About This Course:
As more U.S. companies view global markets as a necessity to survive and to grow, more U.S. companies own foreign subsidiaries to conduct foreign operations. Whether you are multinational with subsidiaries all over the globe or a closely-held business with 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 avoid audit-related pitfalls.
