Why anti-inversion is anti-American
First published in BNA Bloomberg Tax Planning International, December 2014
Arguably, limiting US multinational corporations (MNCs) from inverting may be a necessity, but if companies are expected to remain competitive and incentivised, the government must consider lowering the federal corporate tax rate.
The recent anti-inversion regulations present an additional obstacle to MNCs achieving competitive tax rates with overseas peers. These barriers could deter entrepreneurs from setting up a business in the US, as, although the tax rules are easy to navigate during startup, such entrepreneurs face complex tax implications once the business becomes profitable.
