Today, as part of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) agreed to a new framework that would allow all interested   countries and jurisdictions to participate as BEPS Associates in an extension of the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Affairs (CFA).  According to a press release, as BEPS Associates, such countries and jurisdictions would be able to “work on an equal footing with the OECD and G20 members” in implementing the final recommendations under the OECD/G20 BEPS project.  The proposal for broadening participation in the BEPS project will be presented to G20 Finance Ministers at their next meeting on February 26 and 27 in Shanghai, China.
