The task force works to:
- optimise the internationally available resources to help build tax systems in developing countries
- help developing countries build their capacity to ensure they can tax multinational enterprises fairly through effective transfer pricing regimes
- help developing countries agree and implement tax information exchange agreements
- examine the case for and against reporting relevant financial data by multinational enterprises on a country-by-country basis
This work is directly linked to the call by the G20 to ensure developing countries benefit from the new era of tax transparency.
