OECD Proposes first Steps to Combat Tax Base Erosion and Profit ShiftingOctober 06, 2014
The OECD works to fix international tax rules.
In an ongoing effort to end tax base erosion and artificial profit shifting to avoid taxes, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has released its first recommendations for an international corporate tax renovation. The plan is based on the BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) action plan which is looking to help governments protect their tax bases.
What is included in the plan?
There are several elements the Action plan focuses on, including:
- Realigning taxation to restore the intended benefits of international standards and to end tax treaty abuse.
- Ensuring that pricing outcomes are in line with value creation by focusing on transfer pricing and intangibles.
- Opposing harmful tax procedures.
