The Global Tax Outlook 2020 provides a report back from BDO’s new international research programme in Tax. It's touching on the most common issues business leaders are grappling with in Tax, today and looking 2-5 years ahead.

Spanning more than fifty countries from across all regions of the globe (EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific), the Global Tax Outlook provides a window into the future of tax, reaching tax and business leaders from across a spectrum of businesses, from the newly emerging to some of the very largest.

We commenced our research in February this year, as countries were anticipating but not yet in the full lock down phase of the COVID-19 crisis.  So while there was clearly caution in the markets at this time, the research themes were designed to focus on the underlying regulatory and technological challenges facing the future of tax and the business of tax, today and beyond. 

Working together with the research organisation Meridian West and with the inputs of our BDO subject matter experts from across the globe we see some consistent themes.  This report shares these globally and points to where findings vary, whether this be by region, or the size and type of business.
