Our familiarity with the tax advantages for expatriate taxes aids us in analyzing your situation to help you plan effectively for your U.S. taxes. We review your foreign income and benefits, including housing allowance and we review tax treaties relative to your location, foreign taxes to which you may be subject, and your length of stay. With this information, we can determine which, if any, foreign income exclusions apply to you through the Bona Fide Residence Test or the Physical Presence Test and housing exclusions. In addition, we analyze your situation to see if you can also take advantage of foreign tax credits for taxes you pay and if the credit is more advantageous than the income exclusion, or if you are eligible to receive both.
For our corporate and individual clients invested in foreign corporations, we will report applicable disclosures – whether it be disclosing a foreign owner on Form 5472, or information about a foreign company in which you are invested and its activities on Form 5471. We have experience in analyzing your transactions for disclosure between yourself and the foreign entities and also with respect to determining if the transactions qualify for Subpart F income reporting and taxation. We have helped our clients with tax planning regarding repatriation of foreign earned income. We also understand the intricacies involved with the foreign tax credit calculations.
With respect to foreign owners, we have experience in assisting our clients with determining if U.S. withholding is required on partnership income or if an 1120-F is required to be filed to report U.S. income of a foreign corporation. We can help those US companies looking to expand overseas, navigate the complexities and work with your foreign based accountants to ensure proper US compliance. We have also assisted foreign corporations in obtaining tax identification numbers for the required reporting as well as providing advice should expatriate taxes apply to your employees.
We also work with US companies that export goods to see if they qualify for the IC-DISC (Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corp) tax treatment in addition to foreign tax credits. Set-up of the IC-DISC could provide significant tax savings as the qualifying company can receive a large portion of its income at the lower 15% capital gains rate.
