The OECD announced that Malaysia has joined the “Inclusive Framework on BEPS." Malaysia commits to the BEPS Project to participate as a BEPS Associate of the OECD's Committee on Fiscal Affairs.
Base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) refers to tax avoidance strategies that exploit gaps and mismatches in tax rules to artificially shift profits to low or no-tax locations. Under the inclusive framework, over 100 countries and jurisdictions are collaborating to implement the BEPS measures and tackle BEPS.
Monitoring implementation and the impact of the different BEPS measures is a key element of the work ahead. The OECD has established an inclusive framework on BEPS, which allows interested countries and jurisdictions to work with OECD and G20 members on developing standards on BEPS related issues and reviewing and monitoring the implementation of the whole BEPS package.
Monitoring the implementation of the BEPS measures includes targeted monitoring of the minimum standards on treaty shopping and on dispute resolution, the application of the criteria on harmful tax practices, as well as the implementation of the country-by-country reporting requirements. Monitoring will also focus on what countries have done to implement the BEPS recommendations and the measurement of the impact of BEPS and BEPS countermeasures.
