PwC publishes 'Worldwide tax summaries – Corporate taxes 2018/19’

28 September, 2018

In an increasingly complex and ever-changing international tax environment, having key tax information on 152 countries/regions at your fingertips is critical.

PwC has published its annual Worldwide Tax Summaries – Corporate Taxes 2018/19, its latest compilation of worldwide corporate tax rates and rules.  

As governments across the globe are looking for greater tax transparency and an increase in cross-border activities, tax professionals can use the guide to access the current tax rates and other major tax law features in a wide range of countries/regions.

This unique guide, freely accessible to all, is written by local PwC tax specialists and features summaries from 152 countries/regions, including Ireland, with over 2800 pages of data. It is available in three formats including a digital and mobile version. Last year’s guide had a record level of readership online with over 5m page views.  

Joe Tynan, Head of Tax, PwC Ireland, said: “Tax systems are evolving around the world at an unprecedented rate and are creating great uncertainty for businesses. Keeping up-to-date with all elements of tax compliance locally and internationally is critical. Having the most up-to-date information from our experts available in an accessible, mobile friendly way, is critical to the thousands of people and businesses using our summaries who are looking to make the right decisions.”

“Ireland provides a great location for investment as the only English speaking country in the EU with a common law jurisdiction post-Brexit having access to over 400 million customers.  And as a gateway to the EU, the US, Asia and further afield, having access to information about the relevant country tax systems in one place is critical.”
