; posted on
July 3rd, 2018

The leaders of tax enforcement bodies of Canada, the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia has allied to launch the Joint Chiefs of Global Tax Enforcement (J5). It’s a new alliance dedicated to tackling international tax crime and money laundering.

The Joint Chiefs of Global Tax Enforcement

The J5 has formed in response to a call to action from the OECD for countries to do more to tackle the enablers of tax crime. It will build on existing international cooperation by sharing intelligence and expertise, and will work together on joint operations to crack down on those who make a living out of enabling tax crime. Membership of the J5 includes the heads of tax crime and senior officials from The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) and Australian Taxation Office (ATO), the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the Dutch Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD), HMRC, and Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI).

Future Work

In order to actively bring about change, the J5 will:

  • Develop shared strategies to gather information and intelligence that will strengthen operational cooperation in matters of mutual interest, and target those who seek to commit transnational tax crime, cybercrime and launder the proceeds of crime.
  • Drive strategies and procedures to conduct joint investigations and disrupt the activity of those who commit transnational tax crime, cybercrime, and also those who enable and assist money laundering.
  • Collaborate on effective communications that reinforce that J5 is working together to tackle transnational tax crime, cybercrime and money laundering.
