Indonesia and the BRICS: Implementing the BEPS Action Plan

2017. Vol. 12. No. 3. P. 114–136 [issue contents]

Tax base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) is a global problem. Finding solutions is a challenge for most countries. The global economic crisis led to a new environment and requirements for doing business. These requirements have been developed by two key international institutions: the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Group of 20 (G20). This approach has engaged the developed and developing countries that are members of these institutions, as well as a significant number of partner countries. As a result, the number of countries that have confirmed their commitment to the BEPS Action Plan exceeds 100.

This article assesses the level of implementation of the BEPS Plan in Indonesia and in the BRICS countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The author monitored their activities for 13 of the 15 actions (excluding Actions 11 and 15). He has also identified several best practices that can be used by Russia.

Monitoring considered implemented and planned actions, primarily amendments to and new norms in relevant national legislation, as well as the expected implementation time for all BEPS actions. In addition, the author assessed institutional environments created to implement the provisions of the Action Plan, consultation processes and mechanisms for informing stakeholders.

Analysis shows that approaches to implementing the BEPS Action Plan differ among the six countries. Although several lag behind in terms of their implementation schedule, each country has demonstrated some efforts that can be considered as best practices. Russia has succeeded the most in implementing the Action Plan.
