Foreign Outbound Transaction Planning: Navigating Deferral Under Subpart F and the New IRC Sections 367, 7874, and 385 Regulations
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This course will provide corporate tax advisers with a broad and practical guide to foreign tax planning of outbound transactions. The panel will describe the various deferral structures allowed by the Internal Revenue Code, review the ownership and asset thresholds for “CFC” and “PFIC” status and detail the related reporting requirements for those entities. The panel will also take a critical look at key developments concerning outbound foreign transactions, including the new Anti-Inversion Regulations under Section 7874 and proposed new regulations under Sections 385 and 367(a) and (d).
- Explanation of Various Structures for Outbound Transactions
- New anti-hybrid rules
- Amended rules applicable to CFCs (“Controlled Foreign Corporations”) and PFICs (“Passive Foreign Investment Companies”)
- Related reporting requirements
- How to Structure Outbound Transfers of Intangibles in light of the newly proposed Regulations issued under Section 367(a) and (d)
- Planning Traps for the Unwary presented by the new Anti-Inversion Regulations and Proposed Section 385 Regulations
- What you need to know about the new U.S. Country-by-Country Reporting Regulations, as well as the evolving international transfer pricing norms being advocated by the OECD in its BEPS initiative
The panel will analyze and tackle these and other relevant topics under:
- What are the ownership thresholds, which can trigger the end of taxdeferral treatment of outbound transactions and structures?
- What do the new Section 367 rules mean for goodwill, going-concern value, and other intangible assets?

- What tax planning and compliance challenges will the new U.S. country-by-country reporting standards have on outbound transactions?
