As part of its requirement for having a foreign operating subsidiary, the Company’s parent U.S. entity is required to file an informational Form 5471 to the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”), which is a form that explains the nature of the relationship between the foreign subsidiary and the parent company. From 2012 through the 2014, the Company did not file this form in a timely manner. As a result of the non-timely filings, the Company incurred a penalty from the IRS in the amount of $10,000 per year, or $30,000 in total, plus accrued interest, such penalty and interest having been accrued and is included in the accrued expenses and other payable figure in the September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021 consolidated balance sheet. The Company recorded the penalties for all three years during the year ended June 30, 2018. The Company is current on all subsequent filings. The Company’s tax advisor is awaiting a response from the IRS on this matter.
