17/03/2020 - Due to the developing coronavirus (Covid-19) emergency, the OECD has implemented a range of precautionary measures at its Paris headquarters. These measures are consistent with announcements by the Government of France, the OECD’s host country, on steps being taken to contain the epidemic, and include full teleworking for staff and suspension of all physical meetings on-site.
Multilateral efforts to address the tax challenges arising from digitalisation of the economy continue. The OECD Secretariat team is working full steam on the project and meetings with delegates are being held remotely. The Steering Group, the Task Force on the Digital Economy and other Working Parties will continue holding virtual meetings in the coming weeks, on schedule. The working methods will be adapted to allow all countries to fully participate. All participants continue working towards reaching a political decision on the key components of a multilateral consensus-based solution at the G20/OECD Inclusive Framework on BEPS plenary meeting scheduled for 1-2 July 2020 in Berlin, Germany.
