A Global Comparison of Corporate Tax Systems

Price Waterhouse Coopers ranked 181 countries on a number of characteristics related to corporate taxes. Believe it or not, the U.S. ranked 46th on ease of payments. What we need now is a study on personal taxes.

From About the Study

Paying Taxes provides a comparison of the world’s tax systems from the point of view of a case study company. The aim is to provide insights and data, which will assist the process of tax reform and to gain a more in-depth understanding of the results. It is also important to look beyond the rankings to the underlying data. As well as the individual rankings on the ease of paying taxes around the world. The Paying Taxes study highlights how businesses are affected not only by corporate income taxes, but also by many other taxes. In addition, it shows how the procedural burden of tax compliance impacts companies.
