This webinar will provide tax advisers with a practical guide to the tax reporting challenges of the global intangible low taxed income (GILTI) provisions in the new tax reform bill. The panel will focus on identifying the differences in treatment of controlled foreign corporations (CFC) income under the new regime. The panel will detail the tax calculations and reporting requirements for taxpayers with income subject to GILTI and describe planning opportunities to minimize the tax impact on individuals with CFC holdings.


A provision in the tax reform law that has an unexpected impact on individual taxpayers is Section 951A tax on the GILTI of U.S. shareholders of CFCs. Tax advisers must immediately grasp the details to avoid costly tax consequences for their clients engaged in cross-border activities.

The new law ends prior deferral treatment and subjects "U.S. shareholders" of CFCs, defined as U.S. persons owning at least 10% of the vote or value of a specified foreign corporation, to current tax on any income more than 10% of the CFC's qualified business asset investment (QBAI).

The QBAI calculation includes tangible business personal property but excludes intangible property amortizable under Section 197. Taxpayers must report this income as a new category of Subpart F income. This hits tech companies, service providers, and firms with high intangible assets particularly hard.

Critical to the tax impact of GILTI is the disparate treatment between corporate and individual taxpayers. Tax reform grants corporate taxpayers significant offsets as well as a lower rate. C corporations may reduce GILTI by 50%, receive a credit for up to 80% of foreign income taxes paid or accrued by the CFC, and pay a lower maximum tax rate of 21%. Individuals owning CFC shares aren't eligible for these reductions, resulting in a much higher tax impact on individuals than on corporate entities.

Listen as our expert panel provides a thorough and practical guide to the mechanics of identifying, calculating and reporting GILTI income for individual taxpayers under the new Section 951A.
