Tax & Legal Which tax authorities are leading in tracking tax leakages?

This image shows the degree to which tax authorities track tax leakages.

Tax authorities are looking into a variety of forensic accounting techniques to track tax leakages, where they are borrowing forensic techniques from other parts of law, like anti-trust, anti-corruption areas. A common platform like country-by-country reporting to tax authorities according to a global standard will – once being made public and applicable to a major group of MNEs – put a full transparency on such information/datasets. In addition, tax authorities are making the advisors to MNE their ‘partner in crime’, i.e. through a EU directive like DAC-6 they will have to report leakages to tax authorities with the risk of severe penalties when ignoring the mandatory reporting.
