"Flight Check": a new webinar series for Aerospace & Defence companies

A new webinar series dedicated to the Aerospace & Defence Industry, known as "Flight Check", was launched in April 2014. Organised jointly by WeiserMazars, Mazars and Moss Adams, the first webcast covered the theme of "U.S. Tax Opportunities for Aerospace and Defence Companies."

"U.S. Tax Opportunities for Aerospace and Defence Companies"

The United States has the largest aviation market in the world. In 2012, the U.S. aeronautics industry contributed $118.5 billion in export sales to the U.S. economy. The industry has a positive trade balance of $70.5 billion, the largest trade surplus of any manufacturing sector, and exports 64.3% of all aerospace production.

For U.S. aerospace manufacturers and global companies seeking to invest in this sector, there has seldom been a better tax environment. At both the federal and state levels, the landscape abounds with incentives and credits, creating excellent opportunities to establish profitable U.S. operations. International companies seeking to benefit from these opportunities will want the appropriate tax structure for their U.S. investment.

What are those credits and incentives? How can you best take advantage of them? And how should international companies structure their investments in the United States?

To shed light on these critical questions, a first international webcast was organised on April 2, 2014, entitled: “U.S. Tax Opportunities for Aerospace and Defense Companies”. Led by tax experts from WeiserMazars and Moss Adams, this conference brought together almost 50 participants from the U.S. and Europe. It also provided the opportunity for WeiserMazars and Mazars to innovatively promote their expertise on an international level.
