Treasury’s Multinational Tax Integrity and Tax Transparency Consultation paper

On 5 August 2022, Treasury released a consultation paper on Multinational Tax Integrity and Tax Transparency. The consultation paper addresses what the Federal Government perceives as tax avoidance practices of multinational enterprises (MNEs), along with improving transparency through better tax information reporting for MNEs.

The consultation paper includes three main proposals:

  • Changing Australia’s existing thin capitalisation rules
  • Limiting large MNE deductions for certain royalty payments
  • Enhancing MNEs disclosure of tax information.

In response to Treasury’s request for comments on the consultation paper, the BDO National Tax team has prepared a submission.
