Today the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations (UN), and the World Bank Group (WBG) released a concept note providing the details of their joint effort to intensify their cooperation on tax issues.  The concept note indicates that the organizations propose to create a new “Platform for Collaboration on Tax” as a central vehicle for their enhanced cooperation, thus enabling them to “develop a common approach, deliver joint outputs, and respond to requests for global dialogue on tax matters.”  

One of the platform’s first tasks will be to deliver a number of “toolkits” designed to help developing countries implement the measures developed under the G20/OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project and on other international tax issues.
