As country by country reporting (CbCR) of tax information picks up momentum through a series of initiatives internationally, the Federation of European Accountants (FEE) has released a template proposal to help businesses be compliant with CbCR requirements.

The template outlines the basic information for businesses to disclose when issuing a CbC report and aims to minimise the cost of preparation (by using readily available information) and the risk of disclosing economically sensitive information whilst providing useful information to stakeholders.

The template can be accessed here: Country-by-country reporting template proposal
