This week, there will be a new administration in the United States, and there are questions about how the incoming administration could affect the way companies may want to view the base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project.
The Trump Administration may have a different view from the outgoing Obama Administration that played a very active role in negotiating the OECD BEPS recommendations.
Watch a brief KPMG video [5:49 minutes] in which KPMG LLP’s John Gimigliano and Manal Corwin discuss actions to consider taking to manage BEPS in this new environment. A transcript is also provided.
