As the global landscape for taxation undergoes significant transformations, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion Profit Shifting (BEPS) has been at the forefront, continuously evolving to address tax avoidance, enhance the coherence of international tax rules, and foster a more transparent tax environment.

BEPS 2.0, a pivotal aspect of this evolution, is now extending its scope to tackle challenges arising from the taxation of the digital economy.

The ongoing project, known as BEPS 2.0, comprises two key components:

  • Pillar One focuses on new nexus and profit allocation rules, aiming to allocate a larger portion of taxing rights over global business income to market countries.
  • Pillar Two encompasses rules for a new global minimum tax, endorsed in December 2021 by 141 jurisdictions participating in the BEPS 2.0 project.

At this juncture, multinational enterprises (MNEs) are navigating the complexities of implementing global minimum taxes. As organizations embark on their BEPS 2.0 compliance journey, they face the task of recalibrating internal processes, restructuring operations, and ensuring accurate calculations for new tax obligations. 

How we can help

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 outcome of these efforts could present you with a new set of pressures, including new demands for internal resources, the need to revamp tax policies, and additional investment requirements for new technology to handle new and greater compliance obligations.
