Base erosion and profit shifting

China deposits an instrument for the approval of the Multilateral BEPS Convention


25/05/2022 – China has deposited its instrument of approval for the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS Convention), which now covers over 1 820 bilateral tax treaties, thus underlining its strong commitment to prevent the abuse of tax treaties and base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) by multinational enterprises. China's instrument of approval also covers Hong Kong (China)'s bilateral tax treaties. The Convention will enter into force on 1 September 2022 for China.


On 1 June 2022, over 880 treaties concluded among the 76 jurisdictions which have ratified, accepted or approved the BEPS Convention will have already been modified by the BEPS Convention. Around 940 additional treaties will be modified once the BEPS Convention will have been ratified by all Signatories.
