First phase of a new global Inventory of Tax Technology Initiatives released

First phase of a new global Inventory of Tax Technology Initiatives released

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) today released the first phase of a new global Inventory of Tax Technology Initiatives which contains information on the use of leading technology tools and digitalization solutions implemented by 76 tax administrations across the world.

The inventory was developed by the OECD Forum on Tax Administration with the assistance of eight key partner organizations. The partners will continue working together to increase the inventory’s global coverage. National tax administrations that would like to be included in the inventory are invited to complete the underlying Global Survey on Digitalisation [PDF 387 KB] of tax administrations and submit it to the Forum Secretariat or any of the partners. Administrations wishing to undertake a self-assessment using the digital transformation maturity model are directed to contact the Forum Secretariat. Around 50 jurisdictions have now completed a self-assessment using the model.

As noted in today's OECD release, in addition to providing a snapshot of the implementation of particular tax technology tools or approaches, the inventory will be further developed in a second phase to include multiple case studies as well as links to a wide range of supporting materials, providing a one-stop-shop for tax administrations and other stakeholders on digitalization initiatives.
