New Tax Laws, Same Uncertainty: The Global Context

Our popular “Meet the Speaker” series, featuring interviews with speakers at the 26th Annual NASPP Conference, is a great way to get to know our many distinguished speakers and find out more about their sessions in advance of the Conference.

For today’s “Meet the Speaker” interview, we feature an interview with Nicholas Greenacre of White & Case LLP, who will lead the session “New Tax Laws, Same Uncertainty: The Global Context.”  Here is what Nicholas had to say:

NASPP: Why is tax law a particularly timely right now?

Nicholas:  With the increase in isolationism and nationalism across the globe, we are seeing countries take steps to make themselves more favourable to companies. This has resulted in lots of changes and it is important to keep up to date with them.

NASPP: What is one action should companies be taking now?

Nicholas: Unfortunately, it is review your plans to check they are compliant with new laws and operating in the most efficient manner for your company and your employees.

NASPP: When it comes to taxes, what is the worst that can happen?

Nicholas: The worst that can happen is to become liable for penalties and interest for failing to pay taxes. Failing to keep up with changes to tax laws can also result in your plans becoming out of date, resulting in them not being tax efficient.

NASPP: If you weren't in stock compensation, what would you be doing?

Nicholas:  A racing car driver, although after a recent team social at the go-kart track I think it is best that I remain in stock compensation!
