As part of a series of 18 events organised across Europe, with the support of the European INBOTS project, on Friday 22 January 2021, Prof. Umut Turksen, Professor at Coventry University in the UK and Coordinator of the PROTAX project, presented in Spain the results of the PROTAX project and demonstrated the functioning of the tools that the project has developed so far. The workshop covered the following topics: risk assessment and tax fraud investigation framework, tax policy development and ideas to advance the fight against tax crime.

The EU-funded Horizon 2020 project PROTAX focuses on improving investigation and enforcement practices in relation to tax crime. PROTAX proposes EU-wide tools and recommendations, which integrate the knowledge and expertise of all parties involved in the prevention and investigation of tax crime.

The Workshop was an excellent opportunity to exchange learning between INBOTS and PROTAX members on the various dimensions of tax crime practices in Spain and the EU, and to think collectively about how to move forward in the fight against tax crime.
