It's not often that something you have been thinking about and been working on for about 18 months comes to fruition. Yesterday was one of those days. Readers will be aware that, alongside Harriet Brown of Old Square Tax Chambers in London, I have been presenting an international tax podcast known as International Tax Bites for the last 3 years. We are now on our 57th full episode and it never ceases to amaze me that we have kept going and are producing content I am very proud of.
Yesterday we released the first two episodes in a mini-series of episodes known as “Designing the Perfect International Tax System” a ten episode epic which will feature some of the most influential figures in tax at the current time. We believe that this ambitious project is the only one of its kind and demonstrates that podcasts are a serious medium.
We have released a general introduction to the mini-series (which you can find here) and our first episode proper - an interview with nationally and internationally known tax personality, investigative journalist Dan Neidle in which we discuss why we need an international tax system at all.
I would encourage anyone who works in tax, or is interested in why tax is the way it is, to listen. The series features some great minds, such as Thornton Matheson from the IMF, Carlos Protto of the UN Committee of Experts on tax Cooperation and many more. If we learn how the design of taxation system works and what the inputs are we will understand those systems themselves on a level we had not before.

The lack of success in providing a global consensus-based solution would give place to the proliferation of unilateral uncoordinated measures leading to inconsistency in the international tax system, uncertainty and presumably chaos, with its inevitably undesired impact on investment, trade and economic growth, that all jurisdiction would suffer from.
