SI Speaks on Global Tax and International Trade Reform

Marc Schwartz and Paul Tadros were honored to be invited to speak at the Georgia Society of CPA (GSCPA) annual Southeastern Accounting Show (SEAS) on August 30, 2017 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, GA.

The pair spoke about possible international tax reform coming out of the US, including the potential pitfalls of the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) which, thankfully, is no longer on the list of potential reform items. They also touched on other global tax reform, including the OECD’s BEPS (base erosion and profit shifting) initiative and the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (MLI) and the potential impact on international business, US companies and individual residents. Trade agreements, such as NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement) were also a focus, where Marc and Paul gave an update on items recently debated between Canada, Mexico the US and a possible timeline for further discussion and modification.

“The SEAS is an event I look forward to every year to reconnect with friends and colleagues from across the region”, Schwartz stated when asked why he attended. The SI team – now 12+ years old — looks forward to participating in future events and would like especially to thank Lynne Carr for her efforts.
