Document on Tax Policy Design for Banks that can be used by IBFED members for in country discussions, as appropriate. The document reflects the view on appropriate tax policy design for global banks, commenting upon the OECD Tax Policy Principles applicable for banks. We argue that tax policy should not discriminate between taxpayers, or industry groups (eg bank levies or surcharges and that banks should not automatically be seen a collection mechanisms).

It will be shared with the OECD during our upcoming meetings in March 2018.
