#ParadisePapers: posa fi a l'ombra del món dels rics i les corporacions diuen Verds




A new leak of data has shocked the world of tax havens – more than 13 million Els registres de dades del despatx d'advocats Appleby van ser analitzats gairebé Periodistes 400 a través de les fronteres. Appleby és considerat un dels empreses de repòs fiscal més grans i més professionals. Per primera vegada, per tant, ara hi ha una visió de l'evasió fiscal i l'impost complex evasió. Appleby està representat a Bermuda, a les Illes Verges Britàniques, Illes Caiman, Guernsey, Illa de Man, Jersey, Maurici, Seychelles, Hong Kong i Xangai.

Sven Giegold, spokesperson for economic and financial affairs for the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament, said: “We must put an end to this shadowy world in which corporations and the rich escape the common good. The Paradise Papers unveil for the first time the most professional parts of the global tax avoidance system. Tax fairness is in a permanent global crisis. The heroic work of the journalists sheds light on a shadowy world.

“This time we have to point the finger at Britain. With its overseas territories, Great Britain dominates the map of tax havens. Britain is one of the world’s largest tax havens. Within the EU, the British government has for years been slowing down the EU’s fight against tax avoidance and money laundering. The British are particularly sceptical about the EU’s black-list of tax havens for self-protection. It takes a lot of British humour to understand that Caribbean islands with a corporate tax rate of zero percent should not be tax havens, according to the EU definition. We must make best use of the Brexit negotiations to close the UK’s tax havens.

“Despite the numerous scandals in recent years, we must not accept massive tax avoidance as an unjust normality. Every tax scandal opens up a window of opportunity for political action. There are ways to curb global tax avoidance with common European policies. The EU countries must now quickly agree on a blacklist of tax havens that is not politically biased. We also need full transparency in the taxation of large companies and a common minimum tax rate for businesses within the EU.”
