Developing Countries to Get Global Tax Deal Help
The OECD's Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting is aiming to help developing countries implement a global agreement to change how multinational companies are taxed, according to the co-chair of its steering committee. The agreement, which more than 130 countries signed up to in October, has two pillars. Pillar One reallocates a portion of the largest multinationals’ profits to market jurisdictions, while Pillar Two creates a global minimum tax rate of 15%. The two pillars come with enormous complexities, meaning some countries will need help to keep up with the pace of implementation, says Marlene Nembhard-Parker, chief tax counsel for legislation, treaties, and international tax matters at Tax Administration Jamaica and co-chair of the Inclusive Framework Steering Group.
