Exploring the VAT Digital Toolkits by OECD
The OECD Consumption Tax Unit, in partnership with the World Bank Group, has been publishing several VAT Digital Toolkits over the last few years. These comprehensive resources provide tax authorities in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia-Pacific with the necessary guidance to navigate the complexities of VAT collection in the digital era.
With the release of the French translation to the recent VAT Digital Toolkit for Africa, we decided to list these resources and encourage you to explore them and leverage the insights they offer.
