Parliamentarians sign concordat on greater transparency for international tax system

12 December 2016

Parliamentarians from jurisdictions around the world sign up to press for greater transparency in the international tax system.

Sixty Parliamentarians have now signed a concordat calling on governments to support greater tax transparency by multinational companies.

Most of signatories were in London for Friday's Global Tax Transparency Summit, hosted by the Committee of Public Accounts and attended by delegates from jurisdictions with a combined population of more than two billion people.

Central to the concordat is an agreement on support for public 'country-by-country reporting' to show, for each tax jurisdiction in which multinationals do business, their revenue; their profit before income tax; the income tax paid and accrued; total employment; capital; retained earnings, and tangible assets.
