International Tax

Our Expertise
Keeping you ahead of international tax developments

Whether you’re a U.S. company seeking opportunities overseas, or a foreign investor in the United States, international tax compliance can be cumbersome. If you don’t have the right support, you could be putting your organization at risk for lost opportunities or hefty fines.

Our international tax specialists can assist your business with comprehensive tax planning services. We bring a range of offerings — planning for cross-border transactions, strategies to keep your global effective tax rate low, global mobility services, and IC-DISC, FDII, GILTI, and foreign tax credit planning — to help you get ahead of local, state, federal, and international tax law compliance — and stay informed.

Global tax planning

When facing uncertainty, a strong international tax strategy is crucial. We offer international insights to help you navigate complex global markets, putting the resources of our global firm behind every decision. From cross-border taxation issues, to international compliance requirements, to structuring decisions, our team of international specialists will prepare you for tomorrow, next year, and the decades to come.

U.S. and foreign tax compliance

Tax compliance around international transactions has become the focus of tax authorities around the globe. Our team works with you and your staff to ensure proper and timely filing of all required compliance returns to avoid costly penalties.

Global mobility services

Strong global mobility programs are built on competitive and tax-efficient policies. Our global mobility team can advise you on the business and tax consequences of global employee assignments, as well as in the management of global talent to optimize costs and investments in alignment with overall business objectives.


Mergers and acquisition tax

Our international specialists offer merger and acquisition support through tax structuring, tax modeling, and transactional costs analysis to minimize global tax liability, and increase your bottom line.


Global tax due diligence

When it comes to due diligence, our team’s focus spans the globe. Buyers must consider the effect of foreign operations on a transaction’s taxation and overall deal value. Our team of experts can help you navigate the issues that can arise when purchasing a business that operates outside the United States.


Foreign-derived intangible income (FDII)

The FDII regime offers a deduction for corporate taxpayers with foreign customers, which can dramatically reduce their effective tax rate. Our team can help you determine if you qualify for the FDII deduction and assess how it may benefit you.


Interest charge-domestic international sales corporations (IC-DISCs)

An IC-DISC helps U.S. manufacturers exporting goods achieve significant tax savings. We find that closely held businesses with qualified export revenues exceeding $1 million gain the most from this structure, but almost any U.S.-based exporter can derive some benefit from an IC-DISC.

GILTI and anti-deferral planning (GILTI)

The new GILTI rules have turned traditional international tax planning on its head. GILTI creates additional U.S. taxation of worldwide income, but it’s not all bad. Our tax professionals can devise a strategy that makes the most of the GILTI rules.


Foreign tax credit planning and compliance

Foreign tax credits are essential to avoiding double taxation. Our team of professionals can minimize the global tax burden on your multinational organization by maximizing your foreign tax credit.

Transfer pricing

With rules enforced in virtually every country, transfer pricing is an increasing area of focus for taxation authorities around the globe. The rules on correctly setting, and then defending, arm’s-length intercompany pricing are complex, and many countries require detailed documentation. With foreign market experience, we can, not only assist with compliance, but can help you plan ahead to avoid risk and optimize your tax position.
