Whether you are a growing multinational company with subsidiaries all over the globe, or a small, closely-held company that owns a Canadian subsidiary, you will have to file IRS Form 5471 for every foreign corporation that you own. Although an information return, the Form 5471 is the place the IRS starts when auditing U.S. businesses that own foreign corporations. As a result, the proper preparation of the Form 5471 will offer the opportunity to document your planning and make that planning audit proof. In this audio conference, you will learn the law behind and the mechanics of how to prepare a Form 5471.
