17.09.2019 Duesseldorf | 18.09.2019 Hamburg | 19.09.2019 Frankfurt on the Main

AmCham Germany, Mazars Germany and Mazars North America Alliance, BKD LLP cordially invite you to the following series of Expert Briefings

About the topic:

In our upcoming series of Expert Briefings, experts from Mazars Germany and Mazars North America Alliance, BKD LLP will give you an update on options for investing into the US and relevant tax planning considerations.
They will highlight how international tax provisions of the US Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA) will fit into the larger world of international taxation. Particular attention will be paid to areas of interest to German companies with operations in the US or contemplating investment into the US.

In an interactive workshop, we will explore the following three options and will review the advantages and disadvantages of each option. We will provide case studies of success stories as well as unsuccessful investments:

  • Greenfield Investment: An investment in which the parent company constructs its own subsidiary in the US.
  • Acquisition: Investing into the US through an acquisition of a similar company (competitor) or one that offers complimentary products to expand the product range.
  • Joint Venture: Expanding into the US through a partnership with an existing company in the US.

We will highlight how international tax provisions of the US Tax Cuts Jobs Act (TCJA) will fit into the larger world of international taxation. Particular attention will be paid to several areas of interest to German companies with operations in the US or contemplating investment into the US. These include tax planning opportunities related to inbound investment, the territorial participation exemption system, deemed repatriation transition tax, export incentives, transfer pricing, and base erosion provisions.
