Banking Crisis Whitepaper, Part II of II: Tax Reformation and Offshore Banks

To say the political landscape in the United States is tumultuous right now might be the understatement of the year.  Even with one party controlling both the Executive and Legislative branches of the government, the party in power has shown little ability to get anything done on their own stated agenda.  However, there is one glaring opportunity that most politicians will not be able to resist, and that’s the chance to overhaul or at least impact the U.S. tax system.  Lowering taxes is typically a very popular measure for most politicians, and both major U.S. political parties will want in on the action.  Beyond the obvious lowering of taxes across the board, there is a ‘Golden Parachute’ of sorts being dangled out to U.S. Corporations – which is a one-time exemption to bring cash and profits back the United States with minimal tax exposure.  When that happens (which we predict it will), the implications for Banking and Financial institutions with offshore presence will go far beyond the Panama Papers.  Click Read More below to download and read Part II of our Banking Crisis series.  If you missed Part I - click here.

Market Alerts: Q4 Close!

This is the last quarter for many of the world's largest technology suppliers.  You no doubt have seen a greater sense of urgency from many of them this time of year - for good reason.  Besides revenue and profits that are on the line, individual sales bonuses and commissions are as well.  Now is the time to optimize these agreements for better terms and pricing:

Oracle: November and December are their BIGGEST months of the year.  As such they will push for more.

IBM: Watson?  Cloud growth?  Why did Warren Buffet dump IBM shares?  Should you buy in?  Talk to us if you have IBM deals.

SAP: Are paying any support to SAP? New licenses before year- end? Audits?  Please talk to us first.

Microsoft: Q4 marks the end of their first half.  They will roll out changes to pricing, terms and conditions.  December is their largest revenue month after June.

Contact us for a full review of your Q4 IT Portfolio Spend to ensure you're maximizing value with all suppliers.
