IASB Exposure Draft on International Tax Reform: Pillar Two Model Rules – Join the UKEB roundtable on 13 February 2023

Date: 27 January 2023

This year, countries around the world – including the UK – are set to bring in legislation to introduce the OECD Pillar Two Model Rules, “topping up” the corporation tax rate to 15% for multinational companies with over €750m turnover.

In response to concerns about the complexity of deferred tax accounting in relation to Pillar Two, the IASB has proposed a temporary exception from deferred tax accounting for Pillar Two top up tax and a new set of disclosures. Given the urgent need for clarity, the IASB’s ED has an accelerated timetable with comments due by 10 March 2023. 

The UKEB will be considering a draft comment letter to the IASB at its 23 February Board meeting. To ensure that it reflects UK stakeholder views, the UKEB is holding a roundtable on 13 February at 12:00hrs for preparers and investors to share their views on the IASB’s proposals, including the exception and the proposed additional disclosures.
