OECD: Forum’s discussion of tax administration issues, two-pillar solution, digital transformation

Meetings of the OECD's Forum on Tax Administration

Two-pillar solution, digital transformation

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) today issued a release regarding meetings this week of the OECD's Forum on Tax Administration.

The participants at the OECD’s Form on Tax Administration (16-17 December 2021) discussed tax administration issues including the implementation of the two-pillar solution, lessons learned from the ongoing responses to the global COVID-19 pandemic, digital transformation, and capacity building.

The Forum on Tax Administration is a global forum on tax administration for revenue commissioners. It has 53 members, including all G20 and OECD member countries as well as selected advanced and emerging non-OECD economies.

As reported in today’s OECD release, the forum participants agreed to:

  • Prioritise support for implementation of the two-pillar solution, including the possible further development of tax certainty tools to help prevent disputes and reduce burdens
  • Develop a new strategic framework covering both digitalisation and digital transformation to inform both domestic reforms and international collaboration, drawing from the new digital transformation maturity model and the web-based inventory of tax technology Initiatives to be launched in early 2022
  • Prioritise tax-capacity building initiatives to assist developing countries with the implementation of the two pillars and the further digitalisation of tax administration.

At the meetings, two reports were released:
