Global Tax Outlook 2023

Global Tax Outlook 2023

The Global Tax Outlook is BDO’s international research programme on Tax. It highlights the most common issues business leaders are grappling with in Tax, today and in the future.

Spanning almost fifty countries from across all regions of the globe (EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific) and reflecting the views of over 630 decision-makers from the Tax functions of international businesses, Global Tax Outlook brings together views from across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well from Asia, the Pacific regions, and other parts of the American continents.

Produced in conjunction with research organisation Meridian West and drawing on the knowledge and insights of BDO experts around the globe, Global Tax Outlook 2023 reveals some clear trends, threats, and opportunities, that are emerging in the Tax world. 

Taxation has, and will continue to, play a central role in meeting these economic challenges. It is no surprise that Tax policy continues to evolve at a rapid pace around the world, bringing more complexity and a heavier compliance burden alongside steadily rising effective rates of tax. The Tax function, therefore, must sit at the centre of an organisation’s strategic decision-making.

Our research demonstrates five key challenges being faced by Tax leaders today, and outlines our three core responses to these challenges to help the Tax function remain a strategic part of the business, whilst adapting to this changing landscape.
