Date announced for next BEPS webcast from OECD
June 8 is the date of the next webcast to update stakeholders on the progress of the OECD-led base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project.
During the session, senior members of the OECD's Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA) will provide:
a progress report on the BEPS deliverables
an update on discussion drafts and public consultations (consult the calendar)
a description of how developing countries are engaging in and providing input to the project; and
a schedule for release of finalised BEPS package.
It will be the seventh CTPA webcast on the progress of BEPS since January 2014.
The communique after the meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in Washington at the weekend referred to international tax and the BEPS Project, but in a much more low-key way than in similar statements after previous meetings. The ministers said they remain committed to the creation of a "globally fair and modern international tax system" and on track to finalise the BEPS Action Plan on time.
The rest of the tax part of the communique mentioned delivering on their commitment to implement exchange of information, supporting the engagement of developing countries in the international tax agenda and the G20's commitment to "implement actively" the G20 High Level Principles on Beneficial Ownership Transparency.
