A U.S. shareholder of one or more Controlled Foreign Corporation (CFC) shall include in gross income its “global intangible low-taxed income” (GILTI) in a manner similar to subpart F income. The effect of this rule is to subject a U.S. shareholder to a tax on the combined net income of its CFCs that (1) is not otherwise taxed un the U.S. on a current basis and (2) exceeds a fixed routine return on the CFC’S associated business assets.
Some terms you need to understand in order to calculate the GILTI.
- Tested income
- Tested loss
- Shareholder’s net deemed tangible income return
- Net CFC tested income
- Tested foreign income taxes
