    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.

    This course is intended for the officers of the Income Tax and VAT wings of the National Board of Revenue of Bangladesh (NBR). It will demonstrate to the participants the importance of a risk-based approach to compliance management and how this leads to efficiency improvements and resultant revenue gains with optimum utilization of resources. 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 compliance risk management and why is it important?
    - Identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks;
    - Mitigating risks through a compliance improvement program; and
    - Development by NBR of plans to implement a risk register and adopt risk differentiation.

    Discussions in the context of NBR and case studies will guide the participants to align the course learnings to the mission, vision, and values of NBR and to apply the risk treatment plans and strategies.
