OECD Publishes New Report on Technology Tools

The OECD published 'Technology Tools to Tackle Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud' report, which provides overview of the technology tools that tax authorities have implemented to address tax evasion and tax fraud.

Technology Tools Report 

The 'Technology Tools to Tackle Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud' report demonstrates how technology is currently being used by tax administrations in countries worldwide to prevent, identify and tackle tax evasion and tax fraud.  The report also includes a more technical catalogue of these technology solutions, with a view to encouraging other tax authorities that are facing the same types of risks to draw on that experience, the OECD informed.

Real And Readily-Applicable Examples

The report provides real and readily-applicable examples of best practices of 21 countries in the effective use of technology in the fight against tax crimes. For example,

  • in Rwanda, the introduction of point of sale technology to address electronic sales suppression resulted in a 20% increase in VAT collected on sales,
  • in the Canadian province of Quebec, similar technology was introduced in the restaurant sector, resulting in the recovery of approximately EUR 822 million in taxes, and
  • in Hungary, electronic cash registers increased VAT revenue by 15% in the concerned sectors.
