Association for Computers and Taxation (ACT) Webinar: GILTI, FDII, FTC and the Impact of 861-8

This webinar uses an integrated case study to illustrate the impact of 861-8 on Sec. 965, GILTI, FDII, and FTC.


The allocation and apportionment of deductions under Treas. Reg. Section 1.861-8 is a critical factor in calculating the following statutory provisions:

  • Subpart F Income;
  • Global Intangible Low-taxed Income (“GILTI”);
  • DISC Taxable Income;
  • Domestic Production Activities Deduction;
  • Foreign Derived Intangible Income (“FDII”); and
  • Foreign Tax Credit Limitations.

This session focuses on the application of the 1.861-8 regulations using an integrated Case Study to demonstrate the impact on Subpart F, GILTI, FDII, and the separate FTC limitations.  The Case emphasizes the need to perform “what-if” modeling using alternative methods, especially considering the uncertainty surrounding the impact of 1.861-8 on the GILTI deduction.
