Round Table Events

A series of roundtables focused on advancing the global agenda and conversation around Responsible Tax.

As a part of the Global Responsible Tax Project, KPMG International, in partnership with Jericho Chambers, have been hosting a series of roundtables focused on advancing the global agenda and conversation around Responsible Tax. With each roundtable inviting a wide range of global stakeholders, including elected politicians, global institutions, tax and other business leaders, activists, academics, media, and more, these discussions provide a range of voices with varying viewpoints the opportunity to listen, learn, share and develop their thinking on a tax system that can work for all.

Most recently, these roundtables have been held virtually to focus on the business and economic impacts of COVID-19, specifically as we enter into the new reality.

However, there is a feeling that existing standards might either be too simplistic or overly challenging for some companies or not appropriate at their stage in a transparency journey. Therefore, the B Team, KMPG International and Jericho have started to focus on how to arrive at tax metrics to support ESG goals that could gain wider buy-in.

Tax and ESG – The View of ESG experts

At the moment there is a dilemma that, on the one hand, some companies consider existing standards for country-by-country type disclosures (e.g., GRI 207) are too challenging, while on the other hand, disclosures required by accounting standards are too high level to give much meaningful information on a company’s tax profile. The B Team, KPMG International and Jericho Chambers have therefore started to focus attention on how to arrive at an approach, or possibly certain tax metrics, to support ESG goals which could gain wider buy-in and encourage a critical mass of companies to become more tax transparent.

The impact of carbon pricing and potential effects of a CBAM

Participants thought that if some countries or regions significantly increase CO2 reduction ambitions but others do not, there is likely to be a significant risk of carbon leakage. While a global approach to creating a minimum carbon price would be best approach, it could be very difficult to achieve.
