video iconOECD cracks down on tax avoidance

On October 5th 2015 the OECD presented its final package for the comprehensive reform of international tax rules. This package will be discussed by G20 countries on 8th October in Lima, Peru. This represents a key stage in the OECD's 'Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project' (BEPS). Ratification of the BEPS project proposal will enable countries, especially in the developing world, to retain more revenues from large multi-nationals which hitherto had the freedom to 'artifically' shift revenues to low tax regimes in an attempt to minimise tax burdens.

The BEPS package also amends previous advice on the use of transfer pricing rules to curb tax avoidance arrangements.
