During the Covid-19 pandemic, the growth of e-commerce and the usage of digital platforms have increased substantially. This appears to have also resulted in the growth of online fraud. It is obvious that digitalization has revealed some new vulnerabilities of tax systems, but at the same time, it is offering cost-effective technologies and tools for preventing, detecting, and suppressing such fraud irregularities.
Participants will discuss the complex nature of fraud and the need for changes that the digital era requires. They will debate particular types of tax evasion: underreporting of income through electronic sales suppression and over-reporting of deductions through false invoicing. Moreover, they will try to identify digital tools and technologies, which could substantially contribute to more effective processes of preventing, detecting, and managing tax fraud.
As countries are taking different approaches to combat fraud, participants will be encouraged to share experiences and learn from each other.
This initiative also aims at strengthening the exchange of information and cooperation among officials.
