Dec 03, 2018

The Secretary-General of the OECD, Angel Gurría presented a report at the G20 Leaders’ Summit in Buenos Aires last week. Mr Gurría’s report noted that the key issue for the international tax community in 2018 remains how to address the tax challenges arising from digitalisation.

The report notes that the OECD Task Force on digitalisation will meet in December and the Inclusive Framework on BEPS then meets in January to take these proposals further. The Inclusive Framework will hold a second meeting in 2019 just before the next G20 Leaders’ Summit where leaders are expected to reach agreement on the a long-term solution to digitalisation for international delivery in 2020.
