The global financial crisis has had far-reaching implications for governments throughout the world. Significant costs both in terms of decreased tax revenue, and financial resources expended in the “bailing out” of financial institutions and engagement in quantitative-easing, have encouraged revenue authorities to turn ever-more attention towards maintenance of the tax base. A belief of many lawmakers that citizens are hiding assets in other jurisdictions, and therefore depriving their home countries of much-needed revenue, has led to a strong political and popular desire to ensure that everyone pays their fair share. Sharing of information between tax authorities is considered necessary to achieve this.
