The G20/OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project aimed at revising existing tax rules to align the taxation of profit with the location of economic activities and value creation (the “value creation principle”). It has received much commentary in literature and general debates and has been regarded as “the most significant re-write of the international tax rules in a century”, an opportunity to “rebuild a healthy scheme for allocating taxation rights”, having the potential to significantly alter the contours of the international tax regime, transforming the international tax regime, signaling a “new struggle over international taxation”, or representing the “emergence of a new international tax regime”. The OECD claimed that the revised rules represent “the first substantial – and overdue - renovation of the international tax standards in almost a century”.
