The Revenue Statistics in Asian Countries publication is jointly undertaken by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre, with the co-operation of the Asian Development Bank and with the financial support of the European Union. It compiles comparable tax revenue statistics for Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore. The model is the OECD Revenue Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established methodology, for OECD member countries. Extending the OECD methodology to Asian countries enables comparisons about tax levels and tax structures on a consistent basis, both among Asian economies and between OECD and Asian economies.


SPECIAL FEATURE: Electronic services in tax administration

The level of tax revenues in an economy is influenced by tax policy and tax administration as well as the level of taxpayer compliance and government enforcement. Developments in information and communication technology (ICT) in recent decades, both for electronic filing and payment of taxes, have presented many opportunities for revenue bodies to increase government revenue, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of services delivered to taxpayers, while at the same time reducing taxpayer compliance burden and government administration costs, and improving enforcement.
