  • BEPS implementation in the US - Now comes the hard part

    July 10, 2015

    While the OECD has political backing and momentum behind it, the organisation has no binding authority to implement legislation, so the engagement of key jurisdictions including the US will be central to the project's ultimate success. Ryan Dudley, partner at Friedman, explains why the hard yards still lie ahead.

  • The Brockman brief: UK diverted profits tax: The extrapolation effect

    May 27, 2015

    The UK's diverted profits tax (DPT) was developed, and enacted, quickly in the weeks leading to the general election. The legislation was a two-pronged attack: on transactions having insufficient economic substance and the avoidance of permanent establishment (PE). The legislation went into effect April 1 2015 and there have been hints that other countries are looking at similar moves; but exactly what tax doctrines will other countries adopt to achieve similar objectives?

  • BEPS: Improving data, economic analysis and measurement

    May 27, 2015

    It is stating the obvious to say that current international efforts to tackle base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) have attracted a great deal of global attention. Since the OECD and G20 countries, working together on an equal footing, adopted a 15-point action plan to address BEPS in September 2013, the focus on this issue has steadily grown. David Bradbury, head of the tax policy and statistics division at the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, and the man overseeing this aspect of the project, provides exclusive insight into an action point that has not always received as much attention as other items in the Action Plan.
