Event description
The OECD/G20 Two-Pillar Solution: Current situation and next steps from German and Belgian perspectives

About this event

Belgian - German Colloquium image

The energy transition, the fight against climate change, the necessary investments in infrastructure, in education and training, the demography and the digitalisation of public administration are some of the main challenges, states all over the world and in particular in Europe are facing. To cope with those challenges takes serious efforts, and not in the least public investments. Many countries are still struggling with the fallout of recent crises however, reducing in particular their budgetary flexibility. It is therefore indispensable that everybody contributes his fair share, including large multinational companies, which in the past have not always shouldered sufficiently their part of the effort.

Against that background, the OECD two-pillar solution, accepted by 137 countries and jurisdictions under the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) and endorsed by the G20 Finance Ministers and government leaders in October 2021, comes at the right time. That solution will make sure that large multinational enterprises (MNEs) pay a minimum level of tax on the income arising in each jurisdiction in which they operate.

The German Federal Ministry of Finance, the Belgian Federal Public Service Finance and the German Embassy in Brussels are pleased to invite you to a Belgo-German Colloquium on the OECD/G20 two-pillar solution on Monday, May 23th 2022, from 10.00 a.m. until 4 p.m. (CEST).

German and Belgian experts will discuss the status quo, where are we in the process, which challenges and hurdles does the project still have to overcome and what are the next steps to be taken. The Ministers of Finance of Belgium and Germany, Mr. Vincent Van Peteghem and Mr. Christian Lindner, will conclude the event to highlight the political importance of the new rules. You will find the preliminary program for the event in attachment.

Where: Residence Palace, Rue de la Loi / Wetstraat 155, 1040 Brussels
