Strengthening Tax Systems
The G20/OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan has made significant progress to modernise International Tax Rules and G20 countries are committed to finalising this work in 2015. To prevent cross-border tax evasion, the global Common Reporting Standard (CRS) for the Automatic Exchange of Tax Information (AEOI) is being endorsed on a reciprocal basis. G20 countries will begin to exchange information automatically with each other and with other countries by 2017 or end-2018, subject to completing necessary legislative procedures. The G20 welcomes deeper engagement of developing countries in the BEPS project to address their concerns.
