On December 16, 2022 the Council of the EU announced that the EU Pillar 2 Directive had been formally adopted. It is now clear that the EU Member States will have to implement the Directive by December 31, 2023.

A summary of the content of these documents can be found in the document below, which was prepared by our KPMG Pillar 2 specialists.

Comments by KPMG Meijburg & Co
Pillar 2 is now moving forward fast. It is clear that the Pillar 2 rules will soon become a reality within the EU as well as in other jurisdictions around the world. Even though not all details are clear yet and it is expected that the OECD will publish more relevant documents in the months ahead, now is the time to look into the impact of these new rules, to explore whether and to what extent the global minimum effective taxation rules could lead to top-up tax being payable and which reporting obligations may exist and the relevant deadlines. Our specialists would be happy to help you map out your situation. We will of course keep you up to date on any related developments.
