As part of the October 2022-23 Budget, the government announced a transparency measure for Australian public companies (listed and unlisted) to disclose information on the number of subsidiaries and their country of tax domicile. The measure will strengthen public scrutiny over disclosures made by public companies.
The government is seeking stakeholders’ views on the exposure draft legislation and accompanying explanatory material implementing this measure.
Previous consultation on the multinational enterprise tax integrity and transparency proposals was held in August and September 2022.
The government will consult separately on the other elements of its multinational tax integrity package, including the public country-by-country reporting measure.
Interested parties are invited to comment on this consultation up until 13 April 2023.
