The CPA Canada CTC has weighed in on the June 2012 OECD document, OECD International VAT/GST Guidelines Draft Commentary on International VAT Neutrality Guidelines. The aim of this discussion draft is to garner feedback on the guidelines the OECD has developed to assist governments with applying VAT/GST to cross-border trade, with a view to minimizing the potential for double or unintended non-taxation. In this October 3, 2012 letter, the CTC shares its insights and recommendations with the OECD on various aspects of the guidelines.
