“EY clients and OECD’s Pascal Saint-Amans discuss how rising tax uncertainty hurts business confidence and what’s being done to address concerns.”

I think Pascal Saint-Amans (Director OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration) says all that needs to be said on the matter “The best thing you can do to ensure a better relationship with tax administrations is to be less aggressive.”

    Very simple way to overcome uncertainty: overpay taxes! The problem exists because both companies and tax authorities want to maximize their own benefit, regardless of the consequences, so there is no real way to appease either, and no incentive either. Each type of entity has their own position of power (other than the small companies that are just railroaded by tax authorities), therefore, coupled with unnecessarily complex yet vague legislation, uncertainty is the result. I stand by my opinion that the best way to diminish uncertainty is for tax authorities to talk to each other before they talk to taxpayers.
