OECD Global Forum on VAT Meets in April

The OECD released a draft agenda on the 4th meeting of the OECD Global Forum on VAT, which will take place on April 12-14. The meeting will focus on the policy and operational challenges faced by tax authorities and on the efficient and the effective implementation of the International VAT/GST Guidelines. 

Background: OECD International VAT/GST Guidelines

The Guidelines address the problems that arise from national VAT systems being applied in an uncoordinated way. They set standards that should ensure neutrality in cross-border trade and a more coherent taxation of business-to-business (B2B) trade in services.

Implementation of International VAT/GST Guidelines

The fourth meeting of the OECD Global Forum on VAT will focus in particular on the policy and operational challenges faced by tax authorities in the era of digital globalization. In addition, the meeting will approach the efficient and effective implementation of the standards and mechanisms for addressing these challenges recommended by the International VAT/GST Guidelines.

Recent VAT/GST reforms

The Global Forum will also look at recent and ongoing VAT/GST reforms around the world and examine the outcomes of recent VAT/GST policy research and analysis in a range of areas that are of common interest to countries and organizations worldwide. The upcoming meeting will also reserve considerable time for analysis and experience sharing in the area VAT/GST fraud detection and effective countermeasures; on VAT/GST refunds policy and management; on digitalization of tax administration and on improving VAT/GST compliance through incentives. 

Tax Officials and Business Representatives Invited

The fourth meeting of the OECD Global Forum on VAT is aimed at senior tax officials and representatives of international organizations. A delegation of academics and business representatives will also be invited to participate.
