• Paradise Papers Expose “Cleverest Ways of Exploiting” Offshore Tax Havens by GOP & Democratic Donors

    https://democracynow.org - Examining the Paradise Papers, The Guardian reports seven Republican super-donors mentioned in the papers stored some of their fortunes offshore, beyond the reach of public scrutiny and tax authorities. Together, the billionaires pumped more than $350 million into the 2016 election. Some are well-known backers of conservative causes, like casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and Charles and David Koch. Another investigation focuses on Democratic donor James Simons, who spent $11 million to back Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Simons is the founder of Renaissance Technologies, the world’s most profitable hedge fund.

Secrecy Score: 74% Tax Haven Status: Small #8 Germany Between $2.81 to $3.38 trillion of tax exempt interest-bearing assets held by non-residents as of August 2013. Germany does not sufficiently exchange tax-related information with a multitude of other jurisdictions and despite recent progress with its anti-money laundering framework, major loopholes and many implementation deficits still exist Secrecy Score: 56% Tax Haven Status: Huge but Shifty #7 Lebanon Many members of the population are high-net worth individuals. Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006.

PANAMA CITY — An anonymous person from a Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca, has leaked millions of documents describing how some of the world's richest hide money in offshore havens. Although the spotlight is currently on Panama, tax havens like Panama exist all over the world. People use them to circumvent regulations that protect transparency, as well as to avoid paying taxes in their home countries. Shell companies are often established in cities and countries that have lax rules governing transparency and financial disclosure, or more lenient criminal laws. Using tax havens isn't always about paying less taxes. Wealth isn't necessarily kept within tax haven countries. Often such places only serve as addresses for shell companies, which exist solely on paper, and are created for as little as US$1,000, reported Vice in a 2014 article. On paper, these shell companies act as the intermediaries that own the wealth, whether that asset is a painting or a Swiss bank account. Because of the complex organizational structure of these shell companies, it's very difficult to figure out who a company actually belongs to. Setting up a shell company is not illegal and its existence is not always for a nefarious reason. A shell company may be established as a way to for one to save up funds to open a business. It may also act as a front for a project that a well-known company wants to keep from the public's eye until it's ready. According to Vox, Apple for example, may have created a shell company called SixtyEight Research as a front for a car project. However, these shells are often used as tax or legal loopholes, as setting up a shell company doesn't require much identification, which allows their ultimate owners to evade scrutiny. UC Berkeley economics professor Gabriel Zucman estimates that there is least US$7.6 trillion kept in offshore tax havens. However, due to the nature of tax havens, it's difficult to know for sure what the true amount is. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

"Where do multinationals pay taxes and how much?" Gaining insight from international tax experts, Backlight takes a look at tax havens, the people who live there and the routes along which tax is avoided globally. Those routes go by resounding names like 'Cayman Special', 'Double Irish', and 'Dutch Sandwich'. A financial world operates in the shadows surrounded by a high level of secrecy. A place where sizeable capital streams travel the world at the speed of light and avoid paying tax. The Tax Free Tour is an economic thriller mapping the systemic risk for governments and citizens alike. Is this the price we have to pay for globalised capitalism? At the same time, the free online game "Taxodus" by Femke Herregraven is launched. In the game, the player can select the profile of a multinational and look for the global route to pay as little tax as possible.

Globalization is a word who everybody knows. As a result of Globalization international laws getting implemented who officially care about topics like anty money laundering, tax fraud, and terrorism financing. However, the truth behind is the implementing of a total control system who makes everybody's financial movements simply visible. The newest invention of the global control system is called „Common Reporting Standards“ (CRS). 100 countries worldwide signed this agreement. +++ Whats CRS ? +++ Simply explained, everybody who owns a bank account outside his country will be automatically reported to his home countries tax authorities. This means no matter if you own a private or corporate account outside your country your foreign bank will automatically report all your bank transactions, turnovers, incomes etc. to your home country. The bank secrecy as we know is officially history. CRS is a resident based reporting law. The bank secrecy was implemented to keep anybody's privacy and furthermore protect assets from governments especially because governments are often unpredictable. Situations like war, financial crises, currency change, fall of a union like the USSR etc. are common and can happen at any time. Brexit, Syria Crisis, Ukraine war, Refugee crisis, Terror etc are floating our news. The world countries are in the highest debts ever reported. No wonder a law like CRS is on is the way and starts 2017/18 To keep your assets protected and keep your privacy the only legal way is to change your resident to the countries like Dubai who offer a 0% tax rate plus a strong banking system and furthermore do not share any banking data of their residents. We assist in getting your resident status in the UAE and protect your assets also in the future. Our world's financial system is not made to be forever.

A trove of 13.4 million records exposes ties between Russia and U.S. President Donald Trump’s billionaire commerce secretary, the secret dealings of the chief fundraiser for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the offshore interests of the queen of England and more than 120 politicians around the world. The leaked documents, dubbed the Paradise Papers, show how deeply the offshore financial system is entangled with the overlapping worlds of political players, private wealth and corporate giants, including Apple, Nike, Uber and other global companies that avoid taxes through increasingly imaginative bookkeeping maneuvers. One offshore web leads to Trump’s commerce secretary, private equity tycoon Wilbur Ross, who has a stake in a shipping company that has received more than $68 million in revenue since 2014 from a Russian energy company co-owned by the son-in-law of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In all, the offshore ties of more than a dozen Trump advisers, Cabinet members and major donors appear in the leaked data. The new files come from two offshore services firms as well as from 19 corporate registries maintained by governments in jurisdictions that serve as waystations in the global shadow economy. The leaks were obtained by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and a network of more than 380 journalists in 67 countries. https://www.icij.org/investigations/paradise-papers/paradise-papers-exposes-donald-trump-russia-links-and-piggy-banks-of-the-wealthiest-1-percent/ The Official Lionel Nation Store: http://www.cafepress.com/theofficiallionelnationstore Sign up for Lionel's Newsletter and Truth Warrior manifestos. http://lionelmedia.com/2015/05/04/information-is-the-currency-of-the-21st-century-lionel-2010-ce/ Subscribe to Lionel YouTube Channel – http://www.youtube.com/LionelY2K Official Lionel Website: http://www.lionelmedia.com Twitter – http://www.twitter.com/lionelmedia Instagram – http://www.instagram.com/lionelmedia/ Periscope — https://www.periscope.tv/LionelNation/ Email – lionel@lionelmedia.com Lionel Bio: http://lionelmedia.com/about-lionel/ Lionel Nation Google+ – https://plus.google.com/u/0/117173180841470374058 The Lebron Law Firm Website – http://www.lebronfirm.com Lionel Nation podcasts on iTunes – http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/lionel-nation/id1015647476 Lionel Nation podcasts on audioBoom – http://audioboom.com/lionelmedia Lionel Nation podcasts on Stitcher – http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/lionel-nation Official Facebook Fan Page – http://www.facebook.com/lionelfanpage The Lebron Law Firm Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/lebronfirm The Lebron Law Firm Twitter – http://www.twitter.com/lebronfirm

‘파라다이스페이퍼스’ 조세도피 파일 또 유출..세계가 긴장 Some of the world's biggest names are under scrutiny... with the "Paradise Papers," the fifth major leak in the last four years... lifting the lid on extensive offshore dealings. Such leaks have lead to hundreds of political figures being driven out the office in the past. Our Lee Jeong-yeon tells us more. A trove of leaked documents has left some of the biggest names in politics, entertainment, and sport, feeling a tad uncomfortable. The project called 'Paradise Papers,' exposes sheltered wealth,.. hidden in offshore accounts to avoid paying tax. The material comes from some 13-million files, the majority of which come from offshore law firm Appleby. They were obtained by German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. The Guardian, BBC and New York Times are among some 100 media groups jointly investigating the papers. The top names so far on the shared list of more than 130-million include: The Queen of England... her private estate invested some ten million pounds offshore in the Cayman Islands. U.S. President Donald Trump's cabinet members, donors, and advisors are shown to have extensive offshore dealings in a firm that's linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin's son-in-law. The key moneyman of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is also linked to offshore schemes in a tax-avoiding trust. Some other household names include multinational corporations, including Nike and Apple. These Paradise Papers, coming in at one-point-four terabytes, are second on the list of such exposures in terms of size, coming after the Panama Papers leaked last year. Such disclosures have lead to hundreds of investigations worldwide, forcing politicians and even prime ministers out of office in the past. The most recent leak applies pressure on world leaders, including Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, and Theresa May, who have all pledged to crack down on tax evasion schemes.

Queen's private estate sent millions of pounds to Bermuda and Cayman Islands tax haven and invested in BrightHouse hire-purchase retailer that is accused of exploiting the poor. Around £10million of the Queen's private money has been invested in overseas accounts in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, the 'Paradise Papers' have revealed. The Duchy Of Lancaster, which pays the Queen and handles her estates, has invested in retailers including BrightHouse, which has recently come under fire for exploitation of vulnerable customers. The duchy says it was unaware of its £3,000 stake in BrightHouse, which it bought 12 years, ago, while large sums were also ploughed into off-licence chain Threshers, which has since gone bust. The 13.4million Paradise Papers files expose the ways that the rich and powerful are protecting their wealth using a web of offshore accounts. Despite no tax advantages being gained by investing the Queen's money offshore, the news is likely to fuel arguments that greater controls need to be placed on royal spending. BrightHouse, which sells furniture and household appliances, has been accused of overcharging customers and hard-selling to people with learning disabilities. It recently had to pay back £14.8million in compensation to a quarter of 250,000 people. The Queen is not believed to have any direct knowledge of the investments. The Paradise Papers are a collection of 13.4million documents that reveal a number of high profile figures, including the Queen and Donald Trump's commerce secretary, linked to offshore tax havens. The secret dossier was leaked by German news organisation Süddeutsche Zeitung, which revealed the equally explosive Panama Papers last year, that then called on the help of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to aide its probe. The dossier has revealed how the figures and organisations use schemes involving trusts and shell companies to protect their fortunes from tax officials. The majority of the data comes from Appleby, a leading legal firm based in Bermuda. Appleby helps companies set up in overseas countries that have low or non-existent tax rates. However, while the firm leaked the information it refuses to name its source. Source: BBC Founded in the 13th century, the Duchy is a unique portfolio of land, property and assets held in trust for the sovereign. These range from office blocks in The Strand to holidays homes, Bolingbroke Castle and a swathe of the tidal mudflats in Lincolnshire. The Queen is not entitled to touch the capital of the estate but profits from the property empire go into the Privy Purse, providing a ‘private' source of income for the monarch. The Queen is entitled to spend the money as she wishes but also uses it to help support members of her family, including Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex in lieu of their official duties as members of the Royal Family are no longer entitled to Civil List payments. She voluntarily pays income tax on the revenue she receives. Other figures embroiled in the Paradise Papers include Lord Ashcroft and Donald Trump's commerce secretary, Wilbur L Ross Jr. Today's revelations are only the beginning of the scandal - with more figures set to be named during the coming week as more documents are released. The world's top financial institutions are still reeling from last year's enormous Panama Papers data leak revealed how Vladimir Putin's inner circle and a 'dirty dozen' list of world leaders were using offshore tax havens to hide their wealth. A host of celebrities, sports stars, British politicians and the global rich were implicated in that release. The 11million files contained more data than the amount stolen by former CIA contractor Edward Snowden in 2013. #Queen's #private #estate #sent #millions #of #pounds #to #Bermuda #and #Cayman #Islands #tax #haven #and #invested #in #BrightHouse #hire-purchase #retailer #that #is #accused #of #exploiting #the #poor
