OECD BEPS report and action plan

The OECD issued a February 2013 report Addressing Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). The BEPS report responds to growing concerns among OECD and non-OECD countries alike about the risks to tax revenues, tax sovereignty and tax fairness that BEPS behaviors pose, in particular when these results lead to unanticipated double non-taxation.


On July 19, 2013, the OECD released a coordinated action plan for the BEPS project for the G20 governments.
