On Monday 5 October, the OECD will publish its final recommendations on “Base Erosion and Profit Shifting” (BEPS) (http://www.oecd.org/tax/beps.htm ), its policy response to perceived aggressive tax avoidance by multinational corporations. Endorsed by the G20 Finance Ministers and Heads of State, the BEPS project consists of 15 Actions addressing many issues across the tax spectrum varying from transparency to financing to transfer pricing.
“The global tax landscape is fundamentally changing and the OECD’s BEPS project is putting tax firmly on the strategic business agenda.
“The Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) proposals are a hugely important development. They will impact any business that operates in multiple territories. We are looking at what could potentially be the biggest shake-up in corporate and international tax in decades.”
KPMG in the UK has a dedicated webpage on BEPS here with some comment and predictions and will be adding to this on 5 October with views and insights on the OECD’s proposals. Chris Morgan will be available for comment.
