On 5 June 2021, the G7 Finance Ministers issued a statement indicating that they have reached an agreement on updated international tax rules.

The G7 agreement addresses two core issues with two sets of rules. The first set, the Pillar One rules, involve the reallocation of taxable profits of the largest multinationals to ‘market jurisdictions’.  Essentially, it is a new profit allocation mechanism where at least 20% of the profit of a multinational group above a nominated profit threshold of 10% will be allocated to market jurisdictions.  The second set, the Pillar Two rules, seek to set a global effective tax rate of at least 15% for large multinationals operating around the world.

Multinational groups who may be affected by BEPS 2.0 should start considering the potential impact for themselves and their relevant stakeholders.
