IC-DISCS: A Substantial Business Tax Savings Opportunity

There are few tax incentives remaining for U.S. based companies doing business in foreign markets. Over the past few years, Congress has repealed or let lucrative incentives lapse. However, for companies that export goods to foreign markets, there is a little known tax incentive that can offer compelling benefits. The incentive known as the Interest Charged – Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC) offers qualifying companies a substantial tax savings opportunity. Our professionals have worked with dozens of companies to help them transition to this tax efficient structure. 

While this structure is attractive for many companies it is important to have an analysis conducted to ensure that the new structure will deliver the benefits expected. Our professionals will conduct a review of your company to assess key factors that include entity structure, qualifying export sales, annual estimates, and related compliance costs. IC-DISCs can also be used as an estate planning vehicle as well as a structure used to incentivize key employees and owners. Leveraging this information we are able to determine not only the immediate benefits but also project bottom line value to your company for an extended period.
