OECD BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting)
We are committed to actively engaging in the development of international and Irish tax policy. We are the only Irish law firm that consistently participates in tax policy consultations, both internationally and in Ireland. Each year, we prepare numerous detailed submissions and attend consultation meetings.
Recently, we have participated in all aspects of the OECD BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) consultation process, as we believe it is essential that government and OECD tax proposals are carefully drafted and tested before implementation and necessary comments and observations are provided.
Our partners are members of the tax committees of various industry bodies, including the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland, the Irish Funds Industry Association and the Irish Debt Securities Association
OECD BEPS submissions
The OECD BEPS process is the most important development in international taxation in decades. Proposals have been made which, if and when implemented, will have far-reaching effects on cross-border trade and development. We have reviewed and provided detailed technical comments on nearly all streams of the BEPS process. We have also attended most of the public consultation meetings held in Paris by the OECD. Our written submissions regarding BEPS are available here:
