Corporate Taxes

Corporate tax codes in any country should incentivize investment in the economy and job creation.

Our position

Tax codes, particularly between countries, should be coordinated to have neither loopholes that permit artificially lower tax rates, nor overlaps that cause higher tax rates or redundant taxation. Both distort company behavior in ways that don't benefit consumers or the economy.

We support the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and its work with global governments to review the international tax system and secure consensus on these points.
