Title: Guidance Regarding Foreign Base Company Sales Income 
Abstract: The proposed regulations provide guidance relating to the manufacturing exception from foreign base company sales income (FBCSI), as defined in section 954(d), with respect to arrangements where the property sold by a controlled foreign corporation (CFC) is manufactured, produced, or constructed pursuant to a contract manufacturing arrangement. These regulations also provide two new manufacturing rules that address a CFC's use of multiple branches that engage in manufacturing, producing, constructing, growing, or extracting activities either with two different items of property or with respect to the same item of property. In addition, these regulations clarify the proper scope and application of the treaty purchasing or selling activities performed by or through a branch or similar establishment as being performed on behalf of the CFC. Finally, the regulations clarify the relationship between the reporting of sales income and "sales activity." These regulations, in general, will affect United States shareholders of controlled foreign corporations.
