The Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA) is the hub for the OECD’s work on tax, supporting the Committee on Fiscal Affairs and its subsidiary bodies, as well as the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. Our work covers international and domestic issues, across direct and indirect tax matters, and builds on strong relationships with OECD members and the engagement of a large number of non-OECD, G20 and developing countries as well as input from business, labour and civil society. This inclusive approach ensures our solutions are fit for the modern, globalised economy. Our work on tax issues is comprehensive — from developing international tax standards, to supporting governments through the implementation process, to undertaking peer reviews to ensure commitments are met, as well as collecting and analysing high-quality revenue data to support the design of tax policy to meet a range of government objectives. Our efforts to tackle tax evasion and address tax avoidance have received significant attention in recent years, building on and balancing our core work to remove undue tax barriers to cross-border trade and investment. Today more than 130 jurisdictions are committed to the OECD’s standards for tax transparency, monitored through the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. The new inclusive framework for the OECD/G20 BEPS Project brings together around 100 jurisdictions working on an equal footing to ensure we can close the gaps in the rules that lead to USD 100-240 billion of lost annual revenue to governments across the world. Promoting greater tax certainty to provide a stable environment that will foster economic growth will be a renewed focus in the coming years. Across all of our work on tax, we draw on the vast expertise within the CTPA to ensure that governments have access to guidance based on global best practice, robust standards, and the tools they need to implement them effectively.
