Course Description

Revisions to the United States Tax Code in 2017 made vast alterations to the tax landscape for multinational businesses controlled by United States taxpayers. The "Global Intangible Low Taxed Income" (GILTI) provisions of §951A expanded anti-deferral efforts by the United States, creating immediate inclusions for most types of income earned by controlled foreign corporations. The blow of this inclusion was softened by the simultaneous creation of §250 which permits a 50% reduction in tax rate for domestic corporate United States shareholders. Non-corporate shareholders are taxed on GILTI at ordinary income rates as high as 37%. Also created by §250 is a 37.5% tax reduction for domestic corporations earning "Foreign Derived Intangible Income" (FDII), making the tax rate on this income 13.125%. However, decisions in how to structure multinational operations are not as simple as comparing these rates.

Join us for a program covering the basics both of GILTI and FDII and how they fit within the United States international tax regime. This webinar will also detail the decision-making considerations surrounding these inclusions, including whether a domestic or foreign incorporation is preferable. This analysis includes assorted factors such as foreign tax credit availability and potential source-country tax reduction for domestic corporations under income tax treaties.

Learning Objectives:


  • Recognize the basics of GILTI and FDII and their role in U.S. international tax

  • Evaluate the decision-making considerations involved in using these exclusions

  • List assorted factors in these inclusions relating to tax credit availability and income tax treaties

About Our Presenter

Mccormick logo
McCormick Tax was established in 2022 to serve clients worldwide – no matter their size – on any and all needs in the United States international tax context. Our clients range from multi-billion dollar business enterprises to cost-sensitive startups, high-net-worth individuals to those with lower net worths but discrete (and often complex) international tax needs. Our firm’s founder – a non-accountant international tax attorney - has previously served as a partner (exclusively focused on international tax work) at an AmLaw200 law firm, a boutique tax, trusts and estates law firm, and a tax-focused accounting firm, giving extensive experience both with every aspect of international tax rules and every type of client with international tax needs. Transitioning from a large firm to an independent practice has also enabled our firm’s practitioners to significantly reduce their hourly billable rates – creating efficiencies for our clients and allowing us to work with clients of all sizes.

Our firm covers every aspect of United States international tax, trusts, and estates rules; we also assist our clients on more domestic-oriented United States tax needs. We work directly with clients; we also serve as “outsourced international tax counsel” for accounting, law, and advisory firms around the world. In that role, we assist wherever beneficial with those firms’ client needs in the international tax context, allowing those firms to hang onto clients/continue to work with those clients rather than losing them to firms with internal international tax teams. Our firm’s independent status gives us enormous flexibility in how we structure representations, ensuring we can serve in optimal fashion for whatever client needs arise.
