The Government fully supports the goal of improving the measurement and monitoring of base erosion and profit shifting, and improving tax transparency.

As part of that, it supports the principle behind the publication of aggregated and anonymized Country-by-Country Reporting information as per the recommendations in BEPS Action 11 report.

It is important to ensure that data is accurate and reliable, and the Government cannot agree to publication unless it is.
