Country-by-Country Reporting


The Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan recognised that enhancing transparency for tax administrations by providing them with adequate information to assess high-level transfer pricing and other BEPS-related risks is a crucial aspect for tackling the BEPS issues. Action Plan 13 provides a template for multinational company to report annually and for each tax jurisdiction in which they do business the information set out therein. This report is called the Country-by-Country Reporting (CbCR).

CbCR has been introduced in the Final Report on BEPS Action 13 published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in October 2015, as part of the three-tiered approach to transfer pricing documentation. The three-tiered standardised approach to transfer pricing documentations are represented by Master File, Local File and CbCR. The purpose is to enhance the transparency for tax administration, taking into consideration the compliance costs for businesses.


Reporting of CbCR information will be in accordance to the OECD's CbCR Extensible Marrkup Language (XML) Schema

Submission of the CbCR Reporting is through the IRBM's IT platform. Information on this IT platform will constantly be updated.
