Presentation of the Digital Economy Compliance (DEC) tool

Organised by ATI Consultative Group 1


On behalf of ATI Consultative Group 1, the ATI Secretariat cordially invites you to participate in an upcoming webinar presentation of the Digital Economy Compliance Tool (DEC).

Designed by the Inter-American Center of Tax Administration (CIAT) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), the DEC Tool was developed to facilitate the taxation of companies operating in the digital space. It harnesses the potential of indirect taxation of digital transactions as a source for additional revenues in times of crisis while offering a simplified voluntary mechanism of registration, declaration, payment and communication for companies. The presentation will be accompanied by inputs on the potential of indirect taxes in the digital economy for partner countries and a discussion on international guidelines in this area.
