International Expansion: Taxes and Tax Incentives When Going Global with Katherine Markova, KPMG
International expansion is both exciting and challenging. We'll take you through potential pitfalls and opportunities associated with going global, including legal, accounting, tax and incentive considerations. We will use as many real life examples and as little jargon as possible, so even those with little or no knowledge of tax are welcome.
Attendees will learn:
Most actions have tax consequences - be aware of them!
Don't neglect your tax affairs - they often come up on buyer/lender due diligence
There are planning opportunities as well as risks
