Rates and rules from over 150 countries at a glance

TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - PwC has published its annual Worldwide Tax Summaries - Corporate Taxes 2016/17, its latest compilation of worldwide corporate tax rates and rules. 

As governments across the globe are looking for greater tax transparency and an increase in cross-border activities, tax professionals can use the guide to access the current tax rates and other major tax law features in a wide range of countries. The guide features recent changes in tax legislation and includes key information about corporate income taxes, deductions, group taxation, credits and incentives, withholding taxes, indirect taxes, and tax administration.

"Tax systems are evolving around the world all the time, and for business that means keeping up to date with all elements of tax compliance locally and internationally." said Colm Kelly, Global Tax and Legal Services Leader, PwC.  "Having the most up to date information from our experts available in an accessible way is critical to the thousands of people and businesses who use our summaries who are looking to make the right decisions."

The guide is written by local PwC tax specialists and features 155 country summaries with over 2000 pages of data covering countries from Albania to Zimbabwe. It is available in four formats including a digital and mobile version.
