Under the OECD Inclusive Framework, 140 countries agreed to enact a two-pillar solution to address the challenges arising from the digitalisation of the economy.
Pillar Two would ensure that large multinational enterprises (MNEs) - those with consolidated annual revenues of EUR 750 million or more - pay tax at an effective rate of at least 15% on profits earned in countries in which they operate. This will be primarily administered through a top-up tax regime.
The Singapore government has announced that the country would implement the Global Anti-Base Erosion (GloBE) rules including a domestic top-up tax (DTT) for in-scope MNEs from the financial year beginning on or after 1 January 2025. However, the legislation was not included in the draft Income Tax (Amendment) Bill 2023 published for public consultation on 6 June 2023.
It is time for MNEs to start preparing for the new regime. Taking into consideration the complexities involved, from data gathering to impact forecasting and more, this undertaking will require significant time and resource investment. To accelerate your transformation, here are key building blocks that are foundational to building up your Pillar Two readiness by 2025.
Amendments to IAS 12 provide a temporary exception from the requirement to recognise and disclose deferred taxes arising from the GloBE rules. Find out how and when this will affect your deferred tax reporting obligations. Learn more ➔

The OECD has recommended that the Pillar Two rules become effective in 2024, with the exception of the Undertaxed Profits Rule (UTPR) which is recommended to become effective in 2025. The EU Member States formally adopted the Minimum Tax Directive on December 15, 2022 and Member States shall transpose the Directive into their domestic law by December 31, 2023. Many other countries are working on their domestic rules to implement Pillar Two. Nevertheless, many multinationals already are subject to Pillar Two since the transition rules capture certain transactions occurring on or after November 30, 2021.
