The European Commission has proposed public country-by-country reporting and many corporates will be ill-prepared for the need to disclose their financial results by country.
Now data will be public it will be more than just the tax departments of MNCs who will be losing sleep. Corporate communications will now need to consider how this data will be used and what they should be telling their shareholders, their customers and the board.
With the growing rise in media attention to all things tax related, public reporting is likely to leave more companies open to media scrutiny, resulting in a rise in public interest creating social media noise and calls for boycotts.
