Merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions are not likely to be the first area you think of as affected by US tax reform, but the rules are changing. What are potential impacts on value, risks, and contracting associated with M&A transactions? We’ll discuss:

  • An overview of corporate tax reform, including reduced tax rates, NOL limitations, and deductions for capital expenditures.
  • New section 163(j) provisions that limit interest expense deductions.
  • New international tax rules, including transition tax, GILTI regime, FDII, and BEAT.

Participants will gain an understanding of key provisions in Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 that are likely to impact decisions and evaluations around M&A transactions.

Your tax reform journey will reveal challenges and opportunities at every stage—from assessing your starting point to the enactment of reform and beyond. Deloitte is here to help you create value at every turn and move forward with confidence.
