Inbound and outbound transactions between the U.S. and other countries can lead to a host of tax implications requiring careful tax planning to avoid any unintended liability. Tax counsel and advisers must understand complex rules impacting these transactions applicable to both U.S. and foreign entities.
Tax reform created tax planning obstacles for outbound and inbound transactions. Outbound transactions involve U.S. taxpayers doing business or investing in foreign countries while inbound transactions involve foreign taxpayers doing business or investing in the United States. The type of entity used in a transaction along with the timing of elections and proper filing can all dramatically impact the tax implications of the transaction. Utilizing partnerships can provide tax benefits to both U.S. and foreign taxpayers if properly implemented.
It is essential that tax counsel and advisers recognize the issues and opportunities in using partnerships in structuring inbound and outbound transactions for both tax planning and compliance. Grasping an understanding of applicable tax law, special allocation rules and key tax aspects of the deal structure will ensure tax benefits for all parties involved in a transaction.
