Assessing the tax implications of the financial crisis
Paris, 28-29 January 2009
Senior tax policy officials from the MENA region and OECD countries met in the framework of the Working Group on Tax Policy and Administration on 28-29 January 2009 at the OECD Paris headquarters to address the implementation of tax policies supporting business climate development. The meeting included a dynamic exchange of views on alternative approaches, and experiences with specific policy measures.
With its role to help foster dialogue in support of tax reform efforts, the Working Group 3 on Tax Policy Analysis draws on data, analytical tools, publications and reports on tax policy making compiled by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTPA), as well as activities of other MENA-OECD Investment Programme working groups.
The objectives of this meeting were to:
hold discussions on the tax implications of the current global financial crisis
analyse the implications of globalisation for the taxation of small and medium-sized enterprises
advance work on tax indicators
plan future work on tax policy
An informal half-day technical meeting for tax policy analysts was held prior to the working group meeting on 27 January 2009 to discuss tax policy theory and analysis in relation to work on tax indicators.
