130 OECD countries and jurisdictions signed a declaration agreeing on a two-pillar solution to address the tax challenges arising from the digitalisation of the economy.
Pillar 1 will cover multinationals with a global turnover above 20 billion euros and profitability above 10%. The agreement excludes international shipping activities and potentially companies when they are in the initial phase of their international expansion. It also excludes regulated financial services.
Pillar 2 will apply to multinationals with a turnover of at least €750 million with a minimum rate of at least 15%.
