The G7 Global Tax Deal – what does this mean for the Crown Dependencies?

Professional Development

Overview

The G7 tax deal has been described as the ‘starting point’ on the road to global reform. The OECD has said that this tax reform could raise billions in revenues for Governments.

G7 ministers have backed a global minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15 per cent, and agreed that countries should have the right to tax a proportion of the largest and most profitable multinationals’ profit in the locations where it is generated.

What will this mean for leading international finance centres? The tax reform raises several other key questions, including:

  • Could the Crown Dependencies be forced to scrap their low business-tax models?
  • Are the Crown Dependencies at significant risk of being blacklisted by the EU?
  • Can our tax systems align with the two pillars set out by the OECD which aim to expand the taxation rights of countries where business activity actually takes place and prevent profits moving to lower-tax jurisdictions.

This highly topical webinar aims to explore what the G7 Global Tax Deal could mean for the Crown Dependencies in the short and long term.

This course will be delivered through Online Classroom Live.
