Tax podcast: Taxation of the digital economy—OECD Pillar One and Pillar Two update
November 4, 2020
The G20/OECD Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (the Inclusive Framework) released detailed “blueprints” for both Pillar One and Pillar Two in relation to its ongoing work to address the tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy.
These blueprints could fundamentally change long-standing rules governing international taxation of large, multinational entities. What should tax executives know?
On this episode, Bob Stack, managing director in Deloitte’s Washington National Tax—International Tax group, discusses the latest updates on the Pillar One and Pillar Two blueprints, the impact of the US presidential election, and the potential paths forward.
As of today, in the current drafts, there’s a fair amount of muddy waters around what are the principles that are driving the work, and also to see if they can get something simpler and more administrable. And to see if we can improve the certainty that US businesses will get out of this project, because after all, that’s what got US businesses to the table to begin with.
