The Organisation for Economic Cooperation (OECD) on Wednesday unveiled its proposal to update tax rules applicable to multinational tech companies in order to address the challenges of a globalised, digitalised economy.
In addition, the proposals for global corporate tax reform are more broadly aimed at lowering and redistributing the amount of profits that is allocated to low-tax jurisdictions.
The government said past year that global digital companies have a large consumer base in India but don't pay enough taxes domestically. As it stands, the framework appears to be a victory for large, consumption-heavy countries like the United States, China and much of Western Europe, and a loss for so-called tax havens, like Ireland.
The revenue threshold would take into account certain activities, such as online advertising services, which are directed at non-paying users in locations that are different from those in which the relevant revenues are booked.
The drive for a global rule book has received new urgency as countries unilaterally adopt plans for a tax on digital companies over frustration with current rules.
The new rules would target "large consumer-facing businesses" that generate annual revenues from supplying consumer products or providing digital services, even if they do not have a permanent established business presence there.
The companies that will be affected are defined as companies that operate across borders and have a total revenue of over $821 million.

"It would enable France, for example, to tax an element of the sales of Google to French advertisers and the U.S.to have greater taxing rights over the profits attributable to the brands of the French luxury brand company LVMH related to the sales in America", The Financial Times said.
It said that it had drafted its proposals on behalf of 134 countries, by bringing together "common elements of three competing proposals from member countries", in an effort to make worldwide tax rules "fit for objective for the global economy of the 21st Century". The UK government's tax, nicknamed the Google Tax, was implemented in 2016 after the search engine giant was ordered to pay £130 million in back taxes. France has already faced threats from the United States after recently passing a 3-per-cent tax on digital companies, which the Liberals in Canada used as a model for their own campaign pledge.
