    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.

    James S. Henry introduces a hot topic: offshore banking. The G8 and G20 are planning meetings to discuss it. Even the Netherlands is a tax haven for certain types of companies. The huge amount of numbers and graphs tells us that we are confronted with nothing less than a global tax haven industry. For example, Apple makes 100 billion dollars a year of tax free profits because of the games private bankers know how to play. In medieval times people couldn't hide their wealth when tax collectors came to inventory it. Nowadays they can. It is said that 64 percent of the global profits are parked offshore, for an important part by multinationals from the first world. The third world is the victim of this practise.

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.

The world of offshore accounts, shell companies and tax havens extends far beyond the fictional legal thrillers you see on the silver screen. Offshore tax havens — countries or territories where taxes are assessed at a low or nonexistent rate — are very much a reality, and U.S.-based multinational corporations play a starring role in the real-life drama. According to a 2016 report by Citizens for Tax Justice, 367 companies in the Fortune 500 operate subsidiaries in tax-haven nations around the globe. Just like major corporations, individuals can take advantage of the web of financial loopholes and legislation that foreign countries offer. Click through to discover 12 of these tax havens, which might help you pay less on your tax bill this year or at some point in the future. BERMUDA Bermuda earned the dubious distinction of ranking No. 1 on Oxfam’s 2016 list of the world’s worst corporate tax havens. Bermuda features a zero percent corporate tax rate, as well as no personal income tax rate. Due to the lack of corporate taxes, U.S. multinational companies have raked in huge amounts of money in Bermuda, notably recording profits of $80 billion in 2012. That amount exceeded their profits reported in Japan, China, France and Germany combined. NETHERLANDS The most popular tax haven among the Fortune 500 is the Netherlands, with more than half of the Fortune 500 reporting at least one subsidiary there. Oxfam’s list of the worst corporate tax havens placed this Benelux country at No. 3. National governments often use tax incentives to lure businesses to invest in their country. However, far too often tax incentives have been found to be ineffective, inefficient and costly, according to Oxfam. In the Netherlands, one such tax incentive cost an estimated 1.2 billion euros in 2016. That is equivalent to 7.6 percent of what the Netherlands receives in total income from corporation tax. LUXEMBOURG Like the Netherlands, Luxembourg is one of the three countries that form the Benelux countries, which also have a reputation for being tax shelters. Luxembourg’s tax-haven status comes from its business-friendly laws that allow international companies to park portions of their business in the nation and dodge billions in tax bills. Tax-friendly characteristics include tax incentives, zero percent withholding taxes and evidence of large-scale profit shifting, according to Oxfam. CAYMAN ISLANDS The Cayman Islands offer “probably the biggest (tax) loophole now for individuals as well as the multinational corporations,” said Crystal Stranger, Los Angeles-based tax operations director at 1st Tax Inc. The Cayman Islands come in at No. 2 on Oxfam’s list of the worst tax havens. The Caymans are a British Overseas Territory, a designation that seems to be a common thread running through several tax havens on the Oxfam list. The Caymans and other countries with laws that allow a corporation to be formed and retain assets without paying tax, Stranger said. “When held for business purposes, this is perfectly legal and not a tax-avoidance strategy,” she said. However, the tax advantages and implications are complex, and a professional is probably best equipped to handle them, she said. The tax benefits can be worthwhile to the many businesses from the U.S. and around the world that have assets in the Caymans. In 2012, American multinational companies reported $46 billion in profits from subsidiaries based in the Cayman Islands, according to a report by Citizens for Tax Justice. That compared to a gross domestic product of just $3 billion for the territory. SINGAPORE This tiny sovereign city-state was once a British colony, and now is a hub for multinational corporate subsidiaries. Like the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Singapore actually has “reasonable” nominal corporate tax rates, according to Oxfam. Yet, like those nations, Singapore still finds a way to be one of the top tax havens in the world. Singapore circumvents its “reasonable” corporate tax rates through tax incentives, lack of withholding taxes and what appears to be substantial profit shifting, according to the Oxfam report. CHANNEL ISLANDS Located between England and France, the Channel Islands host hundreds of international corporate subsidiaries. For example, Morgan Stanley alone has 33 tax haven subsidiaries in the Channel Islands, according to a report by the Citizens for Tax Justice. The Channel Islands consist of two British Crown dependencies: The Bailiwick of Jersey, consisting of Jersey The Bailiwick of Guernsey, consisting of three separate jurisdictions: Guernsey, Alderney and Sark Crown dependencies are not part of the United Kingdom, but are instead self-governing territories. Jersey’s status as a tax haven rose in the mid-20th century, when many rich British citizens moved their wealth to the island. At that time

Living in one of the best tax-free countries of the world is every entrepreneur's dream, but how to do it? While there are plenty of countries with no income tax where governments welcome people with money to live freely, actually getting into them is becoming increasingly more difficult. This is hardly a surprise, seeing that more and more businessmen are looking for ways to pay fewer taxes and even reduce them to 0. However, there's a glitch of which you need to be aware of and use that knowledge wisely. If you plan to base your business in one the countries with zero income tax, then you might be considering Kuwait, United Arab Emirates or Saudi Arabia. Or maybe you're more focused on Bermuda, Caribbean Islands or the Cayman Islands, which offer same perks - you go work there and pay no tax. But there's always a challenge and with these countries is that they're not particularly open to new foreign entrepreneurs. So which countries are the excellent flag to plant, and you don't have to wrestle with the circumstances every step of the way? There are plenty of livable countries that don’t impose income taxes on their residents, and most of them actually have territorial taxes. The good news here is you can live in Singapore or Hong Kong, make your money offshore and pay no tax for it. It's rather simple - if the income isn't generated in these countries, you won't pay tax for it. Naturally, you don't want to set up your company in a country where you have to pay territorial tax because then income taxes are inevitable. Of course, these countries are making it very hard even for high-achieving entrepreneurs to make a base there because they're aware of the value of the freedom they have. Fortunately, Malaysia, Thailand, Costa Rica, Panama etc. still haven't become as strict as Singapore or Hong Kong, so there's some leeway to take advantage of. The trick here is to plan carefully, to know what you want and how to get there. It’s all about “going where you’re treated best”. This is what the Nomad Capitalist and Andrew do best - helping entrepreneurs come up with a strategy that will give clients more freedom and help them save money on taxes.

For decades, presidents, drug smugglers and criminals have used a Panamanian law firm to hide their accounts and valuables. This is revealed in documents reviewed by media partners around the world, including NDR and WDR. A total of 370 journalists from 78 countries evaluated around 11.5 million documents in the course of their reporting on the “PanamaPapers.” An anonymous source provided the data to Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung. The paper then shared it with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and partners across the globe, including NDR and WDR. http://www.daserste.de

A story of money, secrecy and greed: a tax dodge for the wealthy dreamed up by one of the biggest accounting giants in the world KPMG Canada devised what it called an “Offshore Company Structure” for a select group of rich clients: they would claim to give away millions of dollars to a shell company supposedly out of their control and therefore wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it. In the U.S., top KPMG officials were convicted of tax evasion schemes concocted there. But in Canada, a different scheme led to a secret amnesty deal with the Canada Revenue Agency. A federal government inquiry vowing to get to the bottom of it went nowhere What was the accounting firm trying to hide? With revelations from industry insiders, internal KPMG documents and corporate records from the Isle of Man offshore tax haven, we expose the details of the scheme and unveil the names of some of the wealthy clients.

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. Leaked records show he kept much of his $8 billion fortune in an offshore private wealth fund in Bermuda in order to avoid “particularly severe” taxes that would be triggered if he tried to bring the funds onshore.

James S. Henry introduces a hot topic: offshore banking. The G8 and G20 are planning meetings to discuss it. Even the Netherlands is a tax haven for certain types of companies. The huge amount of numbers and graphs tells us that we are confronted with nothing less than a global tax haven industry. For example, Apple makes 100 billion dollars a year of tax free profits because of the games private bankers know how to play. In medieval times people couldn't hide their wealth when tax collectors came to inventory it. Nowadays they can. It is said that 64 percent of the global profits are parked offshore, for an important part by multinationals from the first world. The third world is the victim of this practise. An example from the banana industry: exporting a banana from the Cayman Islands costs 13 pence. When it arrives in the UK to be consumed, the costs have grown to 60 pence. All of this money goes to other parties than the Cayman Islands. Because of the tax havens, countries from the Third World are not able to receive the tax incomes they are entitled to. Henry even concludes that the debt problem of the third world is not a debt problem, but a tax problem. Both amount to almost the same. About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

From Her Majesty the Queen’s estate to a top US official, from a leading football club to a rock star who campaigns against poverty. They are all accused of investing vast sums of money in offshore havens, thus – perfectly legally – avoiding UK tax. The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for an inquiry into all the Paradise Papers revelations. But the government insist they are already taking action – collecting more offshore tax than Labour did when it was in power.

"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.

Part of the gift of the leaked Paradise Papers. A set of leaked documents from offshore law firm Appleby has revealed that Apple stashed $250 billion in Jersey, a tiny island off the coast of France known for being a tax haven. The tech titan apparently secretly moved its pile of overseas profits to the island after the US and various European governments cracked down on the tax strategy it's been employing since the 1980's. Apple used to rely on an arrangement called the "double Irish," which took advantage of Ireland's business-friendly tax policies.

Major US companies are moving abroad to avoid high corporate taxes. It's called corporate inversion and results in higher profits for shareholders, but a huge loss in tax revenue for the United States. How is this legal? Should corporations hold a responsibility to their home country?

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.
