The practice of avoiding taxes by multinational corporations (MNCs) has developed into a national disgrace as well as a global issue that affects tax justice, transparency, and economic efficiency. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a doctoral student so that they can investigate the optimal solution to the problem of tax avoidance faced by MNCs as well as governments. This will be accomplished by conducting an efficient cost-benefit analysis and developing a cutting-edge interdisciplinary machine-learning technique. The anticipated results will include significant advances in boosting economic growth through the reform of tax policy in Australia, as well as globally through the comparison of tax evasion practices in different countries.
