Can Blockchain close the VAT gap?

Fraud contributes to around one third of VAT fraud in Europe, representing a loss of close to 50 billion euros. To tackle this challenge on a global scale, many tax authorities are requesting more detailed financial information from taxpayers, often in the form of core transactional data.

It’s also critical to stay up to speed on the technology-driven developments that could re-shape the tax landscape in the future – including the role that new technologies like Blockchain could play in reducing the VAT gap and fighting VAT fraud.
