Purpose of the classification

The TC is used to classify in detail all transactions which have been classified by the ETF as revenue. It therefore provides a supplementary dissection of these transactions according to the type of tax revenue collected by governments.

Structure of the classification

The TC has a hierarchical structure consisting of Groups, Subgroups and Classes. The Groups represent the 'base’ upon which taxes are levied, following substantially the OECD tax classification. The groups are:

      • Taxes on income, profits and capital gains;
      • Taxes on employers' payrolls and labour force;
      • Taxes on property;
      • Taxes on provision of goods and services; and
      • Taxes on use of goods and performance of activities.
