Financial crime is one of the greatest threats to the economic and social well‑being of people living in all countries. Illicit financial activities such as tax evasion, corruption, terrorist financing, computer fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes are a global problem demanding a global response.

4th OECD Forum on Tax and Crime

Amsterdam, The Netherlands • 16-17 September 2015

The 4th Forum, hosted by the Netherlands Tax and Customs Administration, will primarily focus on the future threats and opportunities for law enforcement agencies to work together in the tax and crime area and the use of technology. Experts will discuss topics that are currently high on the political agenda, such as corruption, terrorist financing, alternative payment methods, the dark web, the use of analytics and exploring emerging tax evasion risks in an era of greater transparency. 

It will bring together senior policy makers and experts from different disciplines and authorities, including tax and customs administrations, anti-corruption and anti-money laundering authorities, police and law enforcement agencies, public prosecutors, development agencies and international organisations, who together share responsibility for combating financial crime in all its forms. This is the ideal opportunity for participants to discuss with their peers the strategic, organisational and operational aspects of implementing a whole of government approach to tackling serious financial crime at both the national and international level.
