OECD: Asia-Pacific Technical Meeting on BEPS

While we wait for the official “tax consequences” of BEPS in Canada and the United States, the OECD is keeping busy, this time in Asia:

“On 11-12 November 2015, the first Asia-Pacific Technical Meeting on BEPS discussed the outcomes of the BEPS Project, and the challenges countries face in the region in implementing BEPS, and explored how countries in the region can engage in the implementation, on-going development and monitoring of the measures adopted, on an equal footing.

This meeting was hosted in Yogyakarta by the Directorate General of Taxes, Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia in co-operation with the OECD Korea Policy Centre (Tax Programme). This event focused on the exchange of experience among technical tax policy and administration experts in the region and built on a previous regional meeting on BEPS which took place on 12-13 February 2015 in Seoul, Korea.

75 participants attended the meeting representing 17 economies in addition to officials from the OECD, AIPEG, ATAIC, JICA, the OECD Korea Policy Centre, and SGATAR.  These technical experts provided feedback on the delivery of the BEPS Package, shared areas of priority for their countries, plans for engagement and activity, and described the challenges ahead.  They also provided their perspectives on engaging in the Implementation phase of the project including the development of an inclusive framework to include interested countries on an equal footing in the implementation, further development and monitoring of the measures adopted in the context of the BEPS Project.”
