The latest Report from OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría to G20 Leaders describes the continuing fight against tax avoidance and tax evasion as one of the major success stories of the G20, founded on enhanced international co-operation.
The report, released 5th July 2017, updates progress in key areas of OECD-G20 tax work, including movement towards automatic exchange of information between tax authorities and implementation of key measures to address tax avoidance by multinationals.
“Tax issues have been a key priority of the G20 since its inception, and 2017 is the year of implementation,” Mr Gurría said. “In the midst of the backlash against globalisation, we need to deliver on an agenda of inclusive growth. The work of the G20 and the OECD to repair and improve the international tax system so everyone pays their fair share remains one of the most important responses to these challenges, as well as one which is having a concrete impact.”
