The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants Responds to the OECD’s Proposal to Address the Tax Challenges of a Global, Digital Economy

May 28, 2019

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2019--

The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association) has submitted comments and recommendations to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) public consultation on how to address the taxation of a global, digital economy.

In its response, the Association recommended that “a consensus-based, equitable, and successfully durable rebalancing of multi-jurisdictional taxing rights must have four elements:”

The Association specifically cited five of its Principles of Good Tax Policy as the framework for its response: (1) equity and fairness to taxpayers; (2) certainty over the amount, timing and method of payment of a tax; (3) effective tax administration to both governments and taxpayers; (4) unimpeded or no reduction in economic growth and efficiency; and (5) enablement of appropriate government revenues.

Earlier this year, the Association provided the OECD with its Taxation of the Digitized Economy policy paper, which calls for “international coordination to develop a global solution to the taxation concerns raised by digital transactions and the general digitalization of the economy.”
