    Recent studies of international banking data suggest that a staggering amount of global financial wealth (between $US 10 and 20 trillion) is held in "offshore financial centres" or "tax havens", with over $US 5 trillion of such financial wealth being unreported or unidentified. This is despite the fact that governments and international organizations, including the OECD and G20, have aggressively targeted offshore tax evasion since the 2008 financial crisis, with the G20 declaring in 2009 that "the era of banking secrecy is over". In this lecture we will explore the following questions: * What is the nature of the international tax evasion problem, particularly for Canada? * How has the Canadian government enhanced our tax laws and treaty networks to stem the outflow of money? * Is th...

Recent studies of international banking data suggest that a staggering amount of global financial wealth (between $US 10 and 20 trillion) is held in "offshore financial centres" or "tax havens", with over $US 5 trillion of such financial wealth being unreported or unidentified. This is despite the fact that governments and international organizations, including the OECD and G20, have aggressively targeted offshore tax evasion since the 2008 financial crisis, with the G20 declaring in 2009 that "the era of banking secrecy is over". In this lecture we will explore the following questions: * What is the nature of the international tax evasion problem, particularly for Canada? * How has the Canadian government enhanced our tax laws and treaty networks to stem the outflow of money? * Is the Canada Revenue Agency doing anything to bring tax evaders to justice? (or is that the job of the CBC?) * Is the era of banking secrecy really over? Presented by Professor Geoffrey Loomer, Schulich School of Law on February 12, 2014. MINI LAW SCHOOL is a free series of engaging public lectures that will give you a taste of what a legal education is all about. There's no cost to attend - and better still, no tests to write - just come with a curious ear to listen to fascinating lectures from some of the law school's most talented faculty.

What is OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTRE? What does OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTRE mean? OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTRE meaning - OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTRE definition - OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTRE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. An offshore financial centre (OFC) is a small, low-tax jurisdiction specializing in providing corporate and commercial services to non-resident offshore companies, and for the investment of offshore funds. The term was coined in the 1980s. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) defines an offshore financial centre as "a country or jurisdiction that provides financial services to nonresidents on a scale that is incommensurate with the size and the financing of its domestic economy." Although information is still limited, there is strong evidence that OFCs captured a significant amount of global financial flows and functions both as back doors and partners of leading financial centre especially since the 1970s. Whether a financial centre is to be characterized as "offshore" is a question of degree. Indeed, the IMF Working Paper cited above notes that its definition of an offshore centre would include the United Kingdom and the United States, which are ordinarily counted as "onshore" because of their large populations and inclusion in international organisations such as the G20 and OECD. The more nebulous term "tax haven" is often applied to offshore centres, leading to confusion between the two concepts. In Tolley's International Initiatives Affecting Financial Havens the author in the Glossary of Terms defines an "offshore financial centre" in forthright terms as "a politically correct term for what used to be called a tax haven." However, he then qualifies this by adding, "The use of this term makes the important point that a jurisdiction may provide specific facilities for offshore financial centres without being in any general sense a tax haven." A 1981 report by the United States Internal Revenue Service concluded: "a country is a tax haven if it looks like one and if it is considered to be one by those who care." With its connotations of financial secrecy and tax avoidance, "tax haven" is not always an appropriate term for offshore financial centres, many of which have no statutory banking secrecy, and most of which have adopted tax information exchange protocols to allow foreign countries to investigate suspected tax evasion. Views of offshore financial centres tend to be polarised. Proponents suggest that reputable offshore financial centres play a legitimate and integral role in international finance and trade, and that their zero-tax structure allows financial planning and risk management and makes possible some of the cross-border vehicles necessary for global trade, including financing for aircraft and shipping or reinsurance of medical facilities. Proponents point to the tacit support of offshore centres by the governments of the United States (which promotes offshore financial centres by the continuing use of the Foreign Sales Corporation (FSC)) and United Kingdom (which actively promotes offshore finance in Caribbean dependent territories to help them diversify their economies and to facilitate the British Eurobond market). Opponents view them as draining tax revenues away from developed countries by allowing tax arbitrage, and rendering capital flows into and out of developing countries opaque. Very few commentators express neutral views. Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a U.S. government agency, when lending into countries with underdeveloped corporate law, often requires the borrower to form an offshore vehicle to facilitate the loan financing. One could argue that US external aid statutorily cannot even take place without the formation of offshore entities. Offshore finance has been the subject of increased attention since 2000 and even more so since the April 2009 G20 meeting, when heads of state resolved to "take action" against non-cooperative jurisdictions. Initiatives spearheaded by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) and the International Monetary Fund have had a significant effect on the offshore finance industry.

http://www.nomadcapitalist.com Many location independent entrepreneurs and digital nomads leave their home countries every year, never giving much thought to how or where they'll pay tax. So, where do digital nomads pay tax? It turns out that it might be in your home country. If you don't take the proper steps and fill out the proper forms to become tax non-resident and establish a new "center of life" somewhere outside of your home, you may be on the hook for taxes at home. In fact, a few location independent types discovered this YEARS after leaving, and ended up paying big past tax bills. Ouch! Andrew explains how to avoid "The Nomad Trap" and make sure you LEGALLY avoid paying tax to a country you don't live in, as well as how to make sure you don't get in the tax net somewhere else. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom. Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.

In their investigation, the Free Beacon looked at a bunch of the SPLC’s financial forms and found that they had accumulated $328 million in net assets in 2015, which was the most recent tax form they found for the ‘nonprofit.’ And those same financial forms showed that the SPLC had business interests in the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda. In other words, the ‘nonprofit’ was funneling money offshore. The Resident breaks it down.

Apple boss Tim Cook disagrees. He insists there is no shifting going on, and that profits earned by Apple's Irish operations are down to the hard work and expertise of almost 4,000 staff in Cork.

Latest research from Timetric finds that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the Asia Pacific region and that Singapore will overtake Switzerland as the largest global offshore private banking market by 2020. The firm writes: "With Assets under Management (AuM) of US$550 billion at the end of 2011, new research reveals that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the world, and will be the largest offshore private banking market by 2020. This reflects the significant disparity in the performance of the HNWI sectors in the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world, and suggests a bright future for HNWIs in the region." The research covered the high net worth individual (HNWI) populations in 13 Asia Pacific countries, focusing on HNWI performance between 2007 (the peak before the global financial crisis) and the end of 2011. The firm claims that this enables them to determine how well each country's HNWIs have performed through the crisis. Singapore has seen its AUM rise from US$50 billion in 2000 to US$550 billion in 2011. The firm says: "Singapore will benefit from the movement of funds away from Switzerland, Luxemburg and the Caribbean over the next seven years, and by 2020 will be the largest global offshore banking market by AuM."

Southern Poverty Law Center Transfers $Millions in Cash to Offshore Entities The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its "hate group" designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show. Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of "fighting hate and bigotry" using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy. The Southern Poverty Law Center is perhaps best known for its "hate map," a collection of organizations the nonprofit deems "domestic hate groups" that lists mainstream conservative organizations alongside racist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and is often referenced in the media. A gunman opened fire at the Washington, D.C., offices of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 after seeing it listed as an "anti-gay" group on SPLC's website. The SPLC has turned into a fundraising powerhouse, recording more than $50 million in contributions and $328 million in net assets on its 2015 Form 990, the most recently available tax form from the nonprofit. SPLC's Form 990-T, its business income tax return, from the same year shows that they have "financial interests" in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda. No information is available beyond the acknowledgment of the interests at the bottom of the form. However, the Washington Free Beacon discovered forms from 2014 that shed light on some of the Southern Poverty Law Center's transfers to foreign entities. The SPLC's Form 8865, a Return of U.S. Persons With Respect to Certain Foreign Partnerships, from 2014 shows that the nonprofit transferred hundreds of thousands to an account located in the Cayman Islands. SPLC lists Tiger Global Management LLC, a New York-based private equity financial firm, as an agent on its form. The form shows a foreign partnership between the SPLC and Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P., a pooled investment fund in the Cayman Islands. SPLC transferred $960,000 in cash on Nov. 24, 2014 to Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P, its records show. The SPLC's Form 926, a Return by a U.S. Transferor of Property to a Foreign Corporation, from 2014 shows additional cash transactions that the nonprofit had sent to offshore funds. The SPLC reported a $102,007 cash transfer on Dec. 24, 2014 to BPV-III Cayman X Limited, a foreign entity located in the Cayman Islands. The group then sent $157,574 in cash to BPV-III Cayman XI Limited on Dec. 31, 2014, an entity that lists the same PO Box address in Grand Cayman as the previous transfer. The nonprofit pushed millions more into offshore funds at the beginning of 2015. On March 1, 2015, SPLC sent $2,200,000 to an entity incorporated in Canana Bay, Cayman Islands, according to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) records and run by a firm firm based in Greenwich, Ct. Another $2,200,000 cash transfer was made on the same day to another fund whose business is located at the same address as the previous fund in the Cayman Islands, according to SEC records. No information is contained on its interests in Bermuda on the 2014 forms. SPLC's financial stakes in the British Virgin Islands were not acknowledged until its 2015 tax form. Lucinda Chappelle, a principal at Jackson Thornton, the public accounting firm in Montgomery, Ala., that prepared the SPLC's tax forms, said she does not discuss client matters and hung up the phone when the Free Beacon contacted her in an attempt to get the most updated forms from the group in relation to its foreign business dealings. Tax experts expressed confusion when being told of the transfer. "I've never known a US-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts," said Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of Pacific Human Capital, a California-based nonprofit consulting firm. "My impression based on prior interactions is that they have a small, modestly paid staff, and were regarded by most in the industry as frugal and reliable. I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts. It is a huge red flag and would have been completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who I ever worked with." "It is unethical for any US-based charity to invest large sums of money overseas," said Casil. "I know of no legitimate reason for any US-based nonprofit to put money in overseas, unregulated bank accounts." "It seems extremely unusual for a ‘501(c)(3)' concentrating upon reducing poverty in the American South to have multiple bank accounts in tax haven nations," Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street analyst and financial advisor who helped uncover a 2009 financial scandal at General Electric,

Richard Hay presents the case for the necessity of offshore centres: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-future-of-international-financial-centres Richard Hay presents the case for the importance, and especially the trustworthiness, of International Financial Centres. Whilst looking at the specific functions and roles that these centres occupy, he posits exactly what the world at large has to learn from them, and what they stand to lose without them. This is the second lecture from the Long Finance Spring Conference 2014. With three nearby Crown Dependencies and six overseas territories promoting themselves as 'international financial centres', the UK seems to value offshore centres. Yet during current financial crises these havens are easy scapegoats. At the 2011 G20 Summit in Cannes, President Nicolas Sarkozy stated, "We don't want any more tax havens. Our message is clear, countries that remain tax havens ... will be shunned by the international community". But do these centres add value? And what of onshore havens such as Delaware, Monaco, Luxembourg ... London? This symposium will explore the good, the bad and the ugly -- savings, crimes and tax. We will look at how offshore centres do add value, their dangers and how things might evolve to something, perhaps "mid-shore". The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-future-of-international-financial-centres Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

And we’re going to be announcing something — I would say over the next two or three weeks — that will be phenomenal.” swiftly on legislation to overhaul the country’s tax code, urging them not to wait until the end of the month. “Republicans must start the Tax Reform/Tax Cut legislation ASAP. Don’t wait until the end of September. Needed now more than ever. Hurry!” Trump wrote on Twitter. raise the nation’s debt limit. historic tax plan that many Americans will appreciate.

The framework—a joint product of the Trump administration and Republican leadership—calls for lowering the corporate rate from 35 to 20 percent. It would also bring down the rate for so-called pass-through businesses to 25 percent; currently, they are taxed under the individual code. f Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do not make their sweep payment to the Treasury on March 31, the two mortgage giants can begin rebuilding their capital base which protects taxpayers from ever having to bail them out in case of an economic downturn. In the same executive order that President Trump signs to end the Net Worth Sweep on March 31, he can also remove the “executive privilege” American Dream of home ownership because without Fannie and Freddie, no U.S. underwriter has been willing to offer the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage that millions of first-time home-buyers need to be able to both make the required down payment and afford the subsequent required monthly mortgage payments.

The Panama Papers shocked the world this week when a massive leak of 11.5 million tax documents exposed the secret dealings of hundreds of thousands of people, including world leaders and celebrities, and how they use shady financial mechanisms to avoid paying taxes and hide their wealth. Linking at least 12 current and former heads of state and 143 politicians to illicit financial transactions, the documents revealed how Mossack Fonseca, a Panama-based law firm, allegedly used banks, law firms and offshore shell companies, from 1977 to the end of 2015, to help hide its clients assets. While the disclosures have since led to the resignation of one world leader, Sigmundur Davio Gunnlaugsson, the Icelandic prime minister; the problem goes beyond mere individuals. The Panama Papers have exposed that most of the work Mossack Fonseca and the rest of the wealth-management industry do is perfectly legal. On this special edition of Counting the Cost, we take a closer look at tax havens and the legality behind them. Alex Cobham, a director of research at the Tax Justice Network, joins the programme to discuss the loopholes that allow tax-dodging. Stewart Patton, a US tax attorney based in Belize City, discusses the possible fallout for tax havens following the release of the Panama Papers. We also speak to James S Henry, a senior fellow at Columbia University's Center for Sustainable Investment, about the absence of American billionaires and companies on the leaked list and how the US, the world's biggest economy, is surprisingly a top tax haven.

What is OFFSHORE INVESTMENT? What does OFFSHORE INVESTMENT mean? OFFSHORE INVESTMENT meaning - OFFSHORE INVESTMENT definition - OFFSHORE INVESTMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Offshore investment is the keeping of money in a jurisdiction other than one's country of residence. Offshore jurisdictions are a commonly accepted means of reducing the taxes levied in most countries to both large and small-scale investors alike. Poorly regulated offshore domiciles have served historically as havens for tax evasion, money laundering, or to conceal or protect illegally acquired money from law enforcement in the investor's country. However, the modern, well-regulated offshore centres allow legitimate investors to take advantage of higher rates of return or lower rates of tax on that return offered by operating via such domiciles. The advantage to offshore investment is that such operations are both legal and less costly than those offered in the investor's country - or "onshore". Locations favored by investors for low rates of tax are known as offshore financial centers or (sometimes) tax havens. Offshore centers are widely used and are accessible to anyone who can meet the minimum investment amount or pay the obligatory fees required to open such an entity. Investopedia indicates that, "More than half of the world's assets and investments are held in offshore jurisdictions and many well-recognized companies have investment opportunities in offshore locales." Payment of less tax is the driving force behind most 'offshore' activity. Due to the use of offshore centers, investors are able to conduct investment activities in a more profitable fashion. Often, taxes levied by an investor's home country are critical to the profitability of any given investment. Using offshore-domiciled special purpose mechanisms (or vehicles) an investor may reduce the amount of tax payable, allowing the investor to achieve greater profitability overall. Another reason why 'offshore' investment is considered superior to 'onshore' investment is because it is less regulated, and the behavior of the offshore investment provider, whether he be a banker, fund manager, trustee or stock-broker, is freer than it could be in a more regulated environment. Offshore investing includes investment strategies outside of an investor's home country. Investment opportunities in money-market, bond and equity assets are available through offshore companies. One may also charter an offshore corporation to provide a legal personality, limited liability, transferable shares, a centralized management, and shared ownership. In some cases the investment advantages of such a corporation are offset by legal, corporate and account registration fees imposed by the country in which the offshore account is established. Further, the officers of the corporation may be required to establish residence, own real estate, or meet an investment minimum (depending upon the country this may range up to $1 million). An advantage which accrues from establishing a corporate structure is that although a citizen may be proscribed from establishing an offshore account, they can establish a corporation that can do so. Motivations for investment offshore include: 1. Tax advantages - tax regulations often contain provisions to protect against taxation by multiple jurisdictions which can be exploited for legal tax reductions. Nations intentionally attract business investments through lower tax rates. The corporate-tax trend over the period from 1980 to 2010 has trended lower, with the top rate in OECD countries (excluding America) moving from 51% to 32%. Investing in such an environment can improve the investor's rate of return on investment. 2. Investment diversification - risk can be managed by diversifying investments among a wider range of options than are available for onshore investment.
