Senior officials from more than 20 countries met in London on 10-11 March 2011 to discuss disclosure initiatives and other recent developments in the area of anti-avoidance. Mr David Gauke MP, UK Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and Mr. Jeffrey Owens, Director of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration commented on this event.

The 2011 OECD report „Tackling Aggressive Tax Planning through Improved Transparency and Disclosure” recommends that countries concerned with aggressive tax planning review their disclosure initiatives with a view to evaluating the introduction of those best suited to their particular needs and circumstances. They should also “continue to share experiences on the design and implementation of disclosure initiatives to assist in creating a compliance framework that benefits both governments and taxpayers at large”.
