We welcome PhD proposals in the area of AI and taxation.
The use of AI spans across disciplines and taxation is no exception. AI can improve tax administration and also open doors to new avenues for tax policy. We are currently in the early stages of AI implementation in the tax field. Use of AI to develop, analyse, interpret, and enforce tax rules brings both opportunities and risks. It must be guided by ethical frameworks and prioritise fundamental public values such as privacy and security of financial data. Application of AI holds promise for greater efficiency in dispute resolution, compliance, and administration, but must ensure fair treatment of taxpayers.
We welcome research enquiries concerning the implications of AI in any aspect of taxation, including, tax administration, international tax co-operation, tax dispute resolution, tax compliance, tax planning, tax data visualisation, fraud detection and tax policy design just to name a few.
This project is open to UK and international students starting in October 2022.

Additional experience which is relevant to the area of research is also advantageous.
