Taxation of the Digital Economy: Pushing fiscal boundaries

Issue 53 - December 2019

Welcome to the latest edition of BDO’s World Wide Tax News.

As always, there are many new tax developments to report and keep track of.

In the first article we share the latest insights on Taxation of the Digital Economy, highlights of the interview with the OECD which took place on 3 December with Stewart Brant, Head of Transfer Pricing, OECD and members of BDO’s Taxation of the Digital Economy taskforce, and of the views gathered to date from global business through our ongoing survey. The survey remains open and we encourage participation.  We also share links to the submissions made by BDO to the OECD in respect of this important policy area.

We also highlight our new World of Private Clients website, with key themes including transparency and worldwide reporting, global opportunities for relocation, and family and generational wealth.

Other articles deal with the important topics of the introduction of digital services taxes in Italy, new guidance on the Diverted Profits Tax in Australia, Brexit and corporation tax implications of Conservative party win in the United Kingdom, and other current developments in tax, across the globe.
