  • To see the data for all years select “All years” from the drop-down box in the bottom left corner, then select the economies/regions for which you want to see the data and click on “Apply”. Use the buttons at the top of the screen to move through the different indicators.
  • To display the data for every economy in a region, select the “Region with economies” from the regions menu within the economy/region menu. This allows you to show, for example, all the economies in the OECD.
  • To export a PDF of the chart you have created, click on “Save to PDF” and use the left and right arrows above the “save to PDF” button to display the data points that you want to be listed in your PDF.

(PFI score)
Time to comply with a VAT refund (hours) Where there is a greater than 50% chance of further interactions with the tax authority following the submission of a VAT refund claim, the time required by these interactions is included in the VAT components of the index.
Time to obtain a VAT refund (weeks) Where there is a greater than 50% chance of further interactions with the tax authority following the submission of a VAT refund claim, the time required by these interactions is included in the VAT components of the index.
Time to comply with a corporate income tax correction (hours) Includes the time required to correct a corporate income tax error and, if there is a greater than 25% chance of review by the tax authority, the time required to prepare and submit information for the review.
Time to complete a corporate income tax correction (weeks) The length of time between submitting the correction and the receipt of the final outcome of the review. "Review likelihood <25%" indicates that a review would occur in less than 25% of cases and so the economy receives the best score on this component. The exceptions to this are Denmark, Libya Luxembourg, Myanmar and the Netherlands where the review likelihood is below 25% and the time represents the delay before the additional tax payment can be made.
