Notes
  • This paper provides, for all OECD countries, an estimate of the net tax cost per currency unit of contribution to a tax-favoured retirement savings plan, using a present-value methodology. The latter takes into account the future flows of revenues foregone on accrued income and of revenues collected on benefit withdrawals corresponding to a unit contribution made in a given year. The net tax cost is first calculated for nine (five-year) age groups, which have different relative income levels and investment time horizons, and is then averaged across age groups. In order to take into consideration the relevant country-specific features of savings taxation, the paper also provides an overview of the tax treatment of private pension arrangements and alternative savings vehicles. The results indicate that the size of tax subsidy varies significantly across countries, ranging from nearly 40 cents per unit of contribution (Czech Republic) to around zero (Mexico, New Zealand).

Cette dernière prend en compte les pertes futures de recettes fiscales découlant de la nontaxation des revenus d’intérêt ainsi que des recettes encaissées au moment de la perception des bénéfices par les détenteurs du plan de retraite. Le coût fiscal net est calculé pour neuf groupe d’âge (de cinq ans chacun), disposant de niveaux de revenus et d’horizons d’investissement différents. Le coût par groupe d’âge est ensuite aggrégé pour obtenir un coût moyen pour l’ensemble de la population. Les résultats indiquent que la valeur de l’incitatif fiscal varie de façon significative à travers les pays, passant de 40 cents par unité de contribution (République Tchèque) à près de zéro (Mexique, Nouvelle-Zélande). Plus de la moitié de pays de l’OCDE encourt ...
