Abstract

This learning resource is the outcome of the Platform Seminar on Letterbox Companies which took place on November 30th, 2017 in Brussels. The aim of the Seminar was to facilitate understanding of the nature of fraudulent letterbox companies and their links to undeclared work. Discussions focussed on the challenges of identifying and tackling fraudulent letterbox companies. The event brought together Platform members, including representatives of national ministries, labour inspectorates, social security authorities, and tax authorities - as well as European-level social partners and international organisations. The Learning Resource not only reports on the seminar discussion but augments it by reporting subsequent analysis of a survey of members of the Expert Committee on Posting of Workers (ECPW) and representatives of Member State social partners.
