Thomson Reuters Releases Reports on Latin American Venture Equity and Mexican Tax Laws

World Trade Executive Brand Offers Valuable Insight Into Latin America Business Strategies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters has released two publications for practitioners serving Latin America: the annual Venture Equity Latin America's Year-end Report and the 2011 edition of Mexico Tax, Law & Business Briefing.

Venture Equity Latin America's Year-end Report. The latest edition enables readers to track industry trends with year-over-year comparisons of private equity deals, new fundraising, exit strategies, restructuring & bankruptcy proceedings, and other regulatory developments.

According to the report, fundraising and private equity investment in Latin America increased in 2010, with fundraising reaching nearly $8 billion. Investment numbers grew, in part, for the following reasons:

  • Latin America's developing middle class is driving significant growth in many consumer-oriented sectors, such as consumer products and services and food production and distribution.

  • Latin America's robust private pension fund systems continue to be important investments for the alternative asset class in countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Chile.

  • Brazil has increased infrastructure investments in preparation for hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. Recently discovered oil reserves and an increased investment in renewable energy also drove growth in Brazil.

Mexico Tax, Law & Business Briefing. The 2011 edition covers important changes in Mexico's tax and finance laws, as well as new case studies and analysis from leading practitioners. The book examines key issues such as Mexican tax audits, secret comparables in transfer pricing examinations, business restructurings, permanent establishment, withholding tax issues, and treaty abuse.

The briefing also addresses new provisions for consolidated corporate groups, the enactment of final maquiladora reform legislation, opportunities arising from Mexico's climate change and environmental rules, new Pemex oil rules, and private equity in Mexico.

Both titles are published under the WorldTrade Executive (WTE) brand within Thomson Reuters. WTE; a publisher covering global tax, financial, legal, and regulatory issues; offers additional products covering LATAM including: Latin American Law and Business Report, Practical Latin American Tax Strategies, the authoritative Practical Mexican Tax Strategies, and Latin American Law & Business Report.
