Wednesday, 18 November 2020 | Key tax, regulatory, and global trade implications as a result of the US general election outcome (3:00 pm GMT)

The US presidential election is quickly approaching on 03 November 2020 with former Vice President Joe Biden running against President Trump. Additionally, the Department of Treasury (Treasury) has released a number of regulatory packages that are of particular significance to inbound investors. Finally, events in the past 12 to 18 months have led to a level of volatility in the global trade arena, with tariffs being levied and digital taxes being discussed.

The US tax desk is hosting a debrief session to discuss what the outcome of the US general election means regarding US tax and trade policies and the impacts for inbound investors. Topics include: 

  • The 2020 US general election results and what this means;
  • A summary of recent Treasury regulation packages of relevance to inbound investors; and,
  • An overview of the US responses to global trade, including tariffs and digital taxes.

Craig Hillier, EY Americas Director of International Tax and Transactions Services, and Andrew Brown, US Tax Desk Leader, Ernst & Young LLP, will be joined by a panel of professionals to discuss the above.

We would encourage you to ask us questions throughout. If you already have one, please ask us here.

We hope you will be able to join us.
