Exploring Ways to Enhance Cooperation with Risk Management Platform

May 20, 2014


We attended the recent Plenary meeting of the Risk Management Platform which was established in 2007 under the Fiscalis Programme, with the purpose of providing a permanent communication and information exchange among risk management experts from all participating EU Member States.On the occasion, we explored possible ways of future co-opeartion with the Platform as the overarching theme of the CEF taxation learning program in 2014/2015 will continue to revolve around modern, risk-based approaches to tax compliance.

Experts in compliance risk management from EU Member States gathered to discuss better cooperation between Member States and to identify good practices in the area of risk analysis which would allow them to better target and fight tax fraud. An awareness of the challenges for tax administrations in an ever-changing world of globalisation and new information technologies has also been discussed. Participating countries shared their examples of new ways of working to improve taxpayer compliance.

Discussing common problems and identifying possible solutions along with exchange of best practices was recognized as a very useful way of strengthening co-operation between risk management experts representing tax administrations in the EU member states.

The Plenary meeting of the Risk Management Platform was held on May 13-14, 2014 in Edinburgh and was hosted in close co-operation with the European Commission by the HM Revenue and Customs.
