Illicit Trade Monitor

Illicit Trade

Illicit trade not only reduces turnover for honest operators and local producers, they also cause significant revenue losses for fiscal administrations. Failure to declare imported goods and local production undermine a government’s ability to invest in social services, infrastructures, schools and public health programmes. 

Being able to enforce tax policies and to detect non-compliance and fraud is crucial, especially in countries whose government budgets rely heavily on the collection of indirect taxes.
