Hence, this paper aims to provide an overview and critical analysis of the digital approaches taken globally to curb offshore tax evasion strategies used by individual and multinational corporations. This paper employs library-based doctrinal study and comparative legal analysis in a descriptive, analytic provision, and prescriptive manner.
