The OECD has recently published a revised timeline for its Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan that can be accessed via the attached link:
With a short timeframe for comment to multiple initiatives, it is imperative to review this timeline change, especially if comments are to be prepared. This revision in timing also provides transparency for the OECD’s aggressive objectives to assess the milestones accordingly.
The OECD timeline also highlights the expedited actions of individual EU Member States, and other countries, to implement independent BEPS initiatives that may, or may not, be in alignment with the OECD’s final proposals. To the extent such objectives are significantly different in principle and approach, it has not yet been envisaged if, and how, such disparities will be resolved by taxpayers and tax authorities.
