The question of the hour for many multi-national conglomerates and San Diego businesses with international distribution and supply channels is “How will international business change in the coming months?” The answer is surrounded in a cloud of Washington posturing and floated proposals. One thing seems certain: The United States Government and the IRS want to be able to more efficiently and thoroughly track the movement of money and corporate assets around the globe and tax American business entities for all of their income regardless of where it is generated.
For the time being we can only focus on the tax laws in place, and this will in all likelihood govern business as we know it through the rest of 2017. Even if a new corporate tax policy was passed the implementation of these policies and the ensuing court battles may delay practical changes to present business strategy. In the meanwhile, the IRS remains focused upon Multi-National Entities (MNEs) and corporate transfers of goods and services between affiliated business entities around the world. Their concern is a perceived abuse of transfer pricing as a method to shield corporate income from taxation, and the implementation of layered corporate structures which allow income to be realized in international tax jurisdictions that provide lower rates of taxation.
