1 min read


– Multinational enterprises must begin calculating, reporting, and paying the 15% global minimum tax under the new Pillar Two system.
– Collaboration between multinational enterprises, governments, and tax administrations is crucial for the successful implementation of the new tax rules.

Multinational enterprises around the world are facing the challenge of implementing the new global minimum tax rules under the Pillar Two system. These requirements involve intensive analysis, system changes, and collaboration. Multinationals must adapt their processes to comply with the new reporting system, while government tax administrations face the challenge of implementing the rules without the same familiarity with accounting practices.

The OECD has published guidance, but further clarification is needed due to the complexity of the rules. Inclusive Framework members are in the process of adopting the rules, and implementation is ongoing in many countries. Upskilling will be required for both multinationals and tax administrations to interpret guidance, develop systems, analyze data, and communicate about unintended results.

Collaboration between business and policy makers is essential in shaping and implementing policy. Multinationals have advocated for simplification by using existing accounting systems to track and report complex accounting information. Clear communication between multinationals, the OECD, and implementing authorities is crucial to developing workable rules.

The success of the global minimum tax depends on the uniform and global implementation of the rules. Governments and tax administrations play a key role in ensuring the success of Pillar Two. Domestic implementation needs to align with the model rules, and clear administration of the rules is important. Eliminating redundant rules and simplifying the reporting processes will reduce the burden on multinationals and tax administrations.

Overall, successful implementation of Pillar Two requires collaborative engagement between multinationals, policy makers, and tax administrations.
