Coffee Break Compliance Broadcast Series | Episode Nine: Increasing Corporate Exposure to Tax Evasion Enforcement

January 06, 2021
A Global Broadcast Series Presented by Dechert

Dechert invites compliance professionals and in-house counsel to join us for a short break, over a coffee or lunch, to consider the emerging compliance trends in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As businesses globally are grappling with the complexities of a changing work environment and varying country safety requirements, our lawyers from around the world reflect on how these issues require companies to renew focus on compliance. This broadcast series will provide insight on several issues, such as actively considering Diversity and Inclusion within an effective compliance program, complying with cross-border tax and data transfer regulations, and handling internal and government investigations, including those relating to whistleblowers, tax evasion and employment issues.

Episode Nine: Increasing Corporate Exposure to Tax Evasion Enforcement

The first episode of 2021 provides an overview of UK corporate criminal offences relating to the facilitation of tax evasion, the enforcement trends emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the practical steps in-house legal and compliance professionals should consider to mitigate their organisations’ exposure to scrutiny. HMRC investigations appear to be gathering pace, and as revenue collection becomes a key government priority, we anticipate enhanced focus on the effectiveness of policies and procedures combatting tax evasion.
