Professor Ryuta Takaku studies international tax avoidance at the Keio University Faculty of Business and Commerce. International tax avoidance exploits differences between countries’ tax regimes and tax treaties to evade tax in a way that crosses national borders. A concern is that this can greatly reduce national income and disproportionately lure capital into tax havens. Fraught with gray areas that blur the line between the legal and illegal, this activity can also spark tension between tax authorities and companies active in the global economy.
