19–1 Tax credits A U.S.-based MNC has a foreign subsidiary that earns $250,000 before

local taxes, with all the after-tax funds to be available to the parent in the form of

dividends. The applicable taxes consist of a 33% foreign income tax rate, a foreign

dividend withholding tax rate of 9%, and a U.S. tax rate of 34%. Calculate the net

funds available to the parent MNC if:

a. Foreign taxes can be applied as a credit against the MNC’s U.S. tax liability.

b. No tax credits are allowed.

P19–3 Exchange rates Fred Nappa is planning to take a wine-tasting tour through Italy

this summer. The tour will cost 2,750 euros (€) and includes transportation, hotels,

and a guide. Fred estimates that round-trip airfare from his home in North Carolina

to Rome, Italy, will be $1,490; he also will incur another $300 (U.S.) in incidental

travel expenses. Fred estimates the cost of meals in Italy to be about €500, and he

will take an additional $1,000 to cover miscellaneous expenditures. Currently, the

exchange rate is US$1.3411/€1.00 (or €.7456/US$1.00).

a. Determine the total dollar cost of the trip to Italy.

b. Determine the amount of euros (€) Fred will need to cover meals and miscellaneous

expenditures.

P19–5 Euromarket investment and fund raising A U.S.-based multinational company has

two subsidiaries, one in Mexico (local currency, Mexican peso, MP) and one in Japan

(local currency, yen, °Õ). Forecasts of business operations indicate the following

short-term financing position for each subsidiary (in equivalent U.S. dollars):

Mexico: $80 million excess cash to be invested (lent)

Japan: $60 million funds to be raised (borrowed)

The management gathered the following data:
