France and the United States have agreed to take leading roles in talks aimed at reaching a deal on a global tax mid-2020, working in a task force with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The pact comes on top of an earlier agreement over a French tax online giants like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. France would reimburse companies any excess taxes once an international deal is in place. OECD secretary-general Angel Gurria and French Ministre Bruno Le Maire said they hope to have an agreement on the table by the end of the year so that a deal on the global tax can be reached in the first semester of 2020.

UHY Victor Response to the Spread of COVID-19

UHY Victor is taking action to maintain the health and welfare of our team, our clients and support communal efforts to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

UHY Victor will remain open during this difficult period and client services will continue. We have implemented contingency plans which allow us to continue to operate as we all deal with the spreading pandemic.

In light of the present situation we have introduced the following measures:

  • Our staff and procedures have been structured so that our team can work remotely.
  • Our IT infrastructure and data are protected by cutting edge security systems.
  • To the extent possible, client meetings will be held through web meetings and other remote solutions.
  • Employees who experience the primary symptoms such as fever, cough and respiratory difficulties will work remotely until cleared.
  • Internally, we emphasize the importance of “social distancing”, and have enhanced our internal cleaning and disinfecting protocols.

UHY Victor will continue to monitor the changing situation and, will respond proactively as this major health challenge evolves.

We encourage all to stay informed and to visit the Public Health Agency of Canada COVID-19 site, and follow the guidelines set out by the government of Canada:

  • Now and always during cold and flu season, stay home if you are sick. Encourage those you know are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms.
  • Since respiratory viruses, such as the one that causes COVID-19, are spread through contact, change how you greet one another. Instead of a handshake, a kiss or a hug, a friendly wave or elbow bump is less likely to expose you to respiratory viruses.
  • Practice frequent hand hygiene and coughing and sneezing etiquette. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as toys and door handles.
