Online veröffentlicht: 14 Oct 2021

This is an introduction to the research papers that make out this Nordic Tax Journal special issue on inequality within the international tax regime. The special issue is an outcome of the discussions that took place at the (online) conference hosted by Copenhagen Business School in September 2020.

Jurisdiction Not to Tax, Tax Sparing Clauses, and the OECD Minimum Taxation (GloBE) Proposal

Online veröffentlicht: 14 Oct 2021
Seitenbereich: 6 - 19

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The OECD Programme of Work on the tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy comprises a so-called GloBE (Global Base Erosion) or Pillar Two proposal, consisting of a series of measures aimed at establishing a floor to tax competition by achieving minimum taxation of the income obtained by in-scope multinational enterprises. If such a measure is implemented, developing countries would be severely deprived of the possibility to grant tax incentives to attract FDI and potentially foster economic growth. This contribution emphasizes the importance of the thorough review of their tax policy preferences that developing countries should undertake amidst the rapid adoption of GloBE, which the OECD is pushing to achieve. To illustrate this concern, an examination of implementation issues shows that a deficient enactment of the income inclusion rule proposed in GloBE could paradoxically trigger the applicability of tax sparing clauses aimed at protecting the effectiveness of tax incentives, even when both sets of rules pursue opposing goals.

Ethical and Legal Responsibility of Multinational Corporate Groups for a Fair Share of Taxes

Online veröffentlicht: 18 Sep 2021
Seitenbereich: 32 - 46

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

This paper deals with the question whether there are reasons to deem multinational corporate groups ethically or legally responsible for paying their fair share of taxes. Ethical concepts argue that companies should generally be held responsible, but these findings contradict the mainstream market theory that understands companies as legal fictions and therefore not ethically but merely legally responsible. In contrast, we base our argumentation on the political-cultural market theory. We find that this theory provides reasons to ascribe an ethical responsibility for paying their fair share of taxes to multinational corporate groups. We argue, moreover, that this ethical responsibility also speaks for a legal responsibility. The prevailing tax law, particularly the arm's length principle, does generally not see groups as tax subjects. This currently missing legal responsibility gives reasons to rethink tax law. Therefore, we analyze whether the OECD Pillar One proposal may be an alternative to existing law.
