International collaboration

Information received from our treaty partners can often provide additional evidence or confirm investigations into a taxpayer's affairs which can lead to a tax liability being raised.

The information below represents the tax liabilities (including penalties and interest) raised as a direct result of our exchange of information activity with our treaty partners.

The total liabilities raised (primarily as a result of our compliance investigations) that can be attributed to exchange of information activity in 2012–13 was around $473 million. Exchange of information cases with treaty partners contributed to around $480 million of adjusted tax, penalties and interest.
