The Changing Face of Tax

A global report from BDO

Across the globe, tax leaders face unprecedented change and transition, as they respond to pressures both internal and external to the business.  Businesses are facing key challenges in relation to their tax affairs and evolving the focus of their activity.

In response to the Covid-19 crisis, developments in technology and tax digitisation, the demands of tax authorities and the pace of change in both international and national tax reform and regulation - tax has become one of the most important mechanisms to support businesses and individuals throughout the crisis. Global Tax Outlook 2020 research shows

  • how tax plays a key part in the calculations of both businesses and of governments in response to the crisis
  • how the world of tax is changing.
