The OECD released its public consultation document on a ‘unified approach’ to the taxation of the digitalised economy. Mexico is the latest jurisdiction to announce unilateral measures, whilst Italy has revised its rules on a digital services tax. France and Mexico introduce various tax changes in their respective Budgets, including measures aimed at increasing compliance with the BEPS recommendations. Malta has introduced a patent box regime. The Hong Kong tax authority maintains its transfer pricing focus on the life sciences sector.
