G20 International Tax Symposium Report
The G20 International Tax Symposium was held in Tokyo on 9 to 10 May 2014 and brought together representatives from government, business, international organisations, civil society and academia to discuss the G20 tax agenda. Over 230 delegates from nearly 40 countries attended.
The purpose of the Symposium was to ensure a broad range of stakeholders, including low-income and developing countries, had an opportunity to contribute to the G20 tax agenda. It was an opportunity for countries from the Asia-Pacific region and those not represented at the OECD and G20 to discuss global solutions and the impact of reforms.
This report summarises the Symposium discussions and highlights recurring themes, including widespread support for the G20 tax agenda and the need for consultation and cooperation to achieve reform. The report will be presented to the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in September and will inform their deliberations on the G20 tax agenda.
Treasury organised and hosted the event including setting the agenda, speakers and moderators. The event was held with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Finance, the OECD, Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales and the Global Accounting Alliance Sponsorship. This support helped ensure reach to a broad audience, including participation from developing nations and the contribution of experts from the tax and business sectors. The Symposium was one of several G20 events held in partnership with other organisations.
