FDII and GILTI – Navigating tax reform in today’s global economy.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has created a host of new challenges for global businesses, making it more important than ever to have an experienced international tax accountant. New provisions including Foreign Derived Intangible Income (FDII), Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI) and deemed repatriation of income are creating new opportunities and obstacles for international companies and their shareholders.

For instance, Foreign Derived Intangible Income (FDII) rewards domestic companies taxed as C-corporations and U.S.-domiciled C-corporation subsidiaries of foreign multinational businesses with an effective tax rate of 13.125 percent. The FDII tax reform  imposes this rate on a portion of income derived abroad from the sale of goods, services property and royalties from licenses, patents and trademarks.

Conversely the GILTI tax reform provision, imposes a minimum effective tax rate of 10.5 percent on similar nonroutine portions of income and allows a foreign tax credit for only 80 percent of the foreign taxes paid to foreign jurisdictions. The combination of GILTI and FDII tax reform are intended to keep more intellectual property and profits in the U.S. The implications of these two provisions will require significant changes to financial reporting and accounting processes.

Another significant change in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is deemed repatriation of income. Deemed repatriation requires U.S. shareholders (including individuals) of certain foreign corporations to pay U.S. federal income tax based on the foreign corporation’s undistributed earnings and profits. This one-time cumulative deemed repatriation of earnings and profits is taxed as if it were actually repatriated by the U.S. shareholder as a dividend distribution. Although the media has associated this new rule with large multinational corporations, many individuals, trusts and businesses will need account for a one-time deemed repatriation on their 2017 tax returns.
