Tax policy & administration

Working with government and other stakeholders

PwC’s role in tax policy involves working with a wide range of stakeholders. Our teams help individuals and organisations with the tax side of their businesses and investments, such as tax compliance and tax planning.

We also have expertise in the development of tax policy and how tax administrations themselves are established and managed from a legislative, organisational, systems and process perspective.

PwC’ indirect tax experts in the Middle East have helped put VAT systems into operation in leading and emerging jurisdictions around the world. PwC has worked with governments in the region advising them on the implementation of VAT.

What we do

  • 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.
