An Update on the OECD’s CbC Reporting Discussion Paper

Thursday, October 23, 2014

3:30 to 6:00 p.m.


Starkey’s WFA Building

6425 Flying Cloud Drive

Eden Prairie, MN


As part of the OECD’s Base Erosion Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) initiative, the OECD released a discussion paper on country by country (“CbC”) reporting earlier this year. We will discuss the current status of the initiative, reactions from the public, how we anticipate countries will react and the practical considerations driving the responses of multinational companies.  Kay Freund, Medtronic’s Senior Global Transfer Pricing Leader, Karen Hines, Starkey’s Director of Tax and Guy Sanschagrin of WTP Advisors will lead the discussion. As in past TPVF events, we welcome active group participation.


At this session, participants will:

  • Obtain an update on the OECD’s CbC discussion paper and its role in BEPS
  • Learn how CbC reporting may impact the transfer pricing landscape
  • Discuss how some key countries might incorporate CbC into their transfer pricing policies
  • Discuss how multinationals are responding
