e-Bright has launched its fourth course of the Transfer Pricing courses: ‘BEPS for Beginners’. This course gives you the information you need to know about the OECD BEPS Action Plan.

Taxation is at the core of a country’s sovereignty, but in recent years multinationals have avoided taxation in their home countries by pushing activities abroad to low- or no-tax jurisdictions. This tax gap has remained unresolved for too long, according to many governments. The OECD addresses this growing problem by the creation of an Action Plan to address Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). This plan identifies a series of domestic and international actions to address the problem and sets timelines for their implementation. Therefore, the release of the BEPS project is considered to be a crackdown on tax arbitrage, which marks “the end of the golden era” for multinational enterprises.

What does BEPS mean for MNEs?

The first and foremost impact on MNEs’ performance is the sudden increase in business costs, i.e., land tax compliance. It is anticipated that a radical reform in global taxation will follow.

Which topics are covered in the course?

The Action Plan identified 15 actions along three key pillars: (1) introducing coherence in the domestic rules that affect cross-border activities, (2) reinforcing substance requirements in the existing international standards, (3) improving transparency as well as certainty. The allocation of 15 Actions around three pillars, described in the course, is depicted in the following diagram:
