Paying Taxes 2017 – comparison of the tax systems in 190 global economies

Paying Taxes_2017.jpg ‹ Back to the articles

Paying Taxes_2017.jpgPaying Taxes 2017 is a cooperative research publication produced by PwC and the World Bank with the aim of comparing the tax systems in 190 countries around the world through the application of a case study company. The report measures and compares the tax burden and time spent on complying with the tax system in the various countries.

As expected, Sweden ranks high in terms of the amount of levied taxes and, at the same time, is a relatively simple country in terms of complying with the tax system, as seen from a global perspective.

Further information is found on www.pwc.com/payingtaxes where, amongst other things, there is an interactive model allowing you to choose the specific countries and regions you want to compare.
