Throughout this report, “country” is used as the primary descriptor for a geographical area because that is the word used by the OECD/G20 base erosion and profit shifting project in their proposal for country-by-country reporting. This is one of the four minimum reporting standards to which around 135 countries have committed, covering the tax residence jurisdictions of nearly all large multinational enterprises. In this report “country” may also refer to locations, jurisdictions or territories which have their own tax regimes or discrete rules.
