Tax matters: Digital taxes and trade wars – will the OECD/G20 agreement bring tax peace?

Following the recent OECD/G20 agreement on the two pillars, the US has agreed with various countries to terminate its trade actions against them in return for the withdrawal of their digital services taxes (DSTs).

In this latest episode of our Tax Matters podcast Joshua Critchlow interviews Lorand BartelsKatharina Kubik and Brin Rajathurai about the implications of these recent agreements and what trade law challenges may remain in relation to DSTs. The team also discuss tax developments on the horizon that will need to be monitored from a trade perspective and explore challenges around getting the OECD agreement implemented in the US.
