OECD and G20 BEPS Action Plan: Changes to the International Tax System
Disclosure of Aggressive Tax Planning Arrangements
- The (BEPS) Project, an ambitious plan undertaken jointly by the OECD and G20
to overhaul the global international tax system, culminated with a huge report
of recommendations that, if adopted, could have a significant impact on cross-border trade.
Require taxpayers to disclose their aggressive tax planning
Develop recommendations regarding the design of mandatory disclosure rules for aggressive or abusive transactions, arrangements, or structures, taking into consideration the administrative costs for tax administrations and businesses and drawing on experiences of the increasing number of countries that have such rules.
The work will use a modular design allowing for maximum consistency but allowing for country specific needs and risks. One focus will be international tax schemes, where the work will explore using a wide definition of “tax benefit” in order to capture such transactions.
The work will be co-ordinated with the work on co-operative compliance. It will also involve designing and putting in place enhanced models of information sharing for international tax schemes between tax administrations.
