Revenue Statistics in Asian and Pacific Economies

This annual statistical publication is jointly produced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTP) and the OECD Development Centre (DEV) with the co-operation of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Pacific Island Tax Administrators Association (PITAA), and the Pacific Community (SPC) and financial support from the governments of Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It presents detailed, internationally comparable data on tax revenues for 21 Asian and Pacific economies: Australia, Bhutan, People’s Republic of China, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nauru, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, the Solomon Islands, Thailand, Tokelau and Vanuatu. It also provides information on non-tax revenues for Bhutan, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Samoa, Thailand, Tokelau and Vanuatu. The OECD average used in this database is taken from the publication Revenue Statistics 2019 which was published before Colombia became a member of the OECD on 28 April 2020 and therefore does not include Colombia. Revenue Statistics in Asian and Pacific Economies’ approach is based on the well-established methodology of the OECD Revenue Statistics database, which is an essential reference source for OECD member countries. Comparisons are also made with the average tax indicators for OECD economies. Comparable tables show total tax revenue data and by tax as a percentage of GDP, and, for the different types of taxes, as a share of total taxation. Detailed country tables show information in national currency values.

Sub-national tax revenues are attributed according to government tax regulations. Small portions of the Business Tax and Urban Maintenance and Construction Tax revenues, which came from specifically railway companies, as well as headquarters of banks and insurance companies, were collected and retained by the central government and should be recorded as central government revenues. However, they cannot be separated from local tax revenues due to data availability.

A small portion of the Resources Tax revenues, which came from specifically offshore oil and gas resources, were collected and retained by the central government and should be recorded as central government revenues. However, they cannot be separated from local tax revenues due to data availability.

Heading 2000: Detailed data on revenues from social security contributions were not available.
