Global minimum tax implementation likely to be delayed until 2024
The expected push back is amidst recent developments in Europe.   The implementation of the global minimum tax of 15% by 2023 might be delayed until 2024, according to an expert from KPMG.   KPMG Partner Mark Addy said the pushback will likely be due to the recent developments in Europe – hitting record inflation, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, and more.   Addy, however, said the implementation will not be delayed beyond 2024 given the very strong momentum for the global minimum tax.
