According to the Preamble of the Law on Measures to Prevent Tax Fraud, the approval of the measures is aimed at improving the mechanisms for combating fraud, and at increasing legal certainty in taxpayers' dealings with the tax authorities as a way to encourage voluntary compliance and prevent fraud.
