IBFD and Tax Analysts Join Forces for Global Perspective on U.S. Tax Reform

U.S. tax reform is high on the agenda.  The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump recently unveiled the core principles of  "the most significant tax reform since 1986". IBFD and Tax Analysts, the top two sources of expertise on U.S. and international taxation, have pooled their resources to offer a global perspective on U.S. tax reform in a special issue of the Bulletin for International Taxation.

AMSTERDAM, June 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBFD and Tax Analysts share a mission: to promote the understanding of taxation and to foster open and informed debate. As independent, non-partisan and not-for-profit organizations, they have combined their extensive coverage and analysis of U.S. domestic and cross-border taxation, in order to examine the implications of U.S. tax reform both at home and abroad.

"It appears that the U.S. is embarking on the first major review and possible changes to the U.S. tax code in decades and everyone wants to better understand it," said Christopher Bergin, CEO of Tax Analysts. "That is why we exist, to provide timely news and in-depth analysis of major tax matters such as tax reform. By partnering with IBFD, we will help taxpayers globally understand the key measures and potential impact on them." 

"The combination of a Republican president and Republican majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate makes the enactment of comprehensive tax reform likely," explained Jan Maarten Slagter, CEO of IBFD. "This is why, together with Tax Analysts, we have produced a special issue of the Bulletin for International Taxation . Its 27 expert articles will go a long way to help tax professionals anticipate the potential complexities of the proposed measures. This  project marks the beginning of our combined efforts to further advance our shared mission."

"With growing globalization, taxation is often at the heart of national policies, as we are now seeing in the U.S.," said Maarten Goudsmit, IBFD's Director of Publishing. "In the end, it is the taxpayer, whether as an individual or as a corporation, who must adapt to the resulting changes in their practices. IBFD and Tax Analysts share an important role in providing the affected parties with the best possible answers to their questions. Over the past months, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Tax Analysts to fulfil this role."

The Special Issue for the Bulletin of International Taxation  provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the proposed reform measures and examines their impact on inbound and outbound investment activities and cross-border trade. The articles will also be published in parallel with the Tax Analyst platform. The Special Issue seeks to provide readers with answers to the following questions:

  • Investment location: Will the tax reform increase the attractiveness of the U.S. as an investment location? How will foreign investors be affected by the reform?
  • Tax structures and business models: How will the existing tax structures need to be adapted? How will border adjustments affect international trade? What will be their impact on outsourcing and offshoring structures?
  • International response: How will other countries respond to the U.S. tax reform?
  • Simplification and compliance: Will the tax reform simplify the U.S. tax system? Will the compliance burden be reduced?
