Description: Politicians meeting at the G20 conference Saturday have endorsed the notion of a minimum corporate tax. The countries of the G20 make up about 80% of the world’s economic output.

Discussion points:

1) Have you been aware of the presence of tax havens?

2) Do you think that the 15% minimum tax will reduce the incentive for companies to move income to low tax countries?

3) Chapter 5 in Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making introduces the concept of the multi-step income statement. Where does corporate income tax appear on this multi-step income statement?
