The G20 on information exchange

Posted on

The G20 communique is weak.

This is the best bit as far as I'm concerned:

We underline the importance of comprehensive tax information exchange and encourage work in the Global Forum to define the means to improve it.

But since they're asking the OECD to do this and they are not committed to automatic information exchange which is the only way in which such exchange can be comprehensive I have little hope.
