A combination of both persuasive and enforcement measures have been applied by governments in attempting to tackle tax non-compliance. With increasing pressure to raise revenue in the current economic climate, governments need to assess the effectiveness of various compliance measures. This paper presents and analyses the strategies adopted by tax authorities globally and specifically in Australia and Norway, regarding the public disclosure of tax information and the likely compliance impact. The paper provides an insight into how public disclosure could indirectly improve compliance in the setting of one country, while some limited disclosure may supplement other compliance strategies in another.
