Hide / Show Abstract

This publication provides internationally comparable data on tax levels and tax structures for Indonesia and Malaysia. The model is the OECD Revenue Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established methodology, for OECD member countries. By extending this OECD methodology to Asian countries, Revenue Statistics in Asian Countries enables meaningful cross-country comparisons about tax levels and structures not only between Asian economies, but also between them and their industrialised peers. Future editions will cover additional Asian countries.

  • Foreword and Acknowledgements

    Revenue Statistics in Asian Countries: Trends in Indonesia and Malaysia is a joint publication by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre. It presents detailed, internationally comparable data on tax revenues for four Asian economies, two of which (Korea and Japan) are OECD members. Its approach is based on the well-established methodology of the OECD Revenue Statistics database (OECD, 2013), which has become an essential reference source for OECD member countries. Comparisons are also made with the average for OECD economies.

  • Executive summary

    Tax revenues as a proportion of national incomes in Indonesia and Malaysia are substantially lower than in Korea and Japan. In 2011 (the latest available year for all countries covered in the Report), the ratios in Indonesia and Malaysia ranged from 12-16% compared with 26-28% in the two countries that are OECD members. The OECD average was higher still at 34.1%.
