Tax Administrations of the world meet to discuss access to information sources to improve compliance and prevent tax evasion

Thanks to the collaboration between the “International Tax Compact”, the World Bank, CIAT and the Guardia di Finanza of Italy, a workshop has taken place in Rome On October 2, 2015. Its main objective was to discuss methodologies for accessing information sources and its designing structures, with the aim of achieving higher levels of tax compliance and preventing tax evasion and tax fraud.

Representatives from the co-sponsoring institutions and 35 tax administrations from different continents have participated in the workshop.

The event featured four specific sessions, each one chaired by a co-sponsoring institution. They dealt with trends in the design of information systems, the exchange of information between tax authorities, with special focus on the automatic procedure, intelligence procedures based on open sources, and mechanisms for early detection of tax fraud.

As a conclusion, the attending tax administrations expressed their interest in using the most effective techniques for accessing information, primarily from non-traditional sources; and the need to implement more efficient techniques for information processing, avoiding keeping on file non-used information that generates compliance and administration costs.
