    Course Description

    Compliance Risk Management is recognized as a key component of effective tax administration. Ideally, tax administrations would like to achieve 100 percent compliance to achieve expected revenue goals. But the actions of taxpayers, because of ignorance, recklessness, or a deliberate intent to evade, as well as weaknesses of the tax administration, mean that failure to comply is inevitable. Therefore, tax administrations strive to build systems and devise strategies to keep non-compliance to a minimum. The course will demonstrate the importance of a risk-based approach to compliance management and how this leads to effective revenue administration. It will cover theoretical concepts for a systematic approach and then follow these with practical examples. The course will cover the following main topics: What is risk management and why is risk-based management important? Identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks; Mitigating risks through a compliance improvement program; and Development by each administration of plans to implement a risk register and adopt risk differentiation.Discussions and case studies will guide the participants to align the course learnings to the mission, vision and values of their country revenue administrations and to apply the risk treatment plans and strategies for practical compliance work upon return to their administrations.
