International Trade, Export Compliance & Customs Update


Event details

You are invited to join us for our annual Tysons Corner trade update.

This program will focus on the increasing stakes and rising costs on multi-national firms from new trade policy measures like increased tariffs, new export control and sanctions developments, and general uncertainty from the escalating trade war. There is a renewed urgency for trade professionals to communicate and cooperate more closely to help ensure comprehensive risk management with respect to a company’s positions as well as mitigating the rising costs.

Topics for the day will include:


An update on the escalating trade war including how leading companies are reducing the financial burden from the increased tariffs.

How tax and trade teams in multi-national companies should work together to drive the most value to their enterprise including a discussion on how increased tariffs will affect 2019 and future transfer pricing results.

The latest developments in U.S. export control and trade sanctions, including controls on emerging technology and China, as well as managing export compliance risk in M&A transactions.

The biggest struggles and best practices related to evolving trade compliance including a discussion on recent enforcement trends.

How companies are relying on innovation such as blockchain, compliance bots, and data analytics to manage trade.

After the program, we invite you to stay for a networking lunch.

In addition, KPMG Trade & Customs professionals will be available to meet with attendees after the seminar. If you are interested in discussing your company’s trade issues or inquiries, please e-mail Amie Ahanchian or Gina Li to arrange a meeting.
