Podcast overview

Recent tariff and digital services tax (DST) activity has affected cross-border trade, sometimes in unexpected ways. Podcast hosts Kim Majure and Kortney Wallace speak with KPMG Trade & Customs principals George Zaharatos and Chris Young about U.S. protective tariff actions, how DST developments have become intertwined with these actions, and the interaction between the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and Mexico’s new digital VAT. Antonio Zuazua, Indirect Tax leader for KPMG in Mexico, provides further insights on the new VAT and whether the USMCA could preclude its application to U.S. digital service providers.
