The international tax environment continues to be an area of scrutiny and focus by the taxing authorities. In late 2017, the U.S. passed the most substantial tax reform in over 20 years. In Mexico, the new administration is also contemplating substantial changes in tax law. We will discuss recent changes derived from the 2017 tax act affecting international tax matters for cross-border transactions between Canada, Mexico and USA. Relevant topics will also include International legal considerations.
