Exit Strategy to Ease or Eliminate Tax Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Publication | April 2021

This brief examines tax stimuli applied by Asia and the Pacific countries to address the economic impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and provides guidance on how these can be appropriately exited.

Tax stimuli in the region were designed to pull economies out of the pandemic-induced recession. Using illustrative cases, the brief examines tax stimuli and estimates overall tax losses and losses attributable to tax measures, along with the risks associated with such measures. It provides guidelines on an appropriate strategy between a staggered or simultaneous exit and offers recommendations on specific tax measures for exit processes and the post-exit stage.
