The Forum on Tax Administration aims to influence the environment within which tax systems operate, to move away from a confrontational dialogue to more constructive engagement with taxpayers.
The Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) was created in 2002 and is a unique forum on tax administration for Commissioners from 46 OECD and non-OECD countries, including every member of the G20. Our vision is to create a forum through which Commissioners can identify, discuss and influence relevant global trends and develop new ideas to enhance tax administration around the world.
Our key aim is to improve taxpayer services and tax compliance by helping tax administrations increase the efficiency, effectiveness and fairness of tax administration and reduce the costs of compliance. To ensure that the results of our work are available to as many tax administrations as possible, we publish the results of our key studies in the form of reports and information or guidance notes in the tax administration guidance series.
FOCUS ONThis report is a unique and comprehensive survey of tax administration systems, practices and performance across 56 advanced and emerging economies, including all OECD, EU, and G20 members.
Tax commissioners from 38 countries met in Dublin on 23-24 October 2014 and agreed that greater international co-operation will be necessary to implement the results of the OECD/G20 BEPS Project and the Standard for automatic exchange of information.
State Administration of Taxation of the People’s Republic of China
The State Administration of Taxation (SAT) of the People’s Republic of China – host of the FTA Plenary in Beijing 11-13, May 2016 - has recently released its Blueprint for Deepening the Reform of Collection and Administrative Systems of State and Local Tax Administrations. The FTA is pleased to share a copy of this plan for informational purposes to illustrate tax administration reform efforts being undertaken. The overarching themes for improving service to taxpayers, strengthening compliance, leveraging technology, streamlining programs, enhancing risk analysis, and building the knowledge and expertise of tax administrators are closely aligned with leading tax administration practices and numerous OECD recommendations and areas of focus. The FTA looks forward to seeing positive outcomes of the plan, including promoting collaborative tax administration between the State and Local Tax Offices in China, and in facilitating enhanced taxpayer services.
