OECD’s work on taxation for 2018/19

printer Mail

The OECD’s centre for tax policy and administration has published a brochure highlighting its key work areas for 2018/19.

‘The scope and importance of the OECD’s work on tax has never been greater,’ says Pascal Saint-Amans, director of the centre for tax policy and administration, in his introduction to the brochure.

Among forthcoming events, the global forum on VAT is due to report in March 2019 at its meeting in Melbourne on best practice for implementing the standards recommended by the international VAT/GST guidelines for collection of VAT on online sales.

An update on the tax challenges arising from digitalisation, including crypto-currencies, is expected in a report to the G20 in June 2019.

In regard to digitalisation, the OECD says: ‘The most pressing challenge for the inclusive framework and the international tax community more generally is how to bridge the divide among the various points of view so that coherence of the international tax system is maintained.’
