We derive the leading-power singular terms at three loops for both and 0-jettiness, , for generic color-singlet processes. Our results provide the complete set of differential subtraction terms for and subtractions at , which are an important ingredient for matching calculations with parton showers. We obtain the full three-loop structure of the relevant beam and soft functions, which are necessary ingredients for the resummation of and at and order, and which constitute important building blocks in other contexts as well. The nonlogarithmic boundary coefficients of the beam functions, which contribute to the integrated subtraction terms, are not yet fully known at three loops. By exploiting consistency relations between different factorization limits, we derive results for the and beam function coefficients at in the threshold limit, and we also estimate the size of the unknown terms beyond threshold.
