The US House and Senate have paved the way for the President’s signature on a bill that extends important international tax topics:
- Subpart F active financing exception – permanent extension
- 5-year extension of the CFC look-through rule (through 2019)
A summary of the bill is provided in EY’s Global Tax Alert:
Separately, the US has also indicated that regulations should be forthcoming before year-end for the country-by-country (CbC) reporting rules, which is good news for many.
These rules should provide some international tax certainty for US-based companies, notwithstanding the absence of significant reform for the worldwide tax system.
