The Group of 7 leaders have agreed on a global minimum tax rate of at least 15%, a historic step. That tax, along with a revised foreign tax, could bring in $150 billion, according to Bloomberg. The global minimum corporate tax rate is a measure that's gained increased prominence amidst tax talks. "Why would we want to commit to doubling our global minimum tax? But, according to the figure cited by Saint-Amans, leaving behind the global minimum proposal could also leave billions of dollars in potential revenue behind.

Four tax specialists concurred with Reuters’ methodology but noted that there is still uncertainty about how the measures would be applied, including which tax breaks are included in the 15% minimum overseas tax. Applying the same methodology to J&J, and its 2020 global profits of $16.5 billion, the healthcare company would see its global tax bill rise by about $270 million as a result of the first measure. Also at issue is which country the profit is moved from and to - and therefore what the increase in tax rate is. Excluding the impact of the first proposed measure, increasing the tax rate on overseas income to 15% would mean $45 million of additional tax. Applying a 15% tax rate to that overseas income figure would result in $990 million in additional taxes, according to Reuters’ calculations.

And after years of negotiations, a deal could be in sightGroup of Seven finance ministers gathering in London agreed Saturday to back a global minimum tax of at least 15% on multinational companies. "If the G7 agrees and then the G20, the likelihood of [a broader] agreement is probably pretty good," Elke Asen, a policy analyst at the Tax Foundation's Center for Global Tax Policy, told CNN. But opposition remains from countries including Ireland, which has successfully recruited global companies including big US tech firms by offering a corporate tax rate of just 12.5%.

Forget Companies—the Global Taxman Wants the Middle Class

To hear some politicians and commentators tell it, this will be a banner weekend for global tax policy. The danger to personal tax bills may not be immediately apparent because the current discussion concerns corporate taxation. Under century-old global standards, those companies are taxed on their profits by the governments where the firms operate global or regional headquarters—places such as America or Ireland. Many OECD members, especially in Europe, would like to tax those companies instead on revenues in the countries where they earn it. Don’t assume any of this is really about corporate taxation.

London (CNN Business) Price are rising quickly across huge swaths of the developed world, with inflation in countries that belong to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development surging in April to the highest rate since 2008. Energy price hikes boosted average annual inflation across OECD countries to 3.3% in April, compared with 2.4% in March, the Paris-based organization said Wednesday. That's the fastest rate since October 2008, when the global financial crisis delivered a massive shock to the world economy. The sudden arrival of inflation as economies reboot following the coronavirus pandemic is a major challenge for policymakers around the world. Rising prices are bad news for anyone on a fixed income, and central bankers may be tempted to combat inflation by hiking interest rates or paring back stimulus programs.

While the U.S. Worries About Inflation, Growth Elsewhere Faces Lasting Damage

Globally, the economic outlook has improved, thanks to the ramp-up in vaccinations. Markets fear at least a small chance that the economy could overheat, given that Washington’s fiscal transfers have left the average American household with more disposable income than before. Measures of inflation have shot up in the U.S. and are on the rise in the eurozone, too, hitting a three-year high of 2% in May, data showed Tuesday. Surveys of manufacturing purchasing managers, which recorded their highest reading ever, pointed to supply-chain shortages. This concern about too much economic growth, however, is a first-world problem—and, even there, a lopsided one.

It would also work in tandem with President Biden's proposed corporate tax rate increase. Finance ministers for the Group of 7 are set to back a new global minimum tax, according to a Reuters report. A global minimum corporate tax would, in practice, curb multinational companies from fleeing to countries with lower tax rates. The global minimum tax has also emerged as a key policy for the Biden administration's Treasury Department. A global minimum tax may have to be passed in the US through legislation – something at least one Republican senator has voiced opposition to.

O.E.C.D. Raises Global Growth Forecast Sharply, Citing Vaccines

The global economy is expected to recover from the coronavirus pandemic faster than expected this year, as vaccinations in advanced economies and an enormous fiscal stimulus package in the United States unleash pent-up business activity and job creation, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said on Monday. The organization sharply raised its forecast for global growth to 5.8 percent in 2021, up from a 4.2 percent projection in December. It said the pace of expansion would cool to 4.5 percent in 2022 as government support programs unwind. A government stimulus-led upturn in the United States, where President Biden is betting on a $2 trillion infrastructure package to end the effects of the pandemic faster, has helped improve the global outlook, the group said. China continues to experience the world’s strongest rebound, also lifting the global outlook.

Ben Stansall/Pool via REUTERSU.S. Treasury Deputy Secretary Wally Adeyemo said he expects strong backing from G7 peers for Washington's proposed 15%-plus global minimum corporate tax, which should help solidify support in the U.S. Congress for domestic corporate tax legislation. The rate is well below the Biden administration's proposed 21% minimum rate for U.S. companies' overseas income and its 28% proposed domestic corporate tax rate. The reaction from G7 chair Britain, which currently has a 19% corporate tax rate, has been more guarded. In 2017, the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress cut the U.S. corporate tax rate to 21% and instituted a minimum tax rate on overseas income from intangible sources of 10.5%. Adeyemo said a higher U.S. minimum tax would provide incentives for other countries to move toward the U.S. rate.

U.S. President Joe Biden speaks about jobs and the economy at the White House in Washington, April 7, 2021. The White House on Friday stressed that its effort to institute a global minimum corporate tax is a top priority for President Joe Biden and represents more than merely a talking point for the globe's economists. The U.S. Treasury Department has taken the lead in trying to persuade contemporary nations to adopt a global minimum tax. A global minimum tax would also allow governments to better generate revenues for domestic projects that the Biden administration deems important to national security, Singh said. "Our national security strategy is predicated on domestic renewal.

The New York Times reports that the US is proposing at least a 15% global minimum tax rate. The global minimum push comes as President Biden moves to increase corporate taxes at home. The Treasury Department has proposed at least a 15% global minimum tax rate for corporations in recent negotiations, The New York Times reports. The global minimum tax is meant to prevent multinational corporations from moving their operations to a country with a more favorable tax rate. However, a global minimum tax rate would likely still have a rocky road ahead in the US.

Corporations around the world should pay at least a 15% tax on their earnings, the Treasury Department said Thursday as part of its push for a global minimum for businesses. Under a proposal from President Joe Biden, the tax rate would be lifted to 28%, part of a plan to raise levies on both companies and the highest earners. Establishing the global minimum would help reduce that incentive, though it is unclear how many countries are willing to participate. "Treasury made clear that a global corporate minimum tax rate would ensure the global economy thrives based on a more level playing field in the taxation of multinational corporations, and would spur innovation, growth, and prosperity while improving fairness for middle class and working people," the release said. The news came following meetings with a steering group within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development that the Treasury said featured "earnest" talks of a global tax.

The Biden Administration hopes a new global minimum corporate tax will dampen the blow of its tax increases on the U.S. economy. Ms. Yellen might have thought long-running OECD negotiations toward a global minimum tax would be an easy way to achieve this goal. Instead, European governments are adopting a version of Napoleon’s maxim: Never interrupt Washington while it’s harming itself. ***One problem is the rate the OECD will propose for its own version of a minimum tax. The talks seem most likely to settle near 12%-13%, close to Ireland’s current corporate tax rate.

The overall economic story of 2021 is recovery—a multispeed recovery, but a rapid return toward normalcy nonetheless. For foreign direct investment, which was hammered last year, the story will be very different. Foreign direct investment dropped 38% in 2020, to its lowest level since 2005, according to data released last month by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Buying shares in a manufacturing firm in a foreign country is one thing. Overseas investment was already weak preceding the pandemic, blamed by analysts on escalating protectionism, particularly between the U.S. and China.
