BDO USA, LLP invites you to join us for a seminar discussing changes resulting from the new tax reform bill. Tax reform of this magnitude will have broad implications - both on businesses and the people behind them. From lowering the corporate and individual income rates and eliminating numerous deductions, to new rules for pass-throughs, the elimination of the AMT for corporations, and the shift to a territorial tax system, the $1.5 trillion sweeping legislation represents the biggest change to the tax code in a generation.

But what does the new law really mean for your business, and for you? The impact will be different for every business, every industry and every individual. Learn what you should be doing immediately to prepare for the impending changes.
