Paying Taxes, a study from PwC and the World Bank Group, was published annually from 2006 to 2019 using data from the World Bank Group's Doing Business Study. In September 2021, the World Bank announced that it has discontinued Doing Business and therefore the Paying Taxes data on this page is not current and will only be retained for reference, but will not be updated going forward.
Paying Taxes provided 15 years of data and comparative analysis on the tax systems in 191 economies to help governments and businesses understand how their tax systems compared on the global stage and to help tax administrations learn from others.
