Why is it important?

Collaboration between European countries is currently partial and very limited when tackling undeclared work. To more effectively collaborate, the consensus amongst the participating stakeholders is that an inclusive network of experts covering the tax, social security and labour aspects of undeclared work needs to be developed which engages in information sharing, capacity building and operational cooperation not only on the issue of cross-border undeclared work but also combating undeclared work at the national level.


This is the first evaluation of cross-national collaboration in relation to tackling undeclared work in Europe.
