Country-by-country reporting (CbCR) and notification services

The OECD’s BEPS (base erosion and profit shifting) initiative makes complex compliance demands that can vary widely from one jurisdiction to another.

TMF Group’s global network of in-country experts lets you satisfy the matrix of country-by-country compliance obligations cleanly and consistently across any number of jurisdictions.

What is country-by-country reporting?

Country-by-country reporting requires international companies and groups above a certain revenue threshold to submit three levels of reporting about the intra-company trading and accounting in their cross-border business activities.

The compliance demands made by these new and complex regulations can vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another, making it difficult for a multinational business to comply effectively and consistently.

Country-by-country reports provide local tax authorities with details of a company’s business activities, revenues, pre-tax profits, retained earnings, tax paid, assets, employment and so on in that jurisdiction.

Master file reports (lodged with the company’s home tax authority but available to all) provide a high-level overview of the group’s global business operations and its policies governing how intra-company transactions are accounted for.

Local file reports for each jurisdiction related-party transactions at the country level and describe the underlying transfer pricing decisions.
