Paying Taxes 2019 – global comparison of 190 tax systems

TM_pattern-15 ‹ Back to the articles

Paying Taxes 2019 is a unique report produced by PwC and the World Bank Group with the aim of comparing the tax regimes of 190 countries through the application of a medium-sized domestic case study company. The report measures and compares the tax burden in the various countries and the amount of time incurred in complying with their tax systems. The report also describes how the administration of taxes is affected by technology and how technology can change revenue streams subject to taxation.

Sweden, as to be expected, found very high up on the scale as regards the tax burden and is shown to be a relatively simple country in global terms when it comes to complying with the tax system.

Further information is found on www.pwc.com/payingtaxes where you, amongst other things, can find an interactive model through which you, yourself, can determine the countries and regions you want to use in comparing tax systems.
