Managing Partner, Senior Research Biologist

Coldstream Nature-Based Solutions, Inc.

I first found Lodder CPA when my current U.S. accountant was not filing my taxes properly. I also reached out to Lodder CPA to help me get caught up on previous years that were not filed as well as to help my through my renunciation process. I am a U.S. citizen living in Canada and I also own a business. Lodder CPA not only helped me get caught up on four years of taxes but they also helped guide me through the renunciation process. Lodder CPA was efficient, accurate and extremely helpful. You have peace of mind knowing they are handling your taxes even if your situation is extremely complex. Whether you are a company, individual or a U.S. citizen living abroad I couldn't have found a better accountant. I recommend 10/10.

PacificEast was becoming more complex in its cross-border and overall U.S. business. It was essential that accuracy and insights would be represented in the Corporate Accounting Department. Lodder CPA has communicated well and provided the excellence PacificEast requires.

Find answers to frequently asked questions about our services and international taxes.

We are selling our product from our U.S. company to customers located outside the U.S. What are the tax implications?

This income is included on your U.S. tax return. It’s also possible that this income is taxable in the foreign country. You would need to determine the tax implications with your tax professionals in the U.S. and abroad. If there is an income tax liability in the foreign country, then you may be able to obtain a foreign tax credit on the U.S. return to avoid double taxation.

Can I form a corporation in the foreign country to avoid paying the higher U.S. tax liability on this foreign income or at least defer the tax until the income is repatriated at a later date?

Possibly. However, there may be anti-tax deferral provisions such as Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI) that could apply that cause you to pay current tax on this non-U.S. income. You should seek tax advice to avoid onerous tax provisions.

Does GILTI apply to partnerships or pass-through entities?

No. GILTI applies to corporations who would otherwise be able to defer U.S. corporate income tax until a dividend is paid. Income from the partnerships or pass-through entities is includable on the U.S. company return in the year it is earned.

What is the U.S. tax on repatriated dividends from foreign affiliates?

Under current law, there is no tax since the U.S. corporation would obtain a 100% dividend deduction.

Are there U.S. tax incentives for a U.S. company with foreign sales?

Yes. U.S. corporations benefit from tax incentives such as deducting a portion of foreign-derived intangible income (FDII), linked to intangible assets held domestically. Additionally, the Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC) provides substantial tax savings for exporting U.S. products. Unlike tax shelters, IC-DISC facilitates permanent tax savings by transferring income through export sales commissions.
