This webinar will introduce the methods used by the United States to tax foreign-sourced income earned by foreign corporations with American stakeholders.
The United States institutes a multitude of anti-deferral mechanisms targeting this income. The 2017 GILTI regime initially created a seismic shift in how foreign corporate activities are taxed; in July 2020, GILTI regulations were released, further altering decision making.
This program will focus on the anti-deferral provisions relevant for foreign corporations’ stakeholders – with particular emphasis on how GILTI alters deferral opportunities previously available and how the high-tax exclusion contained in the regulations significantly modifies GILTI's scope. Options for GILTI mitigation will also be covered – both methods for reducing GILTI’s tax effect and alternate possibilities for generating foreign-sourced income.
