Event Details

The US Congress has approved and the US President has signed into law a massive tax reform package. This moves the US toward a participation exemption-style system for taxing foreign-sourced income of domestic multinational corporations, with some of the cost of that tax relief offset by provisions that scale back or eliminate many longstanding deductions, credits, and incentives for businesses and individuals. The impact of these changes could be significant to global multinational companies operating in or trading with US and may influence strategic decision makings.

AMCHAM is delighted to have three tax experts from Deloitte to help address and highlight key areas that are relevant to U.S. companies based in Penang, on Wednesday, July 18 from 1.50 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. at the Hotel Equatorial Penang.

· Global Tax Perspectives & Trends

- A World of Change

- Industry Lens (What / How / When)
