U.S. Treasury Finalizes Controversial 385 Regulations on Intercompany Debt

Following six months of controversial public debate, on October 13, 2016 the U.S. Treasury Department released final 385 regulations. The new rules will require multinational companies to closely examine their existing intercompany transactions in order to avoid potential recast of related-party financing arrangements.
