Projet: 
Institutional Strengthening for Tax and Customs Administration
Pays: 
Latvia
Domaine d'expertise: 

Legal

Description: 

Key elements are:

  • Development of the legal and technical basis for exchange of information about tax and customs administration:
  • Development of IT systems and databases for tax and customs information. Identification of software platforms:
  • Preparation of tender documentation and supervision of procurement of consultants and goods according to EU procurement procedures; and
  • Training in, and elaboration of, operating procedures and technical documentation.

Implementation of the acquis communitaire for tax and customs matters is a key issue in the accession of Latvia to the European Union. The key issues outstanding for Latvia with respect to implementation of the acquis communitaire for tax and customs are issues related to administrative capacity, IT connectivity and the exchange of information. For example, in order for the Internal Market to function properly without fiscal frontiers, Latvia must have IT systems compatible with the EU systems in place prior to accession. This project addresses these challenges.

Specific activities include:

  • developing legislative proposals for mutual assistance and information exchange; developing documentation for EU systems information sub-system of SRS Data Warehouse;
  • developing standards for electronic data exchange with tax administrations of EU member states;
  • developing documentation for the SRS IT systems relevant to EU IT systems (VIES, SEED and AFIS) using CCN/CSI and integration with existing SRS IT systems;
  • developing Central Liason Office and training of officials; organization of study visits; and organization of training seminars on data warehousing applications and use.
