OECD's Forum on Tax Administration

The OECD’s Forum on Tax Administration has published a discussion paper setting out a vision for the digital transformation of tax administration  looking at what more is possible in tax administration and discusses the step change that is available to tax administration through adopting new technologies and new ways of working

Chris Sanger, EY’s Global Government Tax Leader commented: “This discussion paper is intended to be followed by a roadmap for the future development and intentionally does not make specific recommendations.  This provides a good basis for tax administrations to consider the great advances achieved following the onset of COVID-19 and how they can continue to develop their systems to reduce the burdens on taxpayers and to increase efficiency and effectiveness.  A key next step is going to be turning the vision into practical solutions that can deliver value in the near term and well as programmes that will ensure that advances today can give rise to a coherent future system.

“The call to action is compelling, as is the description of the benefits to all of what is called Tax Administration 3.0. The challenge now is to develop the route to that shared vision, building from the wide range of starting positions in which different tax administrations find themselves. “Beyond this, there is an increasing role of tax administrations as the data centres of government and the interface with the citizen.  This points to building from today’s report, not just in relation to the existing role of tax administrations, but also in relation to what will be expected of them in the future.  This change will take time to deliver and the starting gun for the next leg in the relay race was fired today.”
