REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach BERLIN () – The German government is sticking to the goal of enacting a global corporate tax reform drafted last year as scheduled for Jan. 1, 2023, Finance Minister Christian Lindner said during a meeting with its G20 counterparts on Friday. “It’s an undeniably ambitious timetable, but it’s also a big and important project for international tax justice,” Lindner said when asked if he still supports the deadline. Last October, nearly 140 countries agreed on a minimum tax rate of 15% for multinational corporations to make it harder for companies like Google (NASDAQ:), Amazon (NASDAQ:) and Facebook (NASDAQ:) to park profits in low-tax countries. . Earlier on Friday, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said he “really asked for a swift implementation” of the agreement, as he also supported the 2023 deadline. The timetable is widely seen as ambitious, not least as the administration of US President Joe Biden struggles to pass legislation that would bring US legislation in line with the global deal.
