With the OECD’s plan on base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) more than halfway to completion, multinationals everywhere are beginning to pay serious attention to the standards laid out in the BEPS project.  While it may be years before most countries involved in the project adopt the final recommendations, several key jurisdictions are already changing their laws in response to BEPS concerns—a key example being the UK’s new “diverted profits tax.” And even where countries are waiting to formally adopt new laws, BEPS is undeniably having an impact on how both governments and multinationals are viewing transfer pricing.  

Countries such as China, the UK, and Mexico have largely embraced the OECD’s proposals, while the vast majority of the 44 countries involved in the project are being more circumspect as they await the final series of BEPS agenda items to be issued at the end of 2015.  BEPS is already affecting tax administration on such issues as information exchanges, country-by-country reporting, tax treaty arrangements and dispute resolution. Multinationals are wary about entering deals that could be undone at a time when state aid cases are on the rise and countries such as Ireland and Luxemburg are coming under the scrutiny of the OECD.
