Moving from a worldwide system of taxation to a territorial system of taxation requires the ability to understand and build a framework for the future state. U.S. multinational companies should be evaluating the potential tax impact of the legislation such as a one-time taxable event for accumulated overseas earnings in moving to a territorial system of taxation.  

How Can BDO Help? 

BDO can assist U.S. multinationals in assessing the impacts of tax reform by analyzing and reviewing key tax attributes, such as earnings and profits, foreign tax pools, tax basis, and loss carryforwards.
