Utilizing Treaty Provisions to Achieve Optimal Tax Results, Complying With Foreign Reporting Requirements
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This course will provide tax advisers with a deep dive into tax reporting requirements and planning opportunities for clients who take distributions from, or have ownership of, UK-based retirement accounts such as self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) and other plans. The panel will discuss the U.S. tax law and treaty provisions that exempt SIPPs from the ordinary treatment as a non-qualified plan, detail events that trigger U.S. recognition, and outline tax planning and reporting guidance on distributions from SIPPs.
- SIPPs—status as non-qualified plans
- Treaty exceptions and thresholds
- Required filings for account ownership
- Distribution planning and available elections under treaty
- Reporting distributions and claiming U.S. foreign tax credits under IRC 901
The panel will discuss these and other important topics:
- What types of UK retirement and pension accounts receive deferral treatment under the U.S.-UK tax treaty?
- How are distributions from UK accounts reported on U.S. tax returns?
- What are the differences in U.S. treatment of various UK schemes?
