Synopsis

In what is arguably the most significant change to the taxation of multinational corporations in our history, a global minimum tax rate of 15% has been agreed by 132 countries, including all of the G20. On top of this, fundamental changes to the way in which the world’s 100 largest companies will be taxed have also been announced. Implementation is targeted for 2023 meaning that the impact assessment and planning must start now.  

Join us on Thursday 5th August as we talk you through the Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 proposals, including an overview of how they apply and who they apply to. We will also discuss the specific impact for Singapore and its tax incentive regime, as well as providing you with a broader APAC perspective.
