US Tax Reform Update Recap

On Thursday, February 1, 2018, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia collaborated with the French and German American Chambers of Commerce for a US Tax Reform Update. The seminar was hosted by BABCPHL Club Level member, Deloitte LLP.  Approximately 35 people from the three Chambers participated in this informative program.

Jared Gordon, Director, and Paul Pelligrini, Senior Manager, both with the Philadelphia International Tax Group spoke about the topic. Jared has more than 20 years of experience in corporate and international taxation, serving multinational companies in a number industry sectors.  He provides international tax structuring strategy and advice.  Paul has almost a decade of experience serving multinational and private equity companies on a wide variety of matters.  His practice focuses on international tax issues including M&A, dispositions, post-acquisition integration and cross-border financings and restructurings.  The interactive meeting kicked off with attendees being asked to fill out and stick post-it notes to signs listing US tax reform topics of greatest interest scattered throughout the room.

The speakers reported on tax policy and the new tax law; international tax key provisions; federal tax considerations; planning and financial reporting; and multistate tax considerations. The presentations were very technical, and presenters invited questions from the audience throughout their discussion.  Attendees’ questions helped guide the conversation, and ensured everyone’s concerns were addressed.  If you missed the seminar, have questions and/or would like more information regarding the subject matter please contact us at babc@babcphl.com.
