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.

Chris Fletcher’s expertise includes foreign tax credit planning, global financing, transfer pricing and much more. Forum attendees will learn how credit planning can impact their business and will gain a better understanding of what they may face when starting or increasing exports.

Fletcher has been with Deloitte Tax for 20 years, advising businesses on a broad range of tax issues. The company advises each client on specific issues relative to the laws and regulations of the region in which the client sells a product or service—nationally or internationally.

In conjunction with World Trade Center Utah, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Salt Lake Chamber, Governor Gary R. Herbert will present this forum on Sept. 24 in the Salt Palace, Grand Ballroom.

Any company with an intent in growing or starting their firm in exporting should attend the Utah Global Forum, presented by Governor Gary R. Herbert. UGF is Utah’s premiere international event organized to connect Utah business owners, leadership, sales and marketing professionals with the global market and to showcase what makes Utah great for foreign investors. The event will attract a broad domestic and international business audience and will inspire attendees to start or increase global trade and investment.
