The OECD’s ‘BEPS 2.0’ initiative will change the global tax landscape — either because of its success and implementation or its failure and the chaos that would follow. Even if there is no global consensus for BEPS 2.0, much of its substance is likely to live-on through unilateral measures. Thus, it is critical to understand how BEPS 2.0 will affect your organization — both its profit reallocation proposals (known as Pillar One) and its global minimum tax measures (known as Pillar Two). The ultimate outcome of this effort could present a new set of pressures, including new demands for internal resources, revamping tax policies and investing in new technology to handle new compliance obligations. 

Our approach:

Understanding the impact of BEPs and the potential organizational responses requires insights of many tax specialties, including diverse areas such as: international tax, to transfer pricing, to restructuring, to policy and lobbying and to tax department process and control design. International tax professionals from across the global organization, help KPMG firm clients understand, communicate, and evaluate appropriate actions in light of the BEPS 2.0 initiative. They can assist you in analyzing how the proposals may affect your organization and give you the insights you need to communicate with senior executives, audit committees and other stakeholders using the KPMG BEPS 2.0 Model, a proprietary modeling tool powered by KPMG Digital Gateway, which has been updated to reflect the OECD’s latest Blueprint for Pillar One and Pillar Two released in late 2020.
