The seminar was designed to introduce the concept of value-added tax (VAT) imposed on digital businesses in more than 160 countries in line with the expansion of the digital economy and to provide training on the core content of the OECD VAT/GST Guidelines. The program also shared experiences on VAT implementation in OECD member countries and provided case studies on key issues and best practices that participants could utilize in their own countries.
Various experts including Ms. Stephane Buydens (OECD), Mr. Kshama Purohit (UK) participated in the seminar, and more than 50 tax officials from the Asia-Pacific area attended the seminar via Zoom.
