    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperOther research output

    Abstract

    This background paper defines letterbox companies and establishes their links with associated forms of undeclared employment, labour law violations and tax evasion. The paper reviews the legislation which has facilitated the use of letterbox firms and provides examples of how letterbox firms operate in practice. The outcome is a series of potential policy and enforcement solutions which could be adopted to identify and tackle fraudulent letterbox companies. Overall, the intention is to stimulate the thoughts of participants attending the European Platform for Undeclared Work seminar on “How to identify and tackle fraudulent letterbox companies” (Brussels, 30 November 2017).
