Some important lessons from the #PandoraPapers, thread 🧵
documents.worldbank.org/en/publication…
1. The #PandoraPapers confirm that #BeneficialOwnership is the mother of all sins, and allows #IllicitFinancialFlows.
2. The #PandoraPapers confirm the importance of focusing on the facilitators - those who enable corruption, tax avoidance/evasion and financial crimes. This is not new and has already been highlighted by the @FACTIpanel and others.

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This section is called: Building A Fair System of International Trade for Our Worker. Only one party has a specific plan for rebuilding the great American #MiddleClass. ..the other has a loyalty pledge to a lying con man. 1/11
For too long, the global trading system has failed to keep its promises to American workers. Too many corporations have rushed to outsource jobs, and too many countries have broken their promises to be honest and transparent partners. 2/11 #DemPartyPlatform #GlobalTrade
The #COVID19 pandemic has shown the risks of relying too heavily on global supply chains, as shutdowns and shortages have created chaos for workers and consumers and made our public health response even more challenging. 3/11 #DemPartyPlatform #Shutdowns

1/5 New @CEPII_Paris working paper on #taxevasion with @VVicard and A. Guillin cepii.fr/CEPII/fr/publi…
We employ a standard gravity framework to quantify abnormal stocks of FDI and portfolio securities over 2009-2017 for up to 236 jurisdictions.
2/5 we provide evidence that about 40% of global asset are abnormal stocks and that: (a) the bulk of international assets in tax havens are `abnormal', i.e unexplained by standard gravity factors; (b) there is a strong heterogeneity among jurisdictions,
3/5 Heterogeneity on the #Map: the larger a country, the more their international financial exchanges are NOT driven by economic and geographic factors.

My paper on #taxevasion and #inequality in Spain is online! I estimate evasion in the Spanish income tax in the early 2000s (2001-04), with microdata from @IEF_ES. Here are some main points: (1/6)
Evasion in capital incomes was very high, especially for financial flows and at the top of the income distribution. The top ten percent of the taxpayers are estimated to report 50-60% of their real incomes of this sort. (2/6)
Therefore, fraud had a regressive impact: the rich evaded more, making the tax less progressive and redistributive than it otherwise would have been. For example, evasion reduced the redistributive impact of the tax by 33% in 2001. (3/6)

I'm a teacher at Al Ameen Public school Edappally, Ernakulam. Every month the management forcefully collects blank cheques from us. Then they credit the CBSE recommended salary to the teacher's account. Within minutes, they debit around 9000 from our accounts and evade the tax.
When I complained about this corruption, to the CM n enquiry came, the manager Siyad koker, Academic counselor Thahar, Principal Lekshmi Haridas and Vice principal Shafeena Nisam called me alone to the room and threatened me and terminated me from service.
As a teacher I believe it's my duty to voice against the exploitation of teachers by the school management. It's our duty to stop this financial fraud. They are evading large amounts of income tax for the past decades. I hope the authority would look into this matter.

#TaxEvasion & #TaxAvoidance are not laws of nature, but policy choices. We can choose to:
🕵️‍♂️ allow secrecy
💸 lightly regulated the tax avoidance industry
🌪️allow tax competition to drive a #RaceToTheBottom

The alternatively could be to choose to:
🧮 record wealth in registries
🏛️ regulate #TaxAvoidance industry

Looks like they are going to get more receipts!
Court orders law firm to identify clients who used off-shore accounts to hide money! #taxevasion #MoneyLaundering
#ButNothingsHappening accountingtoday.com/news/court-rul…
The IRS convicted one of their clients for tax evasion from 1996-2000 by using the firms services to set up off-shore accounts & shell companies. So the IRS filed a "John Doe" summons for the records of all their similar customers from 1995-2017!
The law firm has lost it's legal fight as of last week & will have to provide the identities of the clients to the IRS. Piercing their claim of attorney client privilege as they were acting as accountants/tax preparers not attorneys! mahanyertl.com/2019/john-doe-…

🔥DEUTSCHE🔥

Deutsche Bank employees charged with spotting ILLEGAL activity *repeatedly* encountered transactions suspicious of MONEY LAUNDERING by @realDonaldTrump, his kids, and Kushner.🧐

Bank executives *never* filed reports, as required by law.🤬

🔥KUSH🔥

A longtime anti-money laundering specialist at Deutsche Bank found money moving from Kushner Co to #Russians🇷🇺and recommended reporting the transactions (they weren’t).

Deutsche Bank has laundered BILLIONS of dollars for Russians.🙄

nyti.ms/2VMn62R
One Deutsche Bank employee was FIRED for trying to report Trump and Kush’s shady transactions with #Russians🇷🇺to the government.🤬

“They attempted to try to silence me,” she said. “I’m at peace because I know that I did the right thing.”

Todos os anos a UE perde cerca 1 bilião de euros através de esquemas de fraude e #evasãofiscal. A Resolução ontem aprovada no #EPlenary contém medidas concretas de combate à evasão e elisão fiscal.
#TaxJustice #TaxEvasion #Whistleblowers
A Resolução apela aos Estados Membros que revoguem de forma célere os regimes de #vistosgold, porque potenciais benefícios destes não compensam os riscos de branqueamento de capitais e evasão fiscal.
A resolução reconhece pela primeira vez 7 Estados Membros como paraísos fiscais: Bélgica, Chipre, Hungria, Irlanda, Luxemburgo, Malta e Holanda.

#ForeignAgent! #RussiaCollusion! Pay-to-Play Scandals! #TaxFraud! #TaxEvasion! Lying on sworn, Federal forms! Intentional misuse of donated funds!

Why are we still waiting for action,  @RepMeadows & @RepCummings? AG Barr? Huber?

Too busy focused on Fake Trump investigations...
Cl¡ntons acted as foreign agent for multiple countries, engaged in pay-for-play, brokered pharmaceuticals, $$$, uranium, etc. thru #ClintonFoundation in exchange for favors, and used CF as a personal "piggy bank."

$400M - $2.5B that may be subject to taxation & incorrectly used!
501c3 charity should take ≤ 15% in administrative costs & give 85% of money taken in to actual charity work. Only 40% of the money taken in by the CF went to charity work. 60% went to the Cl¡ntons & the CF in administrative costs. Money decreased when they had no influence!
