The Global Forum assists tax auditors in South America to combat offshore tax evasion
28/11/2017 - The Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes is delivering a three-day seminar on “Exchange of Information as a Tool to Combat Offshore Tax Evasion” in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 27-29 November 2017. The seminar which is attended by 50 participants is organised in co-operation with the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank Group.
This seminar focuses on the connection between the domestic tax investigations, the domestic information gathering framework and the international infrastructure for exchange of information (“EOI”). Participants are being introduced to key concepts of transparency and exchange of information (EOI) as assimilated into the international standards: EOI on request, automatic EOI, confidentiality of data and beneficial ownership. Through a series of hands-on workshop exercises which consist of a mixture of presentations, open discussions and case studies, participants are being familiarised with the use of EOI networks and structures to improve the quality of tax audits and to combat transnational tax evasion.
Tax auditors are encouraged to make effective use of these EOI tools by increasing the number and quality of outgoing requests to their treaty partners. The seminar is strengthening awareness among participants that protection of domestic revenue is closely linked with the effective use of this EOI network.
