and leading industry experts and advisers discuss and debate contentious transfer pricing on the cusp of overhauling the U.S. international tax rules.
