?Trade in Counterfeit ICT Goods
English | 2017 | ISBN: 9264270825 | 92 Pages | PDF | 4.1 MB
Recent years have witnessed a constant rise in the spread of Ict (information and communication technologies) infrastructure and a growing demand for Ict goods. The production of these goods is knowledge intensive and the industry relies extensively on intellectual property (Ip) rights. This strong and growing demand for Ict goods, and their Ip dependence, makes them an attractive target for counterfeiters. This study looks at the trade in counterfeit Ict goods, including the size of the trade, the main sources of fake goods, and the countries whose companies are most affected.
?Taxing Wages 2017
English | 2017 | ISBN: 9264270760 | 584 Pages | PDF | 17.7 MB
This annual flagship publication provides details of taxes paid on wages in OECD countries. It covers personal income taxes and social security contributions paid by employees, social security contributions and payroll taxes paid by employers, and cash benefits received by in-work families. It illustrates how these taxes and benefits are calculated in each member country and examines how they impact household incomes. The results also enable quantitative cross-country comparisons of labour cost levels and the overall tax and benefit position of single persons and families on different levels of earnings. The publication shows average and marginal effective tax rates on labour costs for eight different household types, which vary by income level and household composition (single persons, single parents, one or two earner couples with or without children). The average tax rates measure the part of gross wage earnings or labour costs taken in tax and social security contributions, both before and after cash benefits, and the marginal tax rates the part of a small increase of gross earnings or labour costs that is paid in these levies.

Financial reporting is one of the foundations of good fiscal management. High-quality financial reports are essential to ensure that a government’s fiscal decisions are based on the most up-to-date and accurate understanding of its financial position. Financial reports are also the mechanism through which legislatures, auditors, and the public at large hold governments accountable for their financial performance. Over the past two decades, a growing number of governments have begun moving away from pure cash accounting toward accrual accounting to improve transparency and accountability and better inform fiscal decision making. This study reviews and compares accounting and budgeting practices at the national government level in OECD countries. It also discusses both the challenges and benefits of accruals reforms. Finally, it looks at some steps countries are taking to make better use of accrual information in the future. This is a joint publication with the International Federation of Accountants and the OECD.
