Mexico’s proposed tax reform, first presented by President Enrique Peña Nieto on 8 September, has been approved by the two houses and is about to be finalized and signed into law.

The changes included in the final reform package could have significant tax impact on all multinationals operating or investing in Mexico.

EY is dedicated to keeping you informed of the changes. During this webcast, we will cover highlights of the final proposal as approved – increased income tax rates on earnings, a broadened tax base, and changes to the maquiladora regime.

Join our panel of EY tax professionals for an interactive discussion and find out what these latest developments will mean to you and your company’s operations. During this live, interactive webcast, you will have the opportunity to ask questions through the website and the panelists will answer as many of your questions as time permits.

This program will be of interest to vice presidents/directors of tax/international tax/transfer pricing/customs/global trade, directors of finance, CFOs, international tax managers and tax accountants looking for the latest practical information and guidance on the Mexican tax environment.
