This paper explores the impact dividend taxes exert on the dividends repatriated from foreign affiliates to their German parent company. Based on an augmented Lintner model of firms' dividend payout decisions, the paper focusses on cross-border intra-firm dividend payments of wholly-owned foreign affiliates in the manufacturing sector. Firm-level data from the Microdatabase Direct Investment (MiDi) of the Deutsche Bundesbank is used. Results firstly signal the validity of the original Lintner model for cross-border intra-firm dividend payments of German affiliates abroad, although the target payout ratio and the degree of dividend smoothing drops substantially once time invariant unobserved heterogeneity is controlled for. Secondly, results from an augmented Lintner model imply that increases in dividend taxes indeed have a statistically significant negative impact on the expected value of dividends repatriated: Evaluated at the overall mean dividend payment a one percentage point increase in the dividend tax rate would decrease dividends repatriated by about 3.5 percent. Evaluated at the mean of positive dividend payments a semi-elasticity of -1.6 is derived.

The NAGPRA Video Project is a training series produced in 2010. The National NAGPRA Program conducted fifty interviews in ten cities across the country. These interviews with tribal members, museum officials and Federal agency representatives provide hours of information on consultation, grants, notices, law making, dispositions, documentation and repatriation.

That emotional testimony became part of a series of hearings into what is sometimes called the Mexican repatriation of the 1930s. That's when the federal government rounded up more than a million people of Mexican ancestry from across the U.S., sometimes going door to door, and forced them into Mexico. More than 60 percent of the displaced were American citizens.

Balderrama has personal and professional motivations to tell this story: His great-uncles were repatriated. But, he said, as close as he and Rodriguez had been for many years, Rodriguez never told Balderrama that his father had also returned to Mexico under pressure. Rodriguez didn't divulge that until their book was going to press.

This accounting issue persists at the national level. The amount of unrepatriated Native American remains reported by institutions is a minimum estimate of individuals and institutions frequently adjust these numbers when they reinventory groups of remains. Some institutions that are subject to NAGPRA have also entirely failed to report the remains in their possession.

The paper draws on open-source data and interviews with key players from selected countries. It concludes with a series of existing challenges and presents key learnings on institutional cooperation, local level measures and individual reintegration.

Following a series of negotiations between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Government of Switzerland, the Swiss government will restitute $321 million of funds illicitly acquired by the family of the late Former President of Nigeria General Sani Abacha.

The parties have agreed to establish a monitoring framework for the use of the repatriated funds that will enhance transparency and accountability. To that end, the Federal Government of Nigeria will engage civil society organizations to help monitor the use of the funds.

In 2005-2006, the funds were returned directly from Switzerland to the Nigerian Government, and were programmed into the national budget and utilized by the Nigerian government in line with its National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS). At that time, at the request of, and in agreement with the Nigerian and Swiss Governments, the World Bank carried out an ex-post analysis on the use of the repatriated funds, particularly in terms of the contribution for these funds to NEEDS. The Bank analysis took a two-pronged approached looking at general budget expenditure trends at the macro level while also conducting a field survey of randomly selected projects funded under the budget program. Our role was limited to analyzing spending of repatriated funds after they were disbursed. We had no role in supervising the implementation.

From 1959 through 1984, approximately 90,000 Koreans and six thousand Japanese spouses and children from Japan were "repatriated" to North Korea. Originally defined as a "humanitarian relocation" of colonial immigrants back to their homeland, Ryang posits that this mass relocation would can be re-defined as government-condoned and -enacted human trafficking.

Alexis Pedrick: Abdul-Aliy wrote another op-ed for the Inquirer and included a PDF of Paul's report with. The article got a lot of attention and Abdul-Aliy helped organize a protest calling for all the skulls in the Morton Collection to be repatriated. Abdul-Aliy asked Paul to speak, and he did. On April 8th, 2021, a huge crowd of protestors gathered.

Before the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, foreign profits of U.S. multinational enterprises (MNEs) were subject to U.S. taxes, but only when repatriated. This system incentivized firms to keep profits abroad, and, by the end of 2017, U.S. MNEs had accumulated approximately $1 trillion in cash abroad, held mostly in U.S. fixed-income securities.2 Under the TCJA, the United States shifted to a quasi-territorial tax system in which profits are taxed only where they are earned (subject to minimum taxes); henceforth, U.S. MNEs' foreign profits will therefore no longer be subject to U.S. taxes when repatriated. As a transition to this new tax system, the TCJA imposed a one-time tax (payable over eight years) on the existing stock of offshore holdings regardless of whether the funds are repatriated, thus eliminating the tax incentive to keep cash abroad.3

Balance of payments data show that U.S. firms repatriated $777 billion in 2018, roughly 78 percent of the estimated stock as of end-2017 of offshore cash holdings. Repatriation was strongest in the first half of 2018, when $510 billion was brought back, and continued throughout 2018, albeit at a slower pace (figure 1). Despite this slowing down, repatriation flows could remain above their pre-TCJA levels because the TCJA eliminated the tax incentives for keeping profits abroad. For reference, the Homeland Investment Act of 2004 (HIA, also known as the "tax holiday"), which provided a temporary one-year reduction in the repatriation tax rate, resulted in $312 billion repatriated in 2005, of an estimated $750 billion held abroad.4 It should be noted that repatriation reflects the transfer of funds to the United States in purely accounting terms: The funds previously held by a foreign affiliate are now held by the U.S. parent.

The potential effect of repatriated funds since the passage of the TCJA on firm financing patterns and investment decisions has garnered considerable investor attention.5 The analysis detailed here shows that funds repatriated in 2018 have been associated with a sharp increase in share buybacks. The evidence of an effect on investment is not as clear cut. While the data show an increase in investment in 2018 by the top repatriating firms, investment by such firms had already been on an upward trend prior to the TCJA, making it arguably more difficult to know how much of the increase can be attributed specifically to repatriation versus other contemporaneous factors, like other changes in policy or economic conditions. Of course, it may be too early to reach a definitive conclusion, as increases in investment may take longer to fully materialize.

Figure 2 shows that immediately after the passage of the TCJA in late December 2017, share buybacks rose sharply for the top 15 cash holders, with the ratio of buybacks to assets more than doubling in 2018 (red bars).7 In dollar terms, buybacks among this group of firms increased from an annual total of $86 billion in 2017 to $231 billion in 2018. Even among the top 15 cash holders, the largest holders accounted for the bulk of the share repurchases: in 2018, the top 5 cash holders accounted for 65 percent of the total repatriated by the top 15, and the top holder alone accounted for 32 percent. Buybacks for nonfinancial S&P 500 companies other than the top 15 cash holders also increased (blue bars), but by notably less than buybacks for the top 15 holders; as a result, the difference in the buybacks-to-assets ratio between the two groups more than doubled in the year following the passage of the TCJA (black line). Firms can also pay out cash to shareholders through dividends; however, unlike buybacks, dividends were virtually unchanged for the top 15 cash holders relative to the same period the year before. Similarly, academic studies suggest that most of the repatriated funds during the HIA of 2004 were used to fund share buybacks (see Dharmapala, Foley, and Forbes (2011)). 041b061a72
