130 Countries Agree To Global Taxation Deal – OECD

Some 130 countries and jurisdictions have signed up to a global taxation reform ensuring that multinationals pay their fair share wherever they operate, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says.

The OECD says in a statement that global companies, including US behemoths Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple would be taxed at a rate of at least 15 percent.

The formal agreement follows an endorsement by the G7 group — consisting of several of the world’s wealthy nations — last month at a meeting in Britain when US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said a global minimum tax “would end the race to the bottom in corporate taxation.”

Germany hails the deal as a “colossal step towards tax justice.”

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
