Bloomberg BNA has developed a hands-on workshop to provide U.S. outbound international tax practitioners with training to thoroughly comply with the reporting of foreign earnings set forth in the IRS forms 5471, 8865, and 8858, as well as the foreign tax credit information set forth on the Form 1118. As the number of foreign entities owned by U.S. multinationals has increased so has the IRS scrutiny of the reporting of the earnings information of those entities. The nature of the reporting is oftentimes very complex and therefore the need to adequately understand the forms and their requirements is very important. This course uses a hands-on approach, directly working with the forms, to focus exclusively on the issues contained in properly reporting the identifying information, the foreign entity income statement, balance sheet, E&P adjustments, etc. In addition, the course discusses the various reporting requirements for cross border transactions (e.g. Form 926, Form 5471 Schedule O).


This course is an introductory course regarding the preparation and review of the U.S. international tax compliance forms. This program is transitional which is appropriate for newly admitted attorneys. This program is designed for VPs of tax and accounting, corporate tax directors, corporate tax managers, tax accounting managers and supervisors, and tax professionals who work in the area of international tax compliance.
