PwC National Office partner Heather Horn brings to life our In the loop on the OECD minimum tax and its potential impact on US companies.
The current international tax landscape has been in place for decades. But now dramatic changes may be on the horizon. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), backed by countries around the world, has been pursuing a “Two-Pillar Solution” aimed at alleviating certain global tax challenges that it believes arose from the “digitalisation of the economy.”
This OECD two-pillar framework will significantly alter many international tax practices we follow today with a related impact on reported earnings. In preparation, all companies should begin to assess what the OECD’s proposed framework will mean to them.
In this episode, Heather Horn, partner in PwC’s National Office, brings you an audio version of our In the loop on the OECD framework.
In this podcast, you’ll hear:
  • 1:01 - The OECD’s agenda and a description of the two-pillar proposal
  • 6:45 - How a US company could be scoped into Pillar 2
  • 8:51 - Key requirements of the Pillar 2 Model Rules
  • 12:01 - How to account for “top-up taxes”
  • 13:04 - What’s next in the implementation of the proposed rules
  • 15:05 - A description of the key terms used in the framework
