Aims and objectives
Identifying and mobilizing stakeholders in national tax and customs administrations, FIUs, other law enforcement agencies and private sector
Setting out a policy relevant research agenda
Drafting model national tax legislation and international tax agreements with an aim of strengthening country specific anti-avoidance rules and improving the effectiveness of the tax administrations to get access to information on assets held offshore
Building up institutional capacity in African countries and ensuring sustainability by creating a network of “ambassadors“ of key institutions in Africa who will be able to disseminate and promote the acquired knowledge on the role of tax authorities in detection of the corruption practices
The expected outcomes from the program are a series of manuals, best practice recommendations and guidelines to counter more effectively IFF.
“This is an exciting initiative, one that can make a difference in Africa, but one which will require high level political commitment on the part of governments and a willingness to cooperate on the part of business.”
