Rode Speaking at 2018 TEI Tax School in Houston

Tax Executives Institute (TEI) is the preeminent association for in-house tax professionals worldwide. The TEI Houston Chapter will host a second part to their 2018 TEI Tax School - Federal Tax Reform Update series. The event takes place Monday, May 7, 2018 from 8:30am to 5:00pm at the Hyatt Regency Houston Hotel in Houston, Texas. Andersen Tax Managing Director, Brad Rode, will be a presenter at the event. His presentation will be on Global Low Taxed Intangible Income (GILTI). 

The recently enacted U.S. tax reform introduced GILTI, an entirely new taxing regime that will affect all U.S. persons that qualify as U.S. shareholders of controlled foreign corporations (CFCs). GILTI has been said to result in an effective worldwide current tax consolidation system (at least in part) for many affected U.S. owners of CFCs, which contrasts from other provisions of the tax reform legislation that move in the direction of a territorial system. His presentation will cover the basic framework of the GILTI regime, discuss some of the open technical issues, and include observations and examples.

Other topics at this event include detailed analyses of Partnerships, Section 163(j); Meals & Entertainment and updates to Base Erosion Anti-Abuse Tax (BEAT) and Foreign Derived-Intangible Income (FDII) Tax. By the end of this course, participants will have a better understanding of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 and of any update guidance and regulations.
