The Global Forum delivers a seminar to assist Cambodia to fight tax evasion
14/12/2018 - The seminar, organised by the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes took place on 11-13 December 2018 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It has provided an opportunity for tax auditors to focus on the connection between the domestic tax investigation and information gathering framework and the international infrastructure for exchange of information. The aim is to introduce tax auditors to the exchange of information (EOI) infrastructure that has been developed over the last few years, comprising a vast treaty network (around 7000 new Double Tax Conventions, Tax information exchange agreements and other EOI relationships), competent authority structures and EOI facilitation tools.
Tax auditors were encouraged to make effective use of these EOI tools by increasing the number and quality of outgoing requests to their treaty partners. The seminar strengthened awareness among auditors that protection of domestic revenue is closely linked with the effective use of this EOI network. This programme is supported by a technical expert from the Asian Development Bank, with more than 75 participants from the Cambodia General Department of Taxation.
