Event Details


Financial liberalisation in the late 1970s and 80s greatly increased the opportunities for capital flight and tax evasion. It led to a rapid growth in the volume of personal assets held offshore and largely untaxed and stimulated a massive increase in the volume of cross-border trade routed via tax havens for tax minimisation purposes. Despite the plethora of international initiatives ostensibly targeted against the use of tax havens, almost all expert opinion agrees that the scale of activities conducted through tax havens and offshore financial centres continues to grow.


The seminar looks at the insights of tax fraud, evasion, and avoidance. The harmful tax practices, the flight capital and transfer pricing have been recognized as having an even greater damaging impact on the global financial system and as a major impediment for countries to sustain their tax base, and in particular for developing countries to sustain their own development.


Tax evasion is an illegal act that encompasses any activity designed to deceive or cheat tax authorities. In some jurisdictions it is also an offense for corporates to fail to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion by its representatives, customers, and connected parties.


Tax evasion incurs costs for governments and tax authorities as they aim to recover lost funds and bring about legal proceedings against offenders. However, the lost revenue caused by tax evasion and other aggressive forms of tax avoidance also impacts the ability of governments to provide essential public services—such as health or education—to their citizens. International governments and organizations have demonstrated a renewed focus on the prevention of tax evasion through increasing numbers of enforcement actions and the development of key legislation in some jurisdictions.


The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the regulations governing the tax matters and discuss in depth the tax evasion and fraud practices demonstrating ways of how to eliminate such acts.
