G7 Nations Agree to Corporate Tax of at Least 15%, Hong Kong, Singapore & Switzerland Prepare for Change

9th June 2021 | Hong Kong

The G7 Nations United States, Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Canada have agreed to a new minimum global corporate tax rate of at least 15% on overseas earnings, instead of companies paying taxes in where they are headquartered.  Countries that have lower tax rates such as Ireland (12.5%), Hong Kong (16.5%), Singapore (17%), Switzerland (21.1%) can attract more foreign & international companies to setup headquarters compared to countries with higher tax rates such as United States (25.8%), Canada (26.5%), Japan (29.7%), Germany (29.9%) and France (32%), and with some countries providing further concessionary tax rates (reduced tax rates) to attract targeted sectors such as in the technology sector (Eg. Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook).  The lower tax rates or concessionary tax rates  have allowed companies and big companies to save billions in taxes by shifting jurisdiction (headquarters).
