Managing the Shadow Economy in the Construction Sector

Workshop: November 19 – 21, 2019ILjubljana, SloveniaITax Policy and Administration

The workshop follows up recent CEF learning events that addressed the fight against the shadow economy. Recent changes in the way people work and business is done, the growth of the digital economy, wider social changes and globalization are causing the emergence of new shadow economy activities or the scaling up of existing ones. At the workshop, we will stress the importance of sharing intelligence, using different data sources, conducting collective action, reinforcing social norms, and applying a whole-of-government approach. The main aim is to point out the importance of multi-faceted strategies to fight shadow economy activities, and to showcase specific strategies for a specific sector, i.e. the construction sector.

Target audience: mid-to-senior level tax officials from risk management, audit, criminal tax investigation, analytic, anti-fraud and tax police departments; and representatives of tax policy divisions in finance ministries involved and/or experienced in fighting the shadow economy.
