Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

The US Treasury and IRS released the 2016-2017 Priority Guidance Plan, which highlights intended final regulations re: Sec. 956 for loans to foreign partnerships, and Sec. 367(d) transfers of intangible property to foreign corporations.

Treasury has stated its acknowledgment of concerns re: 385 rules, and intends to address them in rules still going forward for release in several weeks.  These rules are far-reaching (per the current proposed Regulations) and merit immediate attention by tax and treasury practitioners in all MNE’s.  Most importantly, the Sec. 385 rules re: loans/distributions are in addition to the current subjective debt/equity subjective rules and a long history of case law.  Accordingly the impact on documentation should be completed within the next 3 months by all MNE’s.

EY’s Global Tax Alert provides further details on the US international developments.
