SAMIFIN: 82% of the studied cases involve tax evasion
"82% of the cases that the Financial Intelligence Service, SAMIFIN, deals with involve tax evasion." This statement is that of Jean-Claude Razaranaina, CEO of SAMIFIN, when he met with tax officials led by Armand Tazafy, General Manager of tax administration, yesterday at Tsimbazaza.
Widespread tax evasion urges the tax authority and SAMIFIN to work together in order to provide many officials of the Directorate General of Taxes (DGI) with trainings focusing on the fight against money laundering. This training is the beginning of a close collaboration between the DGI and SAMIFIN, a collaboration that is expected to be sustainable given the importance of this fight against money laundering and the harmful effects of tax evasion on the economy of Madagascar.
But both institutions recognize that this fight against tax evasion and money laundering is a long and difficult mission that requires a great deal of perseverance for even the so-called developed countries face enormous difficulties in obtaining meaningful results in their fight against money laundering. But first, it was suggested to be necessary to have the working document prepared by the OECD in 2009 entitled: "Awareness-raising Handbook on money laundering designed for tax auditors."
