Questions About International Tax? Get Answers at Utah Global Forum
Deloitte Tax expert can help save unnecessary tax payments

Salt Lake City, UTAH — For Utah businesses who want to expand internationally, the question is not whether there is a market for Utah products and services—there is. The questions often lie with navigating the barriers of legal, tax and accounting issues, all of which can make a company lose key profit margins. These questions will be addressed by a panel at September’s Utah Global Forum (UGF), which will include Chris Fletcher of Deloitte Tax.
