The OECD estimates that the new minimum corporate tax rate of 15 per cent could generate up to $US150bn ($201bn) in additional global tax revenue. The global tax regime has been backed by 130 countries and jurisdictions, including Australia; they have agreed to exclude ‘extractive industries’ such as mining and energy from the regime, which will make Australian companies in these sectors more attractive to international investors. Jones Day tax partner Niv Tadmore says large global companies will no longer be able to shelter their profits in other jurisdictions to avoid paying tax. This will include digital giants such as Google and Facebook, which have been widely criticised over the amount of tax they pay.
