5. Spotlight on United States Tax
Each week, we’ll put the spotlight on a topic covered in one of our classes. This time, let’s look at the US Controlled Foreign Corporations rules. While this was discussed in this week’s US Tax course, it’s also relevant for the Principles of International Taxation module.
A foreign corporation is a CFC if US shareholders own:
- more than 50% off the combined voting power of all classes of shares, or
- more than 50% of the total value of the foreign corporation.
A US shareholder is any US person owning at least 10% of the value off the foreign corporation.
There are two anti-deferral systems in place to prevent CFC’s sheltering income from US tax:
- Subpart F income, and
- Globally Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI).
