What is Total Tax Contribution?

PwCs’ Total Tax Contribution is a framework for measuring an organisation’s economic contribution in taxes – the direct and indirect taxes paid by a company, as well as those it collects on behalf of the government.

Importantly, the framework makes it easier for companies to collect and report total tax information in a consistent manner, to meet the needs of stakeholders and improve transparency.
The PwC Total Tax Contribution framework focuses on three areas that represent a company’s overall taxation contribution. These are:

  • Business Taxes Borne by the business – taxes that impact the Profit and Loss Account;
  • Business Taxes Collected – from customers and employees that are then remitted to Government; and
  • Tax Compliance Costs – incurred in assessing and remitting Taxes Borne and Taxes Collected.
