Global survey reveals BEPS middle market impact


RSM and Euromoney Institutional Investor recently conducted a global survey regarding the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project, which will undoubtedly result in the most significant changes in international taxation in decades.

The survey gathered feedback from multinational organizations (with a heavy focus on the middle market) around the perceived risks and sentiments regarding BEPS. Based 500-plus detailed responses from leaders at multinational enterprises on how they expect BEPS to affect their organizations, the survey found that the BEPS Project will have direct and significant consequences for middle-market companies.

Over half of the respondents indicated that BEPS will result in increased compliance costs and global effective tax rates. Over 70 percent of respondents indicated that BEPS is creating considerable strategic uncertainty, and over 40 percent of respondents anticipate a significant restructuring or complete overhaul of their group structure.
