OECD appoints new tax head: Roadmap includes leading two-pillar solution for tax in digital economy

Must read

MUMBAI: Manal Corwin has been appointed to serve as the next Director of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration beginning April 3, 2023.
Corwin will lead the work of the Centre across all areas, including the two-pillar solution to the tax challenges of digitalisation, the Base Erosion and Profit-Shifting (BEPS) Project, the tax transparency agenda, and the Centre’s participation in the OECD’s new Inclusive Forum on carbon mitigation approaches.
Currently, she serves as Partner-in-charge of the National Tax Office and Lead Director of the Board of Directors for KPMG in the United States. In the past, she has served twice in the Office of Tax Policy in the US Department of Treasury including serving as Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Tax Affairs, during which time she played a key role in launching the BEPS initiative, drove development of the international standard for automatic exchange of financial account information, and served as head of the US delegation for multiple tax treaty negotiations. During her time as a delegate to the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs, Corwin also participated in the consideration of numerous other policy initiatives including the Protocol amending the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters, the Forum on Harmful Tax Practices, the Report on the Transfer Pricing Aspects of Business Restructurings, and the launch of the work to address aggressive tax planning.
An American national, Corwin has a Bachelor of Arts (cum laude) from Harvard University and a Juris Doctor (magna cum laude) from Boston University School of Law. The appointment of Manal Corwin takes into account the highly specialised expertise and knowledge needed for this position and will ensure the seamless and successful continuation of the Centre’s critically important work following the recent departure of Pascal Saint-Amans as Director of Centre after 12 years in the role and the statutory retirement of former Deputy Director and current Director of the Centre, Grace Perez-Navarro on March 31, stated OECD in its release.
The seamless continuation of the Centre’s important work will also be supported by the appointment of David Bradbury, an Australian national, and Achim Pross, a German and British national, as Deputy Directors of the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration. OECD has also appointed Clare Lombardelli as chief economist, starting May 2.
