Frequently asked questions

Complex and persistent US Corporate Tax issues can erode the benefit of opportunities created through cross-border commerce. Challenges and issues in the areas of tax compliance, US company tax preparation, statutory accounting, bookkeeping and payroll compliance, project coordination, and management can impair an organization’s performance, profitability, and growth. KPMG’s US Corporate Tax professionals understand the ever-changing regulatory environment and how US Corporate Tax rate changes can affect your business. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients, applying the advanced corporation tax calculator technologies, effective tax accounting tools and the vast resources of our international network of tax professionals to help organizations achieve sustainable results over the long term.

The US tax landscape has changed dramatically in recent years, influenced by geopolitical shifts, technological innovation, protectionism, US Corporate Tax reform, and regulatory change. At the same time, changing consumer demands and the emergence of previously unseen types of business models present novel challenges for organizations engaging in cross-border commerce. KPMG’s experienced US Corporate Tax specialists draw upon an award-winning global network of business tax professionals. We can work with you to define and build an ideal target operating model, improve accounting and corporate income tax compliance processes, and manage complex US Corporate Tax rate calculations that add value over time.

The United States frequently updates its corporate income tax guidance. Businesses and organizations engaged in cross-border commerce may receive advisories on forthcoming US tax-related legislation, but their full impact often remains uncertain until the measures are enacted. Until that time, corporate income tax planners cannot know with certainty the effective dates of any legislation, the specifics of tax rates and grandfather clauses, and the prospects of significant modifications made to the proposals as they are considered by Congress. KPMG collaborates with an international network of US tax professionals to keep clients abreast of the latest Canadian and US tax news. Our tax team can help you plan for possible corporate income tax changes, and contingencies, leveraging our skills and experience to quickly respond to challenges and changes before they become intractable.

Our clients gain access to a global network of accounting resources and US tax knowledge provided by tax consultants who know and understand local business tax requirements at home, abroad, or wherever you do business.
