Base Erosion & Profit Shifting | BEPS 

In July 2013 the OECD released its widely anticipated Comprehensive Action Plan (“Plan”) on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”). They set out an ambitious timetable to work with governments in approximately 40 participating countries, taxing authorities and  business representatives to develop and implement these actions over the course of 2014 and 2015 and beyond. 

The “Plan” will have an impact on a range of businesses in Ireland.  KPMG Ireland can help you monitor developments on the outcomes of the “Plan’s” actions in Ireland and Internationally.  Our BEPS website will provide you with updates to the “Plan” as they are released and will provide you with a  guide to what lies behind this initiative, the likely impact on Ireland and what the key considerations are for you and your business. 


Inevitably the impact may vary depending on individual company circumstances. Please do feel free to get in touch with us to discuss how we can help you assess the implications for your particular situation. We look forward to hearing from you.

BEPS - On a page - Country-by-country reporting 

January 2014


One of the 15 specific actions of the OECD Action Plan on BEPS was to re-examine transfer pricing (‘TP’) documentation. The Action Plan outlines that the re-examination seeks to increase transparency and ‘include a requirement... to provide all relevant governments with... information on... global allocation of the income, economic activity and taxes paid among countries according to a common template’. Accordingly, the concept of Country-by-Country (‘CbC’) reporting was born.
