Following on from Ghana’s recent World Cup defeat at the hands (literally) of Uruguay’s Suárez, Khadija Sharife has just posted a blog on how Ghanaian people are probably becoming victims of cheating on a far larger scale, albeit not so visible on television sets around the world. Ghana is entering into its era of oil production. Before end-2010 the Jubilee oil field, one of Africa’s biggest offshore finds since the start of this century, could turn Ghana into the continent’s fifth largest oil-producing nation, bringing in upwards of $800 million a year. Happy days. But dig a little deeper, and you find the first ...

provides offshore legal, fiduciary and administration services. Appleby and its Group Managing Partner, Peter Bubenzer in Bermuda, issued in June 2010 an article entitled “OFCS [Offshore Financial Centers] in the Crosshairs — But Not Alone in Their Struggle to Survive.” Since Appleby operates from many offshore financial centers: Bahrain, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Jersey, London, Mauritius, Seychelles and Switzerland, the article merits a reply. Our full reply, prepared by a senior adviser to TJN, can be downloaded here . What follows is a summary. First, the Appleby ... market research, surveys and trends

Magnitudes and Measurements - taxjustice network
The size of the offshore economy is hard to measure precisely, as a result of its fragmented nature, difficulties involved in defining it, and a pervasive culture of secrecy. International efforts to measure it often focus only on narrow aspects of it. For example, much effort is expended on measuring and tackling terrorist finances or (to a lesser extent) international bribery, but little attention is paid to problems on much, much larger scales -- such as commercial transfer mispricing abuses. It is important to note that the different estimates provided below mostly do not take into account the impact on domestic tax laws of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Oil Makes Its Own Laws: Self-regulation and Flags of Convenience
The system under which offshore drilling rigs, and now oil tankers, operate was set up at the end of the second world war to ensure that the US was supplied with the cheapest possible oil without having to consider, or pay for, the consequences. The offshore drilling company Transocean celebrated the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon in a luxury hotel in Zug, Switzerland, where the company is based.  On 14 May, three weeks after the blow-out, the owners of the Deepwater rig, which was valued at $650m before the accident, were expecting the first instalment of their insurance payout: $401m. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
World's Best Tax Havens
Even if you've worked for some years trying to prevent the problems caused by tax havens, people will still ask you which places are the best in the world to shield your money from taxes. Working with the Tax Justice Network I set out to provide a definitive answer. "Best" is, of course, a pretty subjective term, so it needed definition. We used two. The first was a measure of a place's opacity, or how secret it is. There's good reason for that. Some time ago I gave up trying to define what a tax haven is, as that proved to be a pretty thankless task. Instead I suggested that unless a place is a secrecy ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Offshore banks are succumbing to international pressure and it is becoming standard practice for offshore banks to report suspicious accounts (eg, where the bank suspects that an account is not being declared) to the tax authorities. The CIA tracks payments in Europe through SWIFT and will pass information on to overseas authorities. Governments are taking increasingly concerted steps to crack down on tax evasion. Anyone needing to regularise their tax affairs, whether to avoid the most punitive penalties, or for peace of mind, or to prevent saddling their heirs with an illegal inheritance, needs to do so now before long it ...
