Although many factors impact on revenue growth, so forecasts are not available, past DFID tax programmes have proved to be great value for money. For example, the OECD’s Tax Inspectors Without Borders initiative, which assists developing countries to implement international tax standards, has generated an additional £100 for every £1 spent on operating costs.</p><p> </p> more like this
