For more than a half a century, the United States has served as a leader in foreign investment and business opportunities. This has been attributable in part to a relatively strong U.S. economy; the U.S. dollar as the reserve currency; political stability; and until recently, a U.S. federal income tax framework that has been relatively stable since the 1980s.

Today, significant changes in U.S. tax and trade policy have created a new uncertainty. As always, big change presents big opportunities—for risk as well as reward. Smart investors will be tracking developments, as they continue to arise, and proactively addressing the landscape for investment in the United States.

This KPMG guide can help investors navigate this new and changing business, tax, and trade landscape in the United States.
