4 November, 2013
This briefing paper on tax justice issues in Africa was written in preparation for meetings of the African Union Economic, Social and Cultural Council and the African Tax Administrators Forum (ATAF) that took place in November 2013.

The aim of this paper is to raise awareness amongst PSI affiliates, and also affiliates of other Global Union Federations and civil society partners, of tax justice priorities. This will inform regional and country based campaign planning activities.  

This briefing provides an overview of:

  1. Why is taxation important?
  2. Tax havens and offshore finance;
  3. Tax base erosion & profit shifting (BEPS).
  4. Addressing tax evasion.
