Issue 54 - March 2020

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.

Addressing the challenge of what a fair and workable tax system should look like in our modern global economy, many countries have pressed ahead and announced unilateral measures to implement their version of how the digital economy should be taxed. BDO has created an interactive global tool to help navigate this emerging landscape. The first edition, gives an overview of the rules on taxing digital transactions in some forty jurisdictions. 

Take part in a new programme of international research in tax, the BDO Global Tax Outlook 2020. Spanning more than fifty countries the research provides the opportunity to compare your business and the function of tax, against similar businesses, locally and internationally.

You can also read how US businesses are dealing with the digital economy, tax reform, and tax complexity, in BDO’s US Tax Outlook 2020.

In this edition of World Wide Tax News, we look other important topics, including the introduction of the Base Erosion and Anti-abuse Tax regulations in the United States of America, the Public Emergency law in Argentina, tax reforms in Costa Rica, Paraguay and Switzerland, Budget announcements in Hong Kong, India and Zimbabwe, and other current developments in tax, across the globe.
