The U.S. tax law enacted in December 2017 (the 2017 Tax Act) was a game changer for many businesses—especially for multinational organizations as new tax concepts were layered on the existing tax system and had a significant impact on an organization's effective tax rate. The landscape may become even more complicated with the potential adoption of the Biden administration's tax proposals. Even the most experienced international tax practitioners can become mired in the complexity when evaluating the potential impact of these rules on a company's global operations.

The KPMG international tax reform analyzer can help.

ITRA also links to other KPMG tax tools, providing a broader picture of the potential impact of tax reform, including:

  • ITRA's Connector:

Connecting tax reform modeling and compliance

ITRA's tax compliance connector (ITRA's Connector) interfaces directly with third-party corporate income tax compliance tools, such as Corptax and Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Income Tax compliance software. Without this automated interface, multinational companies may experience gaps and inefficiencies in connecting their international tax calculations to completed tax forms.

  • ITRA's PTEP module:
  • State and local tax reform tool: Helps measure the potential state and local income tax impact of tax reform by estimating and evaluating various significant provisions.
  • KPMG Section 987 Model:

Streamlining Section 987 gain/(loss) calculations and tracking

Section 987 gain/(loss) calculations and related tracking of pools are complicated and time-consuming. The KPMG Section 987 Model helps clients understand the potential impact of Section 987 gain/(loss) transactions, support efficient tax return preparation, and make informed tax planning decisions. Outputs from the model can be used with ITRA, so client can take full advantage of ITRA's scenario planning capabilities.
