IRS Releases Notice 2014-52 – Rules Regarding Inversions and Related Transactions #GATCA

The Department of the Treasury (Treasury Department) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are concerned that certain recent inversion transactions are inconsistent with the purposes of sections 7874 and 367 of the Internal Revenue Code (Code). The Treasury Department and the IRS understand that certain inversion transactions are motivated in substantial part by the ability to engage in certain tax avoidance transactions after the inversion that would not be possible in the absence of the inversion.
