On February 24, 2014, the Austrian Parliament passed the Tax Bill 2014 (Abgabenänderungsgesetz 2014). The act clearly aims at generating more tax revenue and some of the changes seem to tap into the most recent developments under the BEPS action plan drafted and published by the OECD. This Client Alert summarizes the most important changes and their effective date.
