The finance ministry’s data shows

South Korea's corporate tax rates as of this year are the seventh highest among member states of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the finance ministry's data showed on Oct. 18, 2018.

A report from the ministry provided for a parliamentary audit, released by opposition lawmaker Shim Jae-chul, said South Korea's 25 percent corporate tax rate places the country at 7th among 36 OECD nations. It is higher than 20th in 2009, 19th in 2011, 17th in 2014 and 16th in 2016.

The data showed France (33.3 percent), Australia (30 percent), Mexico (30 percent), Belgium (29 percent), Greece (29 percent) and New Zealand (28 percent) had higher corporate tax rates than South Korea.

Among G7 countries, only France had higher rates than South Korea.

The average tax rate for OECD members was 21.5 percent, according to the data. (Yonhap)
