The impact of the OECD’s pillar two on international M&A
With international agreement having been reached on the key aspects of the OECD’s pillar two proposals, it is worthwhile to consider the impact these rules might have in practice in an M&A context.
Pillar two will affect financial modelling, as well as deal structuring and different bidders’ competitiveness.

With the intention that the rules are implemented in 2023/2024, multinationals will have to get to grips with these issues quickly.
