  • New Zealand’s BEPS proposals go beyond OECD’s recommendations

    With a general election looming, the New Zealand government has unveiled a raft of measures intended to counter base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) that, in some respects, go further than any of the OECD’s BEPS recommendations. Brendan Brown and Tim Stewart of Russell McVeagh in New Zealand explain the recent announcements, which include measures to address permanent establishment avoidance, significant changes to the transfer pricing and thin capitalisation rules, measures to address hybrid mismatch arrangements, and various measures (going beyond the OECD’s BEPS recommendations) to increase Inland Revenue’s enforcement powers.
