OECD Report Releases Global Taxation Trends

On September 13, 2017, the OECD is released a new report on the worldwide tax reforms. This report is the second edition of the annual publication Tax Policy Reforms: OECD and Selected Partner Economies.

The Annual Publication

An increasing number of countries have been employing tax policy reforms to boost economic growth, regulate behaviour of multinationals, and gather domestic revenues. Such a dynamic policy environment poses an intensive demand on information for both taxpayers and tax authorities, and the OECD annual publication intends to provide comparative information on tax reforms across countries and tracks tax policy developments over time.

The 2017 Report

The 2017 version of 92 pages presents the current tax revenue trends and summarizes tax policy reforms which were implemented, legislated or announced in 2016. To be noted, the report covers not only the 35 OECD countries, but also Argentina and South Africa as well. The report firstly reviews the macroeconomic background around the world, then tracks reforms to personal income tax, social security contributions, corporate income tax, value-added/general sales tax, excise duties, environmental taxes and property taxes across countries. It also points out the key tax policy trends in these areas over time. A video on main findings of the report is released as well, which is given by Pascal Saint-Amans, Director of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration.
