As noted in the OECD release, the report—Tax Administration Responses to COVID-19: Recovery Period Planninghighlights that even during the immediate crisis period, there will be significant benefit from early business restoration planning to help identify the main challenges and opportunities for both tax administrations and taxpayers, and to take early preparatory actions.

In undertaking business restoration planning, tax administrations will need to take into account the distinguishing features of the COVID-19 pandemic which, unlike other crises, are likely to persist during the recovery period, in particular:

  • The continued risks to health, including from further outbreaks
  • The impacts on staff and administration systems as a result of the need for continuing adjustments
  • The potential length and volatility of the recovery period given the depth and scale of the economic shock
