Globally, tax authorities are raising more enquiries, collaborating more with each other through sharing data and information, joint audits and multi-country task forces, and through the advent of new and more stringent international tax rules, governing the taxation of multinational companies.  These factors are only set to increase in the post-pandemic landscape as governments around the world seek additional revenue sources to pay for COVID-19 support.
