OECD wants country-by-country tax reporting

after 10.15pm

Impacts of such a move:-
It would shake up how multinationationals present their accounts.
It aims to cut back tax avoidance and transfer pricing in developing countries.

Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will present guidelines that could force MNCs to reveal profits and tax paid/payable in every country they operate in.

The MNCs are worried that the transparency will provide civil groups, citizens and governments of such countries in which the MNCs have operated / are operating in, may have been short changed in tax revenue.

As they are just guidelines for the moment, OECD is pushing IASB to formalise it.
