This webinar will explore the tax difficulties faced by multinational companies with foreign subsidiaries. Our panel of veteran foreign tax professionals will discuss the compliance challenges these businesses face, including recent transfer pricing cases, Section 894(c) payments made by hybrid entities, and impending changes to the current foreign taxation regime.


The 2017 Tax Act toughened taxation of foreign subsidiaries. Previously only repatriated earnings or Subpart F income was taxed; now Section 951A taxes GILTI at 10.5 percent. Recent transfer pricing challenges, inversion rules, and Section 894 (c) anti-hybrid provisions are only a few of businesses' challenges with foreign subsidiaries. The IRS challenged Coca-Cola's longstanding transfer pricing methods and won. Coca-Cola is appealing the decision.

To discourage inversion, newly inverted firms are subject to deterrents, including taxation of shareholders' dividends as ordinary income as opposed to qualified dividends or long-term capital gains. Sections 267A and 245A(e) disallow deductions for interest and royalties paid to related foreign entities using a hybrid structure. International tax practitioners must be aware of the many related party provisions to avoid or lessen their effects.

Listen as our panel of international income tax experts explains the challenges facing multinational businesses with foreign subsidiaries focusing on avoiding penalties and reducing its overall tax burden.
