Tax Avoidance – Evasion – Webinar
Whether stories in the Star based on Panama Papers revelations or statements in government budgets about using increased resources to recover personal and business taxes believed owed, the issues of the scope, causes and treatment of tax evasion and avoidance have been receiving significant attention. Governments tout the potential for large revenue recoveries. Individuals and companies face reputation, revenue and asset losses from the attention and management of the issues. CABE has approached a tax practitioner for a discussion of the picture from a professional’s perspective. We will talk about the legal implications of Panama papers and the importance of credible detection risk/severity of punishment for efficient deterrence and public confidence.
