NFTC Outlines Business Priorities During OECD Tax Consultation

PARIS, FRANCE – National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) Vice President for International Tax Policy Anne Gordon yesterday delivered remarks during the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Consultation on Amount A of Pillar One.

"The NFTC has always stressed the importance of non-discriminatory tax practices that allow U.S. companies to fairly compete – and thrive – in international markets," said Anne Gordon. "We are proud to continue working with the OECD and other international stakeholders to ensure that the new OECD tax framework creates a level-playing field for all of our companies."

During her testimony, she highlighted the importance of continued work on:
  • Further clarification on the definition of ‘relevant similar measures;'
  • A principled agreement on withholding taxes;
  • Clarity on measures such as diverted profit taxes;
  • Removal of all DSTs and repercussions for those countries who impose new DSTs or unilateral measures; and
  • Rules regarding the imposition of sub-national taxes that may circumvent Pillar One.
