The Global Forum is currently the most important international platform in the field of taxation, the activity of which being focused on the implementation of the two globally agreed standards on tax transparency, namely the exchange of information on request and the automatic exchange of financial accounts information. Thus, through its monitoring and evaluation activities, the Global Forum ensures that these high standards of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes are applied worldwide, especially in those 161 member jurisdictions.
