Corporate inversion is defined as an international corporation reincorporating in a different country, changing from a U.S. corporation to an offshore jurisdiction that is usually a tax haven and therefore potentially reducing tax liability.   U.S. Corporations have availed themselves to the policy and have reaped the rewards of lower tax jurisdictions.   However, these tax inversions can be complex and are currently politically controversial.   We will discuss the benefits of  employing corporate tax inversions, including potential benefits for future shareholders and generating shareholder value, proposed legislation affecting corporate inversions (i.e., the Stop Corporate Inversions Act of 2014), and retroactive implications of tax reform.           
I.   How Inversions can occur:
            a.  stock transactions,
            b.  an asset transaction,
            c.  drop down transaction combining the two.  
II.  History of Inversions and the Laws Enacted to Curb Abusive Transactions
            a.  1980s - corporate inversions begin as an obscure transaction but gain popularity (Several Fortune 500 companies take advantage of lower tax jurisdictions and increased shareholder value)

1994:  The Helen of Troy Transaction and Section 367(a) regulations,

o   Substantial Business Activities and Congressional Intent:

            b.  Proposed Legislation:
