Economic Inequality and Taxation are Feminist Issues

In recent years, women’s organizations, movements and advocates around the world have been outspoken about the links between tax evasion and tax avoidance and gender equality. When corporations do not pay their fair share of taxes, there is less money to invest in public services, sustainable infrastructure and social protection, which are the key drivers for gender equality.

ICRICT welcomes OECD decision to discuss radical solutions to end multinationals tax avoidance

ICRICT welcomes the publication by the OECD of a “Policy Note - Addressing the Tax Challenges of the Digitalisation of the Economy”.  This note shows clearly that the OECD is finally ready to engage on real reforms that ICRICT has constantly advocated for, considering, notably, a move beyond the arm’s length principle, the principle underpinning the current international tax architecture. This was a taboo until now.

ICRICT's new paper: BEPS 2.0. What the OECD BEPS has achieved and what real reform should look like.

The Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) initiative, launched by the OECD in 2015 has resulted in helpful solutions for some of the most shocking tax avoidance mechanisms. But it has failed to address the core problem: companies are still allowed to move their profits wherever they want and to take advantage of very low tax jurisdictions.

ICRICT thinks the OECD BEPS process has achieved what it could, within the constraints of politics driven by big corporations. It is time now to move away from the transfer pricing system towards a fairer and more effective system. Read more about our critics and proposals in this a new paper.

AMLO vs Bolsorano: Opposing Views on Development

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, 65, known by his initials AMLO, took office as potentially the most powerful Mexican president in decades. The far-right Jair Bolsonaro will do so a month later, on January 1, 2019.

The differences between the two are profound, in terms of their origins, political trajectories, ideologies, and styles. But in these turbulent times of absolute failure of Latin American states, the main battleground will be that of economic proposals, in two countries that are world champions of inequality.

Un año después de los Paradise Papers, la falta de progresos es preocupante

Un año después de los Paradise Papers, el mundo no ha progresado lo suficiente como para abordar el grave problema de la ocultación de la riqueza en los paraísos fiscales. Se estima que el 10% del PIB mundial está oculto en paraísos fiscales, y que la desigualdad aumenta tanto en los países desarrollados como en los países en desarrollo, por lo que la falta de progresos es preocupante, según Comisión Independiente para la Reforma de la Tributación Corporativa Internacional (ICRICT).
