Underreporting of business income and sales have been age-old problems for tax agencies around the world, and the digital economy increasingly exacerbates the issue by enabling complicated transactions and blurring the lines between the physical and digital worlds. SAS and IVIX have partnered together to address these compliance challenges head on, setting a bold goal of creating unprecedented economic transparency across the global economy. Leveraging cloud computing, advanced algorithms, and public data on the web, we shine a light on the shadow economy by providing tax agencies insight into business activity across various industry sectors.
