ARLINGTON, Va., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Twice a year, the Tax Management International Forum (IF) draws together leading tax practitioners from a dozen or more countries to discuss tax topics of multinational interest. Each Forum member is invited to review two 'fact patterns', and comment on how his/her native jurisdiction would likely respond given the context. On April 29, 2011, one of the topics discussed by the IF in Paris will be Controlled Foreign Corporation Regimes. BNA will offer a webinar: Controlled Foreign Corporation Regimes: A Multijurisdictional Perspective immediately following the conclusion of the Forum meeting.
Forum members representing four key jurisdictions (the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and Belgium) will explain the CFC regimes of those jurisdictions.
"Knowledge of the possible application of a country's controlled foreign corporation (CFC) regime is crucial for planning cross-border transactions and structures appropriately and keeping overall taxes to a minimum, says BNA International Managing Editor Harold Pskowski. "The operation of the CFC rules is an important factor in corporate determinations as to where to operate and locate corporate assets, and can be a significant influence on the worldwide corporate tax rate."
The history and objectives of each country's CFC regime
The meaning of a "controlled foreign corporation" for purposes of the regime
The type of income that is taxed on a current basis to the CFC's shareholders
The way in which such income is taxed to the shareholders
The impact of the Cadbury Schweppes' decision by the ECJ on the CFC regimes of EU countries
NOTE: All registrants will additionally receive a copy of the March 2011 issue of the Tax Management International Forum, containing papers by practitioners in 16 different countries discussing the tax treatment of controlled foreign corporations in their particular country.
