Black Economy Taskforce

The Taskforce is developing innovative policies to combat the black economy.


As part of this work, the Taskforce is investigating measures to reduce the role of cash in the economy and further encourage the uptake of digital payments.

Following the release of the Interim Report in March 2017, the Taskforce embarked on a national road show.  Subsequently, a further 54 policy ideas were released for consultation in August 2017.  We lodged a submission to the Additional Policy Ideas consultation, and provided technical assistance to the Taskforce.

The Taskforce is due to submit a final report and recommendations to Government towards the end of 2017.
