Key highlights:

  • The BEPS project represents one of the most significant changes to the corporate tax landscape since 1928
  • For the majority of Actions, these documents mark the start of the implementation and practical delivery phase
  • Going forward, corporates will need to fundamentally rethink how they view taxes
  • Governments will have to think about how to attract businesses through corporate tax systems while maintaining a more level playing field globally
  • The OECD estimates that revenue losses from BEPS are up to USD 240 billion annually and hope that these proposals will go some way to addressing this tax gap.
