Case Study: Using accredited certification to reduce the tax evasion

Using accredited certification to reduce the tax evasion

All taxis in Sweden must be linked to a reporting centre to start transferring data from each vehicle’s taximeter equipment (wireless and digitally) to provide details of distances travelled. The Swedish Transport Agency that is responsible for the registry of the accounting centres, has introduced this policy to reduce tax fraud and to remove the number of rogue taxi operators. In order to provide confidence in the system, the reporting centres must ensure that their equipment is certified by an accredited certification body.
