A Taxing Question: The Impact of the Trump Tax Cut on Canada

23/04/2018 6:30:00 PM | Ottawa
President Donald Trump has hailed the recent U.S. tax cut as the largest in history. In reviewing the potential impact of this tax break, the Institute of Corporate Directors and Canada 2020 have partnered to assemble a group of leading experts and business people from both sides of the border to discuss the changes. How much of an impact will the changes have on U.S. competitiveness and on Canada? In what areas will the reduction in overall rates lead to significant changes? Will the new limitation on interest deductibility create an incentive to move debt onto the books of Canadian subsidiaries? Will even lower taxes on high-earners mean a shift of highly qualified talent to the United States? How should Canadian boards consider these developments and the impact on their firms? Join us in hearing our dynamic panel address some of these timely and relevant questions.
