The issue of tax fairness has been top of mind for many Canadians since the shocking revelations contained in the Panama Papers first hit the headlines earlier this year. In response to the global tax crisis, the Canadian government has routinely cited the OECD’s Action Plan on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting as the way forward on the international stage.
But the OECD plan is not without its challenges. At its worst, it has been called non-inclusive, secretive and ineffective. Even supporters largely concede that it’s merely a step in the right direction, not a comprehensive set of solutions.
In “Tax Fairness: An Opportunity to Lead,” ACFO has collected and synthesized recommendations from tax experts and advocates across Canada aimed at making real progress while working within the OECD framework. The result is a handbook for any progressive government that wants to take the lead in the fight against tax abuse.
