The Revenue Statistics in Asian and Pacific Economies publication is jointly undertaken
by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre
with the co-operation of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Pacific Island Tax
Administrators Association (PITAA), and the Pacific Community (SPC) with the financial
support of the European Union and the Government of Japan. It compiles comparable
tax revenue statistics for Australia, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan,
Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Samoa, Singapore,
the Solomon Islands, Thailand and Tokelau and comparable non-tax revenue statistics
for the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, Samoa and Tokelau. The model is the OECD Revenue
Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established
methodology, for OECD member countries. Extending the OECD methodology to Asian and
Pacific economies enables comparisons of tax levels and tax structures on a consistent
basis, both among Asian and Pacific economies and with OECD, Latin American and Caribbean
and African averages.SPECIAL FEATURE: MANAGING TAXPAYERS' COMPLIANCE
