Pillar 2 Ruminations: Exploring the Impact of GloBE on Transactions

The Pillar 2 global anti-base erosion (“GloBE”) rules generally impose a top-up tax to ensure that each multinational company is taxed at 15% in each jurisdiction in which it operates. Countries have been implementing these rules into their national legislation at an accelerated pace; many multinationals are already subject to them in 2024 in at least one jurisdiction, and many more will feel their bite in 2025.  As the GloBE Rules come online, they will have a significant and multifaceted impact on M&A transactions and deal structuring. The focus of the panel will be on the practical impact of the GloBE rules on M&A transactions. The panel will examine the key Pillar 2 considerations that M&A practitioners should be aware of, including the application of the transition rules, the interaction of GloBE and regular tax attributes, and structuring joint ventures in a Pillar 2 world
