FACTI-webinar: Norway - a driving force of global tax reform?
The UN High Level Panel "FACTI" recently put forward 14 proposals for global reforms to halt capital flight and tax evasion. The ambitious proposals could have been branded as unrealistic last year, but this year major breakthroughs in the global tax arena have set the tone: the EU announced a revolution of transparency for companies when they voted for public country-by-country reporting, and the US fully supports global minimum tax for companies. Both in line with the FACTI report. FACTI arose after strong support from the Norwegian government, but whether the proposals will be guidelines for the future will depend on continued political support. How will Norway contribute to a turning point in global tax co-operation and to stop tax havens?
