About this paper
Unlike other forms of tax evasion – such as the “hidden economy,” where lost tax revenue remains within the economy – VAT Carousel fraud is responsible for draining large sums of money out of a country. Setting up an early warning system for VAT Carousel fraud is critical, and a number of tax authorities have made early moves to address the problem. This paper outlines the critical success factors that SAS has identified by working with these pioneering tax authorities.
