Interconnected Global Tax Economy

In today's interconnected global tax economy, the digitalization of business processes and the pervasive influence of digital technologies have transformed the way companies operate. The digital economy, or web economy, extends its reach far beyond traditional revenue models, impacting products, services, and economic activities across the globe. As businesses adapt to this new era, governments worldwide have been faced with the challenge of efficiently taxing these new business models.

The digital economy extends the need for governments to adapt their tax systems to the realities of the digital age. The rise of the digital economy reflects how much economic activity digital technology products and services provide and has blurred traditional boundaries and the nature of how traditional companies and business leaders operate and serve their customers, making it crucial to establish a fair and effective framework for taxing digital businesses whilst maintaining economic value. One of the key initiatives in this regard is Pillar One, aimed at addressing global economy tax challenges posed by the digitalized worldwide economy.
