  • Inversions - special focus

    August 04, 2014

    Between 1983 and 2004 there were 29 inversion transactions out of the US. In the decade following, almost 50 companies restructured using the method. With foreign profits trapped offshore by an outdated, worldwide system which would hit them with a tax on repatriation, as well as a high tax rate, the temptation to consider an inversion is proving too much for US companies, particularly those in the highly-mobile pharmaceuticals sector. Whatever the motivation, inversions are in vogue. ITR’s special report looks at the knock-on impacts of the current wave of inversions, including shareholder pressure to consider an option they see their rivals pursuing and the possible inflammation of the tax morality debate in the US. We also bring you exclusive insight as to why Danaher is not looking to invert.
