Submission on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) to the Davis Tax Committee

Following the formation of the Davis Tax Committee, sub-committees were established to focus on specific tax-related issues, according to the terms of reference (attached). CSO’s are instrumental in policy processes and therefore, we have undertaken to tackle particular issues under the sub-committees of base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) and mining extractives and tax, respectively, in order to produce two respective submissions to these sub-committees. The purpose of this meeting was to provide recommendations for the sub-committees from a CSO perspective. This was further highlighted by presentations from Savior Mwamba (TJN-A) and Thembinkosi Dlamini (Oxfam GB).
