Consistent with our commitment to provide updated information on current tax issues, we provide KPMG International’s release providing action-by-action observations to help organizations understand the potential impacts of the final recommendations for the 15-point Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan released by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
On 5 October, the OECD released its final action plan recommendations for BEPS. While implementation and timing will vary across borders - and some European jurisdictions have already incorporated aspects of the plan - this final OECD release marks a crucial shift from the recommendation and consultation phase of BEPS to legislation and implementation.
