tax crime two years down the road


Tax Crime - Two years down the road

Tuesday 15 January 2019

We are pleased to announce you the first edition of Deloitte’s joint Conference with Legitech on Tax Crime – Two years down the road.


In line with the international context and evolution towards a more global tax transparency, the Law of 23 December 2016, which implemented the 2017 tax reform, aimed, among others, to extend the money laundering offence to tax crimes related to direct and indirect taxes. To this regard, The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (“CSSF”) in collaboration with the Cellule de Renseignement Financier (“CRF”), issued on 17 February 2017, the Circular 17/650 providing professionals with a dedicated framework and measures in connection with primary tax offenses. The Circular aims at enabling professionals to further (i) respect the principles of tax transparency as defined by the CSSF circular letter, dated 3 December 2012 and the CSSF Circular 15/609, dated 27 March 2015, and (ii) strengthen their diligence towards existing and new clients from a tax perspective.

Objectives of the conference

Two years have passed since the implementation of respective measures to strengthen the diligence process in connection with primary tax offenses. Accordingly, the purpose of the conference will be to share insights on:

  • legal and regulatory requirements with regards to tax crime;
  • the application of the most appropriate measures to detect potential tax crimes and engage in underlying reporting measure;
  • the market maturity, the expectations of relevant Authorities and the forthcoming visit of the Financial Action Task Force to Luxembourg;

through a Round Table with Market Leaders, the CSSF and the CRF.
