Once again, the taxation of the digital economy is the focus of this update as the US reveals its intentions to fiercely defend large US corporations that are likely to pay the bulk of the new European taxes. The US has also released new GILTI regulations which give taxpayers a high tax exception and a change to the treatment of partnerships. The UAE is attempting to align itself with international taxing standards with the introduction of Country by Country Reporting (CBCR) rules and substance requirements and we also have a corporate tax rate reduction to 25 percent for small and medium sized companies in India. There have also been further EU state aid developments in the last month including a notice of a targeted investigation into Nike in the Netherlands.

In the latest of his regular articles for Tax Journal*, Tim Sarson rounds up recent international developments. This month’s article looks at the:

  • Digital services taxation in France and the UK;
  • US GILTI regulations;
  • CBCR requirements in the UAE;
  • The India Budget announcement; and
  • EU state aid developments.
