Australia’s framework questions for a possible digital tax

The   Australian Treasury released its digital economy tax discussion paper:
Comments are due 30 November 2018. The key substantive sections seem to be located in the Appendix, which sets out some of the items being considered in terms of potential unilateral “interim” measures pending broader OECD alignment – both digital advertising and online marketplace operators are mentioned as potential target taxpayers/services and a digital services tax or some similar type of tax on revenue is certainly being considered closely.

I started my career at the Hungarian Tax Authority in the last millenium at the dawn of the internet. Joined PwC in 1999 on top of the ebiz boom, when we thought online business will revolutionise the economy in 5 years. I specialized on VAT or more generally on indirect taxes. After several years spent in the Hungarian indirect tax practice, I moved to Zurich, Switzerland where I am working as a senior manager in the International VAT team and Network Driver for the Global Indirect Tax Network of PwC.
