Taxation

"Promoting tax as system that supports the ability of the state to provide for the needs of the public."

Experts consider that the development of an equitable and broad based taxation system is a key part of the process of ensuring government accountability to citizens develops well in a country.

Spectrum's tax work is promoting tax as system that supports the ability of the state to provide for the needs of the public – or the surprising message "Taxation is good for you".

For the last 3-4 years we have been monitoring international tax justice work and particularly the different types of taxation and royalties that are paid by extractive industries and on natural resource developments. We are promoting further work on:

An international and domestic taxation agenda

  • Beneficial ownership as part of EITI process, and full transparency of taxation payments made
  • Trying to ensure companies coming to Myanmar pay Myanmar tax, rather than using tax havens.

A domestic taxation agenda

  • Promotion of the national benefits of a broad based and equitable tax system
  • Promote aspects of reform needed to ensure that the taxation system becomes functional quickly
  • Promotion of double tax treaties so that Myanmar receives taxation on income earned in Myanmar.
