Offshoring And Tax Rates

6 April 2004

”Although the survey captures an interesting snap shot of global tax rates, it must be remembered that a low tax rate does not necessarily signify a low tax burden. Consequently, one must consider a particular nations tax base to properly gauge the tax burdens.”
