OECD GloBE update - Overview of the key parameters of the model rules


On 20 December 2021, the G20/OECD Inclusive Framework on BEPS ("inclusive framework") published Tax Challenges Arising from the Digitalisation of the Economy Global Anti-Base Erosion Model Rules (Pillar Two) ("model rules"). This follows on from the Statement on a Two-Pillar Solution to Address the Tax Challenges Arising from the Digitalisation of the Economy, agreed by more than 135 of its members on 8 October 2021.

Since 2017, the 141 member countries of the inclusive framework have developed a "two-pillar" approach to address the tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy: addressing nexus and profit allocation challenges ("Pillar One") and global minimum tax rules ("Pillar Two").

The long-awaited model rules provide more clarity on the future of a global minimum tax rate. Although the model rules have now been published and confirm the key parameters, further clarification on certain aspects is still required. Additional details shall be provided in a commentary that is expected to be published by the OECD by the end of January 2022.
