March 17, 2014 | In this article, the authors consider the potential impact of the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) action item proposals on U.S. multinational enterprises (MNEs) with deferral structures, such as those commonly based in Ireland or the Netherlands.
Using a current Irish deferral structure as a case study, this article describes how this structure may be affected by the potential changes under the BEPS action plan. Also outlined are steps that MNEs may wish to consider to counter the impact of the BEPS proposals should they become law.
