'CbC' means 'country-by-country' reporting in relation to tax.
Taking the UK as an example, where CbC reporting has been implemented with effect from 2016:
UK CbC reporting applies to all UK-headquartered multinationals and UK subsidiaries of foreign-owned multinationals.
These companies are required to provide the UK tax authorities (HMRC) with information about their global activities, profits and taxes annually for each tax jurisdiction in which they do business.
"HMRC thinks [CbC reporting] will influence behaviour and not just disclosure."
