Concepts for digital transformation are being developed not only in Germany and the European Union, but also at the OECD level. The OECD is currently putting together a package of measures to support OECD members in this process. This is intended to improve not only efficiency within states, but also cooperation between national tax administrations. This “Tax Administration Action Plan 3.0” is overseen by the Forum on Tax Administration, which comprises 53 OECD and G20 countries.
Achim Pross is Head of the International Cooperation and Tax Administration Division of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration. He is responsible for the standard for the automatic exchange of information on financial accounts in tax matters (Common Reporting Standard, CRS), the OECD’s work on Pillar 1 and Pillar 2, many of the BEPS actions, and work on tax administration and tax security and combating tax and other financial crimes. He joined the OECD in 2001, following legal training and a doctorate in Munich as well as several years in a US tax firm.
