The Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative was introduced initially by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2013 but later endorsed by the G20 in November 2015. It has had a significant impact on the global network of tax treaties. The introduction of the multilateral instrument has facilitated the swift implementation of numerous BEPS recommendations, allowing countries such as Indonesia, a member of the G20, to quickly modify their tax treaties without the need for extensive renegotiation that could take years to achieve.
