When the OECD launched country-by-country (CbC) reporting almost ten years ago, we were told it was only going to be used as a risk assessment tool that would only be available to tax administrations. Unfortunately, all of this is about change—as many of us always expected. For most MNE groups, CbC reporting is going to go from being “just another informational report” to a return with very tangible tax and non-tax implications.
From 2024, businesses in-scope of Pillar Two—the OECD’s minimum effective tax rules—will be able to prove out of Pillar Two for a limited transitional period using their “qualified” CbC report. In addition, businesses operating within the EU (and potentially some other countries) will imminently be required to publicly disclose part—or perhaps all—of their CbC reports.
Join members from the KPMG Washington National Tax group to discuss how companies are rethinking their CbC data in light of these developments, and the increased emphasis that many companies are placing on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
This one-hour TaxWatch webcast will focus on:
- The history behind CbC and common issues/errors in the current practice
- The application of the Pillar 2 transitional CbC safe harbor
- The new dimension that public CbC brings to looking at data and telling your story
- How companies are approaching tax transparency.
