In today’s interconnected world, the reach of many businesses extends far beyond national borders, but comes with many challenges.
Branching out to the U.S. Market is exciting, but the US boasts the world’s most intricate tax code, with foreign subsidiary tax reporting being the pinnacle of complexity.

Plus the Foreign Subsidiary package includes Form 5471, Form 926, Form 8992, Form 8938, the FinCen 114, Form 8833 and more.
Individuals or U.S. entities that own a foreign corporation are required to file form 5471. It is a large and detailed form used to ensure money is not being hidden offshore. This is a difficult and time consuming form to prepare.
Form 8833 is used if you are taking a tax treaty-based position on a tax return.
This form is used when your company has transferred tangible or intangible assets to a foreign corporation or subsidiary.
Form 8992 is used to report the Global Intangible Low Taxed Income.
Form 8938 is part of FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). This requires you to report specified foreign asset to the IRS each year.
FinCen 114 is a foreign bank account report that is submitted to the U.S. Treasury department. It is similar to the FATCA form, but goes to a different branch of government.
