A Europe-wide approach to combatting tax fraud and evasion

Tax fraud and tax evasion affects us all. Within the European Union, huge sums of revenue for public investment are being lost due to tax evasion and avoidance with estimates in the region of 1 trillion euros. Prof Sheila Killian of the Kemmy Business School talks about her research as part of the EU funded project called COFFERS - Combatting Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators. The team at the Kemmy Business School are focusing on the role of expert professional networks, tax advisers, wealth managers and the factors which can lead them to take ethical or aggressive approaches to their tax work.

In the latest podcast in the Research Impach podcast series, Principal Investigator on the project, Professor Sheila Killian joins us to discuss this issue. Prof Killian is the Assistant Dean Research and Director, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) at the Kemmy Business School, UL.
