The OECD announced that its member countries have reached a new agreement on taxing internet companies operating across borders and paying little to no corporate income tax due to a lack of physical presence in a country. They aim to present a first proposal to G20 finance ministers at their meeting in June and agree the new international tax rules in 2020.
