the Talk about tax policy holds never. There are always supporters and opponents of the established system, and the balance of their opinions depends largely on the future fiscal policy of particular States. The Association of chartered certified accountants (ACCA) and the international Federation of accountants (IFAC) conducted a survey of 7.6 thousand citizens of the G20 countries to ascertain their attitude to the existing tax policy. The study involved men and women over the age of fiscal responsibility, they have different income and ethnicity. In the G20 includes 19 leading countries and the European Union.

However, respondents also admitted that there are barriers that complicate the concept of international partnerships. The most acute problems of steel double taxation, the impact of exchange rates on taxable income, harmonization of measures on struggle against concealment of taxes.

Quote 3. Is it fair to tax payments?

Effective tax system is formed not only numbers, but also sentiment. Ultimately, it is ordinary people who determine the direction of future reforms. From the survey results it is clear that most of the countries "big twenty" is ready to change. The question is, will they be able to come to consensus.
