IMF/OECD Report on Tax Certainty

The OECD/IMF report explores the nature of tax uncertainty, its main sources and effects on business decisions and outlines a set of concrete and practical approaches to help policymakers and tax administrations shape a more certain tax environment. The report highlights that there is risk of uncertainty discouraging investment.

The report concludes that uncertainty in the corporate income tax and the VAT systems is reported by business as having an important influence on investment and location decisions. According to businesses, issues related to tax administration were ranked as among the major drivers of uncertainty in tax systems. On the other hand, tax administrations identified taxpayer behavior as an important source of uncertainty. The report further provides insights into other sources of uncertainty and elaborates on practical tools to enhance tax certainty.

  • The G20/OECD Inclusive Framework on BEPS implementation;
