According to ADB website, the TA will strengthen the capacity of tax authorities in target countries to collect tax by (i) broadening and protecting domestic tax base by implementing the BEPS report recommendations, (ii) improving domestic tax compliance through efficient and transparent tax administration, enhanced exchange of information, and improved risk management practices; and (iii) improving tools and procedures to stem both cross-border and domestic tax evasion and avoidance. Based on ADB documents, the TA has "B" category and safeguard categorization is not applicable.
The impact will be increased sustainable tax revenue for development financing in support of the ATI. The outcome will be enhanced capacity of national tax administrations to increase resource mobilization in target DMCs

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
