29/11/2017 - On 28 November 2017, an OECD delegation met Bakhyt Sultanov, the Kazakhstan Minister of Finance, in Astana to launch an initiative to assist Kazakhstan in the implementation of the measures to tackle Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). Kazakhstan is an active member of the Inclusive Framework on BEPS, which brings together 108 countries and jurisdictions on an equal footing to tackle international tax avoidance.
The visit launched an induction programme to assist Kazakhstan in the implementation of the BEPS package with a focus on country-by-country reporting and the other minimum standards.
As part of the visit, a technical meeting with senior representatives from the Ministry of Finance and Kazakhstan State Revenue Committee was held on 29 November to discuss the content and scope of a roadmap for BEPS implementation.
The OECD delegation was led by Ben Dickinson, Head of the Global Relations and Development Division at the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, and Valerio Barbantini, Senior Adviser and Co-ordinator for BEPS and Developing Countries.
