The OECD has advised that 130 countries and jurisdictions have agreed to plans for a global minimum corporate tax rate. The principle of the agreement is that multinationals would be compelled to pay a minimum of 15 per cent tax in each country in which they operate, with the global minimum tax rate expected to raise around $US150 billion. The agreement also looks to curtail profit shifting, with over $US100 billion (Stg73 billion) expected to be raised by curbing this activity.
