Global Tax Planning: What You Need to Know about OECD BEPS

Course Overview
It is essential for businesses to make certain that the story they tell to the capital markets (the public "face" of their enterprise) aligns with the information filed on their tax returns (the private "face" of their entity). Attorney Imke Gerdes, a partner in the firm of Baker & McKenzie, reminds us that, as a result of the OECD's Base Erosion Profit Shifting (BEPS) action plan, you can no longer assume that the information on your tax returns is private and confidential and will not be compared to other publicly available financial data.

Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Explain why businesses must be concerned about the tax implications of what the enterprise (and its workers) post online;
  • Identify the different authorities that permit different jurisdictions to exchange tax information;
  • Identify the four minimum standards of the BEPS inclusive framework; and
  • Identify the ways in which inter-company transactions for transfer pricing are now reported.
