We’re excited to announce our next webinar, which will take place on Monday, June 3rd at 12:00 pm BST and focus on issues related to citizenship-based taxation in the USA.
Only the USA (and Eritrea) works with a citizenship-based model of taxation. All other countries in the world use what is known as a territorial-based system to determine the individuals and companies that will be subject to local taxation.
Therefore, in simple terms, the US is the only country in the world that levies taxes on its citizens and residents even if they are living or working abroad.
This live event will look at territorial vs. citizenship-based taxation, their many advantages and disadvantages, and the myriad of challenges and questions posed by the US’s use of this type of tax system.
