The debate on responsible behaviour in tax is at the forefront of the political agenda.

Tax Transparency and Responsibility

Global, cross-border tax is complex and ultimately every citizen around the world is impacted by it.

KPMG is keen to develop a shared understanding of how responsible tax for the common good is best defined, what it looks like in practice and how this is beneficial for our clients and society as a whole.

Since October 2014 the think tank CoVi, supported by KPMG, has brought a broad coalition of voices and opinions together from over 170 individual stakeholders. These have included taxpayers, academia, media, government, politicians, NGOs and the KPMG community; to inform our thinking on what responsible tax behaviour looks like and what constitutes responsible tax for the common good in today’s world – join the debate.
