Watch On-Demand

The final reports on the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan have been released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and endorsed by the G20. These reports on the 15 BEPS focus areas reflect recommendations for significant changes in international tax laws and treaties. Attention has now turned to the actions that are taken by countries in response to these recommendations.

The impact of these changes will be felt well beyond the tax department. EY will examine the impact of BEPS on key business functions in a program of seven Thought Center Webcasts.

The fourth webcast in the series will focus on the implications that BEPS will have on financial accounting processes, including the increasing trend to prepare voluntary total tax contribution reports and the impact on wider functions in the organization such as treasury and legal.  With a clear implication on the tax compliance obligations of the business, we will explore the leading practices in controversy readiness and planning for Country-by-Country reporting.
