that administer most or the majority of the central government revenues. The existence of a compliance risk register should be noted in the PEFA report narrative for this dimension.
19.2:3. Examples of the compliance risk observed among large payers include those associated with the transfer pricing and other profit-shifting arrangements of multinational enterprises operating in a given country while conducting extensive crossborder transactions. In resource-rich countries, companies involved in the extractive industries sector, given their size and function, typically belong in the large payer segment. Shifting profits through transfer pricing presents a major risk associated with the taxation of natural resource revenue. The report
should also identify any risk-mitigation measures applied by revenue authorities, such as audits, investigations, transfer pricing controls, and outreach activities and communication.
19.2:4. For this dimension ‘comprehensive’ refers to the coverage of all categories of revenue. A ‘structured and systematic approach’ means an approach which has clearly documented procedures and steps, is methodical and regularly repeatable. ‘Compliance risks’ relates to revenue that may be lost if payers fail to meet the four main revenue obligations areas, including: (i) registration; (ii) timely filing of declarations; (iii) payment of liabilities on time; and (iv) complete and accurate reporting of information in declarations.
Dimension 19.2. Scoring
|Score||Minimum requirements for scores|
|A||Entities collecting most revenues use a comprehensive, structured and systematic approach for assessing and prioritizing compliance risks for all categories of revenue and, as a minimum for their large and medium revenue payers.|
|B||Entities collecting the majority of revenues use a structured and systematic approach for assessing and prioritizing compliance risks for some categories of revenue and, as a minimum, for their large revenue payers.|
|C||Entities collecting the majority of revenues use approaches that are partly structured and systematic for assessing and prioritizing compliance risks for some revenue streams.|
|D||Performance is less than required for a C score.|
