International Tax Evasion in the Global Information Age

Author: David S. Kerzner,David W. Chodikoff

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) war on offshore tax evasion. The authors explain the new emerging regulatory regimes on the global exchange of information to combat offshore tax evasion and analyse why Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) is not a “magic bullet” solution. Chapters include coverage of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), AEOI and the Common Reporting Standards (CRS), and the unprecedented extra-territorial enforcement by the United States of its tax and reporting laws, including the FBAR provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act. These new legal regimes directly impact nearly all financial institutions and financial service providers in the U.S., U.K., EU, Canada, and each of the 132 member jurisdictions of the OECD’s Global Forum, as well as 8 million U.S. expats. In light of The Panama Papers, this book offers a timely and valuable contribution on the prevalence and costs of international tax evasion for the global financial community, policy-makers, and practitioners alike.

A jaw-dropping - and intimate - account by the woman who spent five years as the nation's watchdog of how much of the money needed for public services is misspent, while too many corporate giants get away without paying their fair share. As Chair of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee from 2010- 2015 Margaret Hodge has been both the scourge of waste and inefficiency by successive governments. At the same time she has helped to disclose the chicanery of companies out to avoid tax. Fearing a summons before the inquisitor-in-chief, mandarins and chief executives quaked. Called To Account takes readers on a fascinating journey inside the NHS, the BBC and defence as well as Amazon, Starbucks and G4S. And comes to radical conclusions about how things must be improved. Hodge scrutinises: The weakness of tax authorities in tracking down corporate tax and forcing companies to pay up Massive failures in public procurement - from committing billions to buy 2 new aircraft carriers when there was no money in the budget; to the absurdity that police forces could cut the costs of their uniforms by over 30% - if only they could agree on how many pockets they need; to a study of 61 hospital trusts which showed they bought 21 different types of A4 paper, 652 different styles of surgical gloves and 1751 different cannulas. The disastrous introduction of Universal Credit, at a cost of £700 million. How a £500 million project to centralise 999 calls had to be abandoned. How officials move seamlessly into well-paid jobs in the private sector while company directors are appointed into positions in government. After the referendum, UK government needs to be fitter than ever before. And needs to secure maximum revenues. This conversational, witty and engaging book shines a light on some of the most fascinating and alarming issues facing us today and shows us the way forward - with salient and pragmatic solutions for the future.

Bekämpfung von Steuerhinterziehung

Author: Nicolas Ramm


ISBN: 3863419820

Category: Law

Page: 80

View: 5304

Das Buch informiert über die verschiedenen staatlichen Möglichkeiten zur Bekämpfung von Steuerhinterziehung. Dabei werden die Maßnahmen aus rechtlicher Sicht dargestellt und deren jeweilige Handhabe aufgezeigt, sowie der Ablauf eines Steuerstrafverfahrens skizziert. Der Schaden, der dabei für den deutschen Staat entsteht, ist auf einen dreistelligen Milliarden Eurobetrag zu schätzen, konkrete Zahlen existieren hierzu allerdings nicht. Als Konsequenz aus dem Gerechtigkeitsgebot wird präventiv und repressiv agiert. Dabei sind als Steuerstraftäter, sowohl der kleine Privatmann, der vermögende Privatier, als auch das Großunternehmen präsent. Denn Steuerhinterziehung ist in jeder Bevölkerungsschicht vertreten. .Der Staat versucht diese durch die verschiedenen staatlichen Institutionen aktiv zu verhindern bzw. zu bestrafen. In Deutschland besteht eine ausgeprägte Kultur mit dem Hang zur Steuerhinterziehung. Eine Steuerstraftat wird als Kavaliersdelikt angesehen und führt, im Gegensatz zu anderen Straftaten, zu keiner gesellschaftlichen Ächtung. Als Folge der teilweise undurchschaubaren Steuergesetze, mit denen sich jede Einzelperson und jedes Unternehmen jährlich auseinandersetzen muss, besteht eine Steuerverdrossenheit. Diese Verdrossenheit wiederum führt zu einem Bestreben der Steuervermeidung. Das Werk führt zu Beginn allgemeine, rechtliche Begriffsbestimmungen an, um diese einheitlich in der gesamten Arbeit fortzuführen. Anhand eines praktischen Beispiels wird die Problematik der Steuerhinterziehung verdeutlicht. Ein weiterer Abschnitt führt etwaige Steuerhinterziehung begünstigende Tatbestände an, welche von praktischen Ausführungen begleitet werden. Im fünften Abschnitt werden die staatlichen Maßnahmen in einer Gesamtdarstellung präsentiert. Darauf folgt eine kurze Übersicht über den praktischen Verfahrensablauf innerhalb der involvierten, staatlichen Institutionen. Das letzte Kapitel zeigt die Möglichkeiten und Maßnahmen auf, um Steuerhinterziehung zu bekämpfen.
