Pillar 2 safe harbour

30 December, 2022


– The first step to implement a Pillar 2 solution in your group

The OECD released the transitional Safe harbour rules in December and has its starting point in the CbC reporting to calculate if a jurisdiction qualifies. However, the rules are complex, and thus, you need to put a process in place to understand how these rules affect your group. Therefore, understanding the magnitude and complexity of data collection for GloBE calculation purposes is crucial.

There are a few things that are important to think about regarding the safe harbour calculation.

  • You need a system to control all entities, not only those included in the CbC reporting
  • You need to identify to what extent you can use your CbC figures.
  • You need to control the quality of your existing CbC data, Total revenue and Profit (Loss) before income tax.
  • You need to characterize each entity for Globe purposes, e.g. Constituent entities, joint ventures and minority shareholdings.
  • You need to ensure that you can collect financial data such as total revenue, Profit (loss) before income tax, income tax expense (adjusted for GloBE), payroll, tangible assets and net fair value loss.
  • You must do the safe harbour calculations on a jurisdictional level and separately for each joint venture company.
