This virtual workshop is organised by the Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) Secretariat in partnership with the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF) and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF). It will bring together senior-level officials and experts from international organisations and tax administrations to discuss the international tax and transfer pricing risks in the extractive industry value chain, as well as the challenges for host administrations.


For many developing countries, revenues from the mining sector present a significant opportunity to grow the economy and fund vital public services. Ensuring governments have innovative fiscal measures and the knowledge, skills and tools to build and administer mining tax systems is, therefore, critically important.  


The extractive sector has the potential to transfer real economic wealth to local communities. The magnitude of the sector cannot be understated, accounting for more than 20% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 41 developing countries, and more than 10% of GDP for a further 13 developing countries in 2019. Undertaking tax compliance initiatives and setting appropriate tax policies in the extractives resources sector requires a combination of industry, tax policy and tax compliance knowledge.  


To discuss BEPS challenges and best practices in the extractive sector, TIWB is holding a two-day virtual workshop, organised in collaboration with ATAF and IGF. The workshop will take place on 26 July 2023 from 13:00 to 16:30 CEST and 27 July 2023 from 13:00 – 17:00 CEST via videoconference on Zoom.


Open to tax officials and TIWB partners, participants are required to register by or before Friday, 21 July 2023.
