US tax reform - Impact and opportunities for US taxpayers

21 March 2018, Hong Kong

By invitation only  

The US tax reform represents the most sweeping changes to the US income tax code in decades. The massive tax reform contains new provisions impacting individuals, estates, pass-through entitles and corporations. In particular, the law also sets a new framework for the treatment of non-US source income received by US taxpayers which will have dramatic immediate and long term implications on US individual engaged in business activities outside the US.

As a US taxpayer, you may question the following: 

  • As a sole proprietor or partner / shareholder of a partnership or S corporation, how would you get benefits from the new 20% deduction for certain pass-through income? 
  • As a US shareholder of a Controlled Foreign Corporation, how will the one-time mandatory repatriation ‘toll charge’ and the new global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI) provisions impact you? 
  • The new law doubles the ‘life time’ exclusion amount of estate, gift and generation-skipping tax from US$5.6 million to US$11.2 million. What actions should you consider in your estate tax planning?

The significant changes made in the new tax law not only raise questions but also create a host of planning opportunities. 

In this seminar, our tax professionals will share insights on:

  • an overview of the key provisions of the Act and the latest administrative guidance under those provisions;
  • how the implementation of tax planning can generate significant value from the opportunities that the tax reform presents.
