What is the Responsible Tax response to the global COVID-19 crisis? Who pays for the extraordinary measures now being taken – when and how?

Jericho Chambers has been convening and curating the global Responsible Tax project in partnership with KPMG since 2015. The current crisis adds poignancy and urgency.

On Tuesday 6 August the fifth roundtable in a series on potential tax policy responses coming out of COVID-19 was held. Sponsored by KPMG International and Jericho Chambers. Seventeen stakeholders from a wide spectrum of backgrounds attended the virtual event, which focused on what potential measures governments might take in order to increase tax revenues – in particular through taxing wealth, gifts or inheritances.

The full report from the roundtable is available here.
