The OECD is seeking public comments on the review of the base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) Action 13 minimum standard.
Action 13 of the BEPS Project established a three-tiered standardized approach to transfer pricing documentation, including a country-by-country Report (CbC report). CbC reporting is one of the four BEPS minimum standards, which all members of the BEPS Inclusive Framework have committed to implementing.
The public consultation document – issued on February 6 – comprises three chapters: Chapter 1 contains general topics concerning the implementation and operation of BEPS Action 13; Chapter 2 contains topics concerning the scope of CbC reporting; and Chapter 3 contains topics concerning the content of a CbC report.
Specific questions upon which comments are sought are set out in each chapter.
Comments must be received by March 6, 2020.
