What challenges are Venture Capitals facing today?

The new administration highlights comprehensive tax reform as one of its top priorities. What are the potential impacts of these new policies on Venture Capitals and their portfolio companies?

How PwC can help: Our Tax Services practice has a detailed analysis of the various proposals from Trump Administration, the House GOP Blueprint, and the Senate Finance Committee and can help Venture Capital firms navigate the nuances of each and make the best decisions to move their business forward with confidence.

Trump administration’s cash repatriation policies could increase corporate venture capital/accelerate mergers and acquisitions.  

How PwC can help: We have unique insights and experienced professionals with specific domain expertise, specializing in helping companies with their corporate finance needs including mergers and acquisitions. Through our various lines of service (Tax, Audit, and Advisory), and global network, we have built deep working relationships with many Venture Capital firms and their portfolio companies, enabling us to successfully match them with global strategic opportunities.

Potential changes in H1B Visa policies include raising the prevailing wage to foreign workers, and requiring employers to hire American workers first for every visa program.  The new proposals could prove problematic for Venture Capitals as they will have to invest more time and money in the hiring of new workers that are not US Citizens.

How PwC can help: PwC’s immigration lawyers work in close collaboration with colleagues in Employment Law, Human Resources, and Global Tax Services to deliver legal advice with a strategic, holistic business focus.
