Still Broken

09 November 2015

Governments must do more to fix the international corporate tax system
New research shows that the gap between where companies pay tax and where they really do their business is huge. In 2012, US multinationals alone shifted $500–700bn, mostly to countries where these profits are not taxed, or taxed at very low rates. G20 countries themselves are among the biggest losers.

G20 governments must do more and should strongly support further reforms.
