    On 10 June 2024, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland tabled a notice of ways and means motion (NWMM) to implement the increase in the capital gains inclusion rate, which was announced in the 2024 federal budget (Budget 2024) but was not part of Bill C-69, Budget Implementation Act, 2024, No. 1. The proposed rules on the capital gains inclusion rate are generally effective on or after 25 June 2024. Transition rules would apply for tax years starting before 25 June 2024 and ending after 25 June 2024.
  • OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework releases documents on Pillar One Amount B and Pillar Two
    On 17 June 2024, the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) released a series of documents on the Pillar One Amount B approach for transfer pricing for certain baseline marketing and distribution transactions and the Pillar Two global minimum tax rules. The two Amount B documents list the jurisdictions that are (1) qualified for specified adjustments to the calculations under the Amount B approach; and (2) covered by the political commitment of Inclusive Framework member jurisdictions to respect the outcome of their jurisdictions’ application of Amount B. The two Pillar Two documents consist of an additional agreed Administrative Guidance document and a brief Q&A document with information on the peer review process for determining the qualified status of the Global Anti-Base Erosion rules of implementing jurisdictions.
