US: IRS Launches CbC reporting pages on IRS.gov

Posted on Updated on

The Internal Revenue Service on 30 June 2017 announced the launch of Country-by-Country Reporting pages on irs.gov. These pages provide background information on Country-by-Country Reporting, frequently asked questions and other helpful resources, including a list of jurisdictions that have concluded Competent Authority Arrangements with the United States.

Country-by-Country (CbC) Reporting is part of Action 13 of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting project, which is intended to enhance transparency for tax administrations by providing them with information to conduct high-level transfer pricing risk assessments.

As part of the United States’ CbC Reporting, U.S. parent entities of multinational enterprise (MNE) groups with $850 million or more of revenue in the relevant preceding annual reporting period will file Form 8975 and Schedule A (Form 8975) (i.e. the “CbC Report”) with their annual income tax return.

The U.S. Competent Authority intends to enter into bilateral Competent Authority Arrangements (CAAs) for the automatic exchange of CbC Reporting information with Competent Authorities in Inclusive Framework jurisdictions with which the U.S. has an income tax treaty or tax information exchange agreement that allows for the automatic exchange of information provided the United States determines that the jurisdiction has in place appropriate safeguards with respect to confidentiality and use of the information exchanged.  A U.S. MNE’s CbC report will be exchanged pursuant to these CAAs if the U.S. MNE group has a constituent entity in the foreign jurisdiction.

The CbC Reporting website provides an up-to-date Country-by-Country Reporting Jurisdiction Status Table listing the CAAs that have been signed for CbC Reporting.  Where jurisdictions agree that the text of a CAA can be made public, links to the text are included in the Table.

In addition, the CbC Reporting pages also provide:

  • A list of CbC Reporting frequently asked questions (FAQs)  and a link that allows for the submission of comments and questions to the IRS CbC Reporting Mailbox (mailto:lbi.cbc@irs.gov). The IRS will review comments and questions submitted and make updates to the CbC Reporting FAQs as appropriate.
  • A link to sign up for the CbC Reporting Newsletter, which will be sent out periodically with CbC Reporting-related updates and information.
  • Instructions to Report Unauthorized Use for suspected unauthorized disclosure or misuse of information exchanged with a treaty/TIEA partner.

IMF report comments on Nicaragua’s fiscal position

Posted on Updated on

On 22 June 2017 the Executive Board of the IMF concluded consultations with Nicaragua under Article IV of the IMF’s articles of agreement and a report has been issued.

The report notes that Nicaragua’s economic performance in 2016 was robust with real GDP growth of 4.7%. Growth is projected to be 4.5% in 2017. The deficit of the consolidated public sector widened from 2.2% in 2015 to 2.4% in 2016, but is projected to slightly decrease to around 2.3% of GDP in 2017.

Tax revenues increased slightly in 2016 as a result of improvements in tax administration and the impact of full implementation of the 2012 tax reform. The IMF considers that fiscal buffers are required to confront risks. Fiscal consolidation may be achieved primarily by a rationalization of subsidies and of tax expenditures, especially a rationalization of VAT exemptions.

Reform of the social security system is considered to be a priority as increased government transfers to finance pensions and health benefits will otherwise be required from 2019. A combination of measures should be taken to improve sustainability of the social security system. As far as possible the measures should be introduced gradually.

Vulnerability to external shocks could be reduced by further improvements in competitiveness. Action is required to maintain investment in infrastructure, increase human capital development and address labor skills bottlenecks.

 

Brazil publishes private ruling on royalty and technical service payments

Posted on Updated on

Brazil has published Private Ruling 316 of 20 June 2017 on royalty and technical service payments and payments for services under cost sharing agreements. The ruling explicates the accountabilities for social security contributions (PIS/COFINS) on technical service and technical support payments to non-residents in connection with royalty payments. According to the ruling, royalty payments on their own are not subject to PIS/COFINS, but technical service payments are.
