OECD's live training in taxation


» Back to Global Relations Programme


The OECD’s Global Relations Programme offers tax officials from developing countries the necessary training to tackle today’s most pressing challenges in international taxation. Live training activities are offered free of charge in three formats:

Virtual classes/workshops: 3-4 hour training sessions held through videoconference, generally delivered over 3-4 days. These sessions feature live presentations, discussions and case studies and make use of interactive tools (e.g. chat boxes, polls and breakout rooms).

Live webinars: 30-120 minute live presentations covering core aspects of selected topics and setting the foundation for more in-depth training, and Q&A sessions.

In-person workshops: 3-5 day in-person events providing thorough and highly interactive training, including the opportunity to share experiences, best practices and discuss complex case studies with experts and peers. Participants are nominated by country representatives.


All events are offered free of charge.


Virtual classes

While in-person events remain a key feature of the programme, most GRP activities and products are delivered through virtual means. You can register to our virtual classes through the Knowledge Sharing Platform (KSP). Please note that the KSP is only open to tax officials and a professional email address is required.


In the link below you will find the calendar of confirmed virtual classes and live webinars. Note that the calendar is updated regularly with new information on dates and timing, and new workshops are added regularly.

Live webinars

A live webinar is a presentation (30-120 minutes) covering core aspects of selected topics and setting the foundation for more in-depth training. These sessions can also be delivered as a Q&A format where participants come and ask questions after having finished specific self-paced tools.

A list of live webinars is available in our calendar page. If you are interested in participating in a live webinar please contact [email protected] indicating the name of the event or asking to be added to our distribution list.
