Choosing e-Services: How to Encourage Customers Use Digital Services

With the growth in technology capabilities and demands for improved performance, tax administrations are encouraged to intensify their efforts to shift customers from traditional channels to more efficient e-channels, e-services and e-filing.

Measurement of Tax Compliance and the Implications for Strategic Planning (joint IOTA-OECD event)

The proposed event will build on recent work of OECD FTA on developing a framework for measuring the outcomes of compliance strategies. In addition, the IOTA-OECD workshop will also address the implications of compliance measurement to strategic planning. This workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to discuss practical approaches and acquire an overview of current thinking about performance management, taxpayer segmentation in tax compliance and collect some good ideas for practical application in their own countries.

In 2011 IOTA published the report on cloud computing prepared by the Task Team “E-Commerce” of the Area Group “Prevention and Detection of VAT Fraud”.


Use of Analytics to Tackle Non-Compliance and Fraud

As a part of the risk management approach, analytics is being used to predict and analyse areas of risk and to detect emerging patterns of specific non-compliant behaviours, thus allowing tax administrations to better allocate resources to support a wide range of compliance and intelligence activities.
