  • Sharing information and insights at SGATAR workshop

    ATO Commissioner Chris Jordan and Deputy Commissioner International Mark Konza attended the 48th annual meeting of the Study Group on Asian Tax Administration and Research (SGATAR) workshop in Hangzhou, China in November 2018.

    SGATAR is comprised of 17 members from the Asia-Pacific region. They share information and insights about specific tax issues, to enhance tax administration performance in the region. The ATO has been instrumental in leading the SGATAR reform agenda.

    Members discussed ways for further cooperation on taxation and the World Bank‘s ‘Ease of Doing Business’ methodology.

    The meeting also allowed members to:

    • exchange best practices in organising, planning and delivering capacity-building activities
    • drive the further development of structured and sustained capacity-building SGATAR programs, and
    • explore possibilities for cooperation with other international and regional organisations.

    Australian tax officers delivered presentations about:

    • implementing the Common Reporting Standard
    • implementing aspects of the OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Package, and
    • the role of tax service providers.

    Our SGATAR involvement is part of our commitment to sharing information and collaborating with other tax administrations.
