Country-by-Country Reporting XML Schema: User Guide for Tax Administrations and Taxpayers

This publication contains the User Guide for the OECD’s standardised electronic format for the exchange of Country-by-Country (CbC) Reports between jurisdictions – the CbC XML Schema.

The CbC XML Schema is part of the OECD’s work to ensure the swift and efficient implementation of the BEPS measures, endorsed by G20 Leaders as part of the final BEPS Package in November 2015.


2015 final reports

The OECD presented the final package of measures for a comprehensive, coherent and co-ordinated reform of the international tax rules to G20 Finance Ministers at their meeting on 8 October, in Lima, Peru.  The OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project provides governments with solutions for closing the gaps in existing international rules that allow corporate profits to « disappear » or be artificially shifted to low/no tax environments, where little or no economic activity takes place.

OECD and G20 countries have agreed three key elements that will enable implementation of the BEPS package:

 

   

2014 Deliverables

Addressing base erosion and profit shifting is a key priority of governments around the globe. In 2013, OECD and G20 countries, working together on an equal footing, adopted a 15-point Action Plan to address BEPS. This is the first set of reports and recommendations which address seven of the actions in the BEPS Action Plan.

 

   

Report to G20 Development Working Group on the impact of BEPS in Low Income Countries

At the G20’s request, the OECD is leading the development of a strategy to address base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS). The Development Working Group has asked the OECD to draw together the experiences of developing countries and international organisations in a report on the main sources of BEPS in developing countries and how these relate to the OECD/G20 BEPS Action Plan on this issue.

 

   

Action Plan on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting

Taxation is at the core of countries' sovereignty, but in recent years, multinational companies have avoided taxation in their home countries by pushing activities abroad to low or no tax jurisdictions. The G20 asked OECD to address this growing problem by creating this action plan to address base erosion and profit shifting. This plan identifies a series of domestic and international actions to address the problem and sets timelines for the implementation.

 

 

   

Addressing Base Erosion and Profit Shifting

This report presents the studies and data available regarding the existence and magnitude of BEPS and contains an overview of global developments that have an impact on corporate tax matters and identifies the key principles that underlie the taxation of cross-border activities, as well as the BEPS opportunities these principles may create.
