The OECD recently released implementation guidance on filing a country-by-country report under the BEPS Action Plan 13.
The OECD recently released implementation guidance on filing a country-by-country report under the BEPS Action Plan 13, "Guidance on the Implementation of Transfer Pricing Documentation and Country-by-Country Reporting". In particular, the implementation guidance states that a €750 million threshold would exclude 85% to 90% of multinational enterprises from having to file the required country-by-country form, but would capture 90% of corporate revenues.
It appears that, if implemented, companies beneath the €750 million threshold (approximately $855 million U.S.) would not have to file a country-by-country form. However, the OECD and G20 will review the implementation of the new standard in 2020, and consider the appropriateness of the revenue threshold, as well as whether additional or other data needs to be reported on the form.
Additionally, multinational enterprises that meet or exceed the revenue threshold need to start planning for country-by-country because 2015 may be the last year for which the information will not be reported in the country-by-country template.
