Special feature - Large taxpayer services in Asia

Revenues from corporate income taxes play a significant role in total tax revenues in the six countries included in this publication, and are typically higher as a percentage of GDP than in other economies. They ranged from 2.9% of GDP in Indonesia to 8.3% of GDP in Malaysia in 2014, compared to the OECD average of 2.8%. Trends in revenues from corporate income taxes have diverged across Asian countries since 2000. While most of the countries in this publication have increased revenues from corporate income taxes as percentages of GDP compared to the early 2000’s, Singapore and Indonesia saw decreases in corporate income tax revenues relative to GDP.
