Tuesday, 26 May 2020 | Beyond COVID-19 | A Latin American tax perspective on the economic challenges (2 pm ET)

While it remains uncertain how long the current crisis will last, it has become clear that the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to result in one of the most significant global economic contractions in recent history. Latin America, although hit by the pandemic later than other regions, is not immune to these economic effects. Businesses in the region will have to identify means to respond to the economic challenges, such as conserving cash, restructuring supply chains and increasing intra-group financing, and plan for associated tax implications and consequences.

On this webcast, our panelists will discuss approaches from a tax perspective to help businesses manage the crisis and emerge more competitive in a post-COVID-19 world.

Topics will include:

  • Key macroeconomic factors, the business outlook and government responses in Latin America
  • Tax-efficient cash management alternatives
  • Capturing tax efficiency upon supply chain restructuring
  • Indirect taxes and custom duties management as a cash saving approach
  • Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act implications for Latin America

Date: Tuesday, 26 May 2020

Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT New York; 11:00-12:00 p.m. PDT Los Angeles

Registration: Register for this event.
