Re: Are tax havens doomed?

Would have been an issue for CH as well if the min was set lower than 15%. Having said that the implementation of this will take years.
The article linked says October.
Would be very surprising, if they really mean in 4 months.

It sounds so wonderfully social, doesn't it. How nice of the biggies (who charge more than 15% tax) to think of all these poor tax havens and help them make more money.

<<The principle of the agreement is that multinationals would be forced to pay a minimum of 15% tax in each country they operate in.>> is a bit confusing. If that means it does no longer matter where the head-quarters are and income is only taxed where it's made, it could be a good thing. But of course only if the 15% is not only the minimum but also the maximum all over the world.
As I understand it, the biggies (who are clearly not able to handle money and all this won't change that fact) want to keep charging high taxes and force the few others to demand a minimum tax. Bullying much?

Maurer - who's bloody good at his job - apparently hasn't even commented on the latest of this yet.
