How U.S. Tax Changes Will Affect U.S.-Asian Transfers of Investment and Technology

The U.S. tax law in 2018 dramatically changed the U.S. taxation of foreign investors in U.S. businesses and of foreign technology companies with U.S. subsidiaries. Likewise, the U.S. tax law in 2018 dramatically changed the U.S. taxation of U.S. investors in foreign businesses and of U.S. technology companies with foreign subsidiaries. The panelists will review these 2018 U.S. tax changes, and how they are likely to change the flows of investment and multinationals’ spending on developing technology, between the U.S. and Asia. The new U.S. tax rules will affect the advice that attorneys will give on structuring or restructuring cross-border investments, presenting opportunities but potential pitfalls.
