Tax policy and administration


Paying Taxes 2017

Access our joint study with the World Bank that measures and assesses the ease of paying taxes across 190 economies.

Our role in tax policy involves working with a wide range of stakeholders. Our global Tax network helps individuals and organisations with the tax side of their businesses and investments, such as tax compliance and tax planning. Some of our professionals are more focused on tax policy more directly - for example:

  • working with governments on their tax efficiency and capacity to establish effective tax regimes and administrative systems
  • undertaking benchmarking exercises, working in collaboration with outside organisations such as our Paying Taxes project with the World Bank Group
  • helping to bridge the relationship gap between tax administrations and businesses that want to adopt a more cooperative compliance regime
  • advising on the feasibility and efficiency of greater tax transparency that benefits businesses and policy-makers
  • exploring the impact of tax rule changes both domestically and internationally, as with the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) action plan
