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 3-5 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: 30-90 minute live presentations covering core aspects of selected topics and setting the foundation for more in-depth training.

Face-to-face 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.


All events are offered free of charge.


Virtual classes

While in-person events remain a key feature of the programme and will resume as soon as the sanitary situation allows it, most 2022 GRP activities and products are expected to be 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.
