    32. 32. Aerospace Exports from the United States:Another Reason to Manufacture “ dans la ZoneDollar”?• A growth opportunity• Comment y participer?• Size of U.S. Aerospace Exports Market: $85Billion• 72% of all civil aircraft and componentproduction: exported from the USA• 42% of all U.S. aerospace production is exported• Positive Trade Balance: $44 Billion for U.S.Aerospace Industry• Southeast mirrors national figures32

    35. 35. IC DISC StructureSummary of Benefits1. IC DISC can be paid commissions• Statutory formula – not required to be ArmsLength• Greater of - 4% of gross export sales from theUSA, or 50% of taxable income on those sales2. Can get Rate Arbitrage• Commission deduction – up to 40% benefit (Fed &States)• Payment from IC DISC to Qualified Foreign Co –likely zero Withholding Tax.• Replaces dividends from fully taxed income ofABC Aerospace, Inc. (USA) with deductiblecommissions followed by Dividend from IC-DISC3. IC DISC may also be used for export finance• May receive factoring fees of 2-3%• Additional Commission $3M for $100M exportsales, resulting in additional $1.2M tax savingsIssues1. Need to structure properly to get rate benefitABC Aerospace SA(Toulouse)ABC Aerospace USAInc. (South Carolina)(deducts Commissions)IC DISC (ABC Exports, Inc.Non-taxable(South Carolina)CommissionsDividendsBottom Line: Reduce U.S. Taxes on Exports by 35% to 40%.
    36. 36. IC DISC Structure – Illustrative ExampleSummary of Calculation1. IC DISC calculates commissions• Determines Export Sales and related COGS• Assumed 25% Gross profit here• Allocates and Apportions SG&A• Assumed 10% SG&A on export sales2. IC DISC receives commissions• 50% of taxable income on export sales3. IC-DISC may also receive factoring Income4. IC-DISC is not taxed on its profits5. IC DISC pays dividend to foreign owner• Payment from IC DISC to Qualified Foreign Co –likely five percent or zero Withholding Tax.Issues1. Maximization of benefits needs to be calculated correctlyIC-DISC12/31/2012TAX IMPACT OF DISCNo detail considered - 25% Gross ProfitSales 100,000,000COGS (75,000,000)Gross profit 25,000,000S.G.& A. * (10,000,000)Net income 15,000,000Commission calculation:4% of sales 1 4,000,00050% of profits 2 7,500,000Commission (greater of 1 or 2) 7,500,000= Taxable income of IC-DISCTax benefit C-Corp 40.0% 3,000,000Dividend withholding tax ** 5.0% (375,000)Tax savings Fed & states 2,625,000(Based on 0% Dividend W/H Rate)* SG&A on export sales generally less as exclusions applyAssumed overall net profit achievable on exports 15%.** Based on 5% withholding TaxFor Illustration Purposes only
    37. 37. • IC DISC provisions have been in US tax code since 1971• IC DISC is nontaxable and can be owned by a non-US company• If IC DISC owner is owned by a shareholder who has a treaty with the USA thatwas ratified after 1984 the tax treaty would control the taxation of the dividend paidfrom the IC DISC to its parent – last in time rule• Under certain circumstances the US / Denmark treaty the withholding tax rate iszeroHow an IC-DISC works:• IC DISC ABC Exports, Inc. is formed as a sister company to ABC AerospaceUSA , Inc.• ABC Aerospace USA, Inc. pays IC-DISC ABC Exports, Inc. a commissionon onexports• ABC Aerospaced USA , Inc. deducts commission from ordinary income taxed at35 percent federal tax (possibly it is also deductible for state tax purposes)• IC-DISC ABC Exports, Inc. pays no tax on the commissions on exports• IC DISC can pay a dividend to ABC Aerospace SA, Toulouse, France, effectivelyrepatriating 50% of the profits on Exports to France• Result is 35 – 40% percent tax savings on commissions and substantial subsidyto finance exports or other operations of ABC Aerospace USA, Inc. in the UnitedStates.Summary of IC DISC “Incitations Fiscales”
