GILTI is generally calculated as the net tested income of all CFCs, minus the 10% return on the QBAI of all CFCs with tested income. The proposed § 250 regulations issued in March 2019 have helpfully extended the 50% GILTI deduction to individuals electing under § 962 to be taxed like corporations on their GILTI. However, in these circumstances, the § 962 election would not provide a higher value for sale. Furthermore, the election is only available to 10% US shareholders who are deemed individuals.

The Treasury and the IRS have also indicated a possible concern with this kind of double-dip in the pre-amble to hybrid debt regulations. In certain cases, enhanced depreciation and amortisation deductions resulting from a Section 338 election could push the acquired CFC into a tested loss. This tested loss would favourably reduce GILTI inclusions by offsetting other CFCs’ tested income, but it also would result in a loss of QBAI and possibly a loss of foreign tax credits. Unlike other foreign tax credit baskets, excess credits in the GILTI basket cannot be carried back or forward to other tax years. Reducing the GILTI in these circumstances might only produce marginal US tax benefits by reducing expense allocations to GILTI basket income.

As is the case with US sellers, the importance of reducing GILTI may vary depending on the US buyer’s circumstances. A US buyer that sees their CFC earn a substantial tested income at a blended foreign tax rate of 5% will be strongly incentivised to limit further GILTI inclusions. The higher value will also materially increase the amount of qualified business asset investment if the target has substantial tangible property, which will result in a reduced GILTI inclusion for the US parent company.
CFCs owned by non-corporate investors will face significant issues on exit. If a buyer were to make a Section 338 election, the sellers’ anticipated capital gain on sale (which is already taxed at a 20% rate), would be converted to GILTI ordinary income and taxed at a 37% rate. Taxpayers have considered resorting to self-help in this regard. The US seller could contractually enforce a foreign buyer to engage in a Section 338 election, which would treat the target CFC as selling all of its assets prior to the sale of its stock to the buyer. The election could be considered helpful to the US seller but have no impact on the foreign buyer.
A prolific writer, Will has published numerous articles, including in the Journal of Taxation, Journal of Corporate Taxation, International Tax Journal and Practicing Law Institute’s Corporate Tax Practice Series.
