U.S. exporters can potentially generate large tax savings - roughly 20 percent of their original tax bill - by forming an IC-DISC (Interest-Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation). The most common type of IC-DISC acts, at least on paper, as the exporter’s sales agent. Yet, while the IC-DISC does have recordkeeping and capital requirements, it does not need to have a physical location, employ a single person or interact with any customers. In essence, it can be invisible to those who do business with the exporter, but yield a substantial reduction in the exporter’s tax bill.

We recently caught up with Elizabeth Manuel, a 2011 CSB grad (B.S. Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and a minor in Leadership Studies).

How do you feel about your educational experience at Cameron School of Business?

I truly valued my time in the CSB - from the professors to my classmates.

What was your favorite part of your degree?

I was able to study abroad in the summer of 2010 in Manchester, England and completed a few of my required marketing courses. This was a great experience to compare marketing concepts between Europe and the United States, while also visiting major businesses and organizations like Disneyland Paris and the Manchester United Football Club.

Guest Blogger: Dr. Ulku Clark, Associate Professor of Management Information Systems, Cameron School of Business.

According to a report by Juniper Research, the global cost of cybercrime is estimated to be over $2 trillion by 2019. North American breaches are projected to account for about 60 percent of all data breaches - due primarily to the value of the U.S. assets - but as other countries begin to use more advanced technology, cybercrime will have a much greater global impact.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”

Even in our ever-changing political and financial climate, we expect to see continuing growth in the demand for accounting graduates, particularly those who are able to earn licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). The United States Bureau of Labor reports that accountants are enjoying the fastest job growth over all other occupations, and that growth is expected to continue through 2024.
