The long-term trend for countries to pursue a “low-rate, broad-base” business tax strategy continues in 2018, according to our eighth Global tax policy outlook.

However, many countries are now responding to the twin pressures of BEPS constraints and US international tax reform by either increasing existing business incentives or introducing entirely new incentives as a way to remain competitive.

At the same time, the tax scrutiny and enforcement environment continues to become more challenging, with over half of reporting countries forecasting a rising tax burden due to increased enforcement – particularly in the area of transfer pricing.
