BEPS 2.0 is a game-changer for tax functions: its 15% global minimum tax rate is a seismic shift.

Its requirements come onstream from 2024 for UK headquartered businesses, giving multinational enterprises (MNEs) little time to tackle four key priorities: 

Shape your strategic approach Understand what BEPS 2.0 means for you Make the case for change Identify your data requirements and gaps
Make the case for change

Getting the business’s buy-in for what you need to achieve will be vital to securing budget for the tax department. Who will you need to engage – and what will convince them?

Understand what BEPS 2.0 means for you

What are its implications for your tax profile, operations, processes, workflows, sourcing models, technology and capabilities? What needs to change – and how?

Identify your data requirements and gaps

Complying with BEPS 2.0, and performing the necessary tax calculation, will demand intensive data-gathering and reporting. What data will you need? Does it exist? Where does it sit, and how will you access it?

Shape your strategic approach

For some MNEs, BEPS 2.0 may trigger a wider tax transformation, to address the ever-growing demands on tax functions. How far will your response go?

Nobody understands the regulation like our experts. We’ll work with you to unpick its impact on your tax function; formulate the right strategic response; and plan your implementation roadmap.

Our end-to-end support includes:

  • Horizon-scanning – to monitor how different countries are implementing the BEPS 2.0 rules and react when new rules are implemented by Governments around the world.
  • Safe harbour impact assessments and country-by-country reporting (CBCR) health-checks – to assess how your CBCR process impacts your BEPS 2.0 results and identify any changes to consider.
  • Accounting and assurance support – to understand the impact on your tax reporting process, plan the narrative and detailed financial statement disclosures on the impact of BEPS on your interim and annual financial statements.
  • Data evaluation and management – to identify gaps, plan remediation and discover how data can be managed effectively through technology, automation and process transformation.

We’ll also work with you to identify and deploy the most suitable tax technology to support your Pillar 2 processes – whether that’s a KPMG propriety solution, third-party software, or one of our Alliance partners.
