Developing a common framework for disclosing tax information

Developing common framework for disclosing tax info

There can be little doubt that the debate around greater tax transparency by companies is becoming increasingly prominent. There are a growing number of calls from various parts of civil society for companies to be transparent about where they operate around the globe, where they make their profits, where they pay their taxes and how much tax they pay.
