On 20th December the OECD published details of their global minimum tax proposals. These will reshape the global tax landscape and could have a wide range of implications for large multinational enterprise groups.
In less than 12 months, significant changes are expected to be introduced to Hong Kong's tax system as a result of the OECD's BEPS 2.0 initiatives and the inclusion of Hong Kong SAR in the EU's tax 'grey-list'. This will result in significant tax increases for some groups. Others may need to consider whether their current business arrangements are still the most appropriate, while all will face a challenge of understanding the complex new rules and ensuring they have the necessary systems in place to meet their compliance obligations.
In this joint-chamber webinar, KPMG tax partner, Ivor Morris, will discuss how the OECD's BEPS 2.0 Pillar 2 rules may affect businesses in Hong Kong and the key areas for consideration. Key topics that will be discussed include:
- The potential impact for groups with tax losses and timing differences;
- The potential impact on accounting disclosures;
- Key considerations for certain industries such as shipping and real-estate;
- What actions affected businesses in Hong Kong can take to prepare themselves for the upcoming changes including managing data collection; and
- The potential responses from the Hong Kong SAR Government as a result of the latest BEPS 2.0 developments and the inclusion of Hong Kong SAR in the EU's "tax grey-list.
