The existing separate tax regime for foreign exchange gains and losses of companies is to be ended, and exchange gains and losses are to be taxed in accordance with the provisions relating to corporate debt and derivative contracts.

United Slates, 373 U.S. The ACT is a separate tax, and is not properly viewed as a prepayment or interim credit or esti- mated tax of mainstream corporate tax.
They provide that both the "corporation tax" and the "advance corporation tax" are to be recognized as a foreign "income" tax for purposes of the foreign tax credit provisions of United States law.
Similarly, if the United Kingdom subsidiary surrenders its "advance corporation tax" to a second-tier subsidiary, then the provisional credit allowed to the corporation that paid the advance tax is reversed and the advance tax is allowable as a credit in the year it is applied against the "corporation tax" liability of the second-tier subsidiary.

 What is the United Kingdom Independence Party?
But since then the EU has continued as a bastion of state regulation that threatens to undermine or even reverse the economic transformation of Britain into a deregulated low corporate tax haven it became under the Tories’ former leader.
They too are, like UKIP, hostile to any attempts to integrate Europe in a way that would see it develop as a serious rival to US imperialism—fearing that this would undermine Britain’s traditional role as a “bridge” between Europe and the US, and weaken it against its main continental rivals.
Such policies echo many of those held by the Conservatives and Labour, both of whom support only those aspects of EU policy that serve the efforts of the major transnational corporations and banks to more effectively exploit working people across Europe.

 Tax Reform: Russia, 1; United States, 0
Unlike our Internal Revenue Code, which taxes income once when you earn it and a second time when you invest it, the Russian flat tax does not double-tax corporate income or impose a capital gains tax on stocks, bonds and home sales.
Even the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development called Russia's flat tax system a "key accomplishment," a stunning admission since the Paris-based bureaucracy is infamous for complaining about the "unfairness" of nations using low tax rates to lure jobs and capital from high-tax nations.
In the past, politicians in Congress have said a flat tax is impractical -- even though jurisdictions such as Hong Kong and Bermuda enjoyed rapid growth in part because of their flat-tax systems.

 Flat Tax Revolution
What audacity Bremer demonstrated, to achieve in Iraq something we have yet to accomplish in the United States - fundamental tax reform and simplification that has worked so well in Hong Kong for years and is working for Russia under President Vladimir Putin, who cut the top rate to 13 percent.
Actually, L. Paul Bremer didn't even impose a single-rate flat tax; he simply ordered that "the highest individual and corporate income tax rates shall not exceed 15 percent," which is perfectly consistent with lower tax rates for lower-income individuals.
In addition to their burdensome tax systems, all of these countries are not free politically; they are protectionist, and they all are marked by extreme government intervention in the economy.

The impact of the revised Barbados-United States Double Taxation Treaty is already being felt in corporate America.
And officials in both Washington and Bridgetown say they expect more and more United States companies, which have established a corporate presence and do business in Barbados, to tell shareholders how the changes are affecting their bottom line in the months ahead.
In a report to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, Interpool stated that the revised treaty would force it to increase its net deferred tax liability during the fourth quarter of last year, moving it to a tax rate thatís higher than the three per cent currently allowed.

 Corporation - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch
In the United States several corporate forms exist; the name of "corporation" generally applies to a business, run for profit, to which one of the states of the United States (or other governmental body with that power, including Congress and Puerto Rico) has granted a corporate charter.
This leads to the so-called "double-taxation" of corporate profits: a given profit becomes subject to income tax twice, once at the corporate level, as an item of income, and once at the stockholder level, as a dividend.
A corporation (usually known in the United Kingdom and Ireland as a company) is a legal entity (distinct from a natural person) that often has similar rights in law to those of a natural person.

During the 1990s, non-financial corporations as a group paid an average of 25.3 percent of their profits in federal corporate income taxes, according to new Congressional Research Service estimates.
While additional taxes due to state and local taxes are an issue, this does not negate the fact that a tax system with a flat rate and a sizeable deduction (Dick Armey's proposal has a $26,200 deduction for a married couple) results in a progressive income tax rate.
