The newly unveiled case studies, which include one from Brazil, two from Russia, two from India, three from China and one from South Africa, cover a range of topics such as tax debt management, contactless tax administration, personal income tax administration and taxpayer education, among others.

Initiated by the State Taxation Administration (STA), the case studies aim to share with the world the achievements of tax administration in the BRICS countries, promote mutual communication, and provide reference for tax authorities of other developing countries.

Wang Jun, head of the STA, called on tax authorities of the BRICS countries to strengthen cooperation on the digital transformation of tax administration and enhance tax data sharing.

Efforts should also be made to share experience on leveraging tax measures to boost economic development, establish working mechanisms on facilitating trade and investment, and jointly build a fair and effective international tax system, Wang said.
