Corporate & Indirect Tax Survey 2011 

The 2011 story of the world's corporate and indirect tax rates continues that of the one told in previous years. According to KPMG International's annual Corporate and Indirect Tax Survey, corporate tax rates have been steadily falling for a decade, while value added tax and goods and services tax (VAT/GST) systems have been introduced across the globe, rising to higher rates and applying to more items as indirect tax systems mature.

As in previous years, the survey compares corporate and indirect tax rates from over 125 countries.


According to the survey, the world's average corporate tax rate has fallen in each of the past 11 years, from 29.03 percent in 2000 to 22.96 percent in 2011. Average indirect tax rates at the global level have been stable, hovering at or near the 2011 average of 15.41 percent for the past three years.


We are also pleased to announce the availability of a new online tax rate tool.
