About PROTAX

Objectives

Researchers, law enforcement agencies and national tax authorities from several EU countries have joined this three-year project to harmonise the treatment of tax crime and enhance information sharing across different European jurisdictions.

The research will:

  • Assess practices in the participating countries
  • Identify any gaps in processes
  • Address the challenges of sharing information and best practice
  • Consider social and ethical implications, such as personal privacy
  • Create policy guidelines and toolkits to encourage behaviour change

Impact

The project aims to harmonise the treatment of tax crime across the EU and enhance information sharing between EU countries. Helping to tackle tax crime will return vital funds to public services, increasing prosperity and reducing social inequalities.
