Monday, 20 December 2021 | Understanding the US Build Back Better Act (1 pm ET)

Since the US Build Back Better Act (BBBA) reconciliation bill passed the House of Representatives on 19 November 2021, companies have been waiting to see what action the Senate would take. The draft legislative text released on December 11, 2021 by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, (SFC proposal), contains several changes to the international tax proposals in the House bill.

In this webcast, EY panelists will discuss the SFC proposal with particular focus on the international tax provisions as compared to the House bill. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Legislative outlook for the BBBA reconciliation bill

  • Interest expense limitation under proposed Section 163(n)

  • Subpart F and global intangible low-taxed income

  • Foreign tax credits

  • Corporate alternative minimum tax

  • Anti-inversion rules of Section 7874

  • Base erosion and anti-abuse tax under Section 59A
