LuxLeaks and how to unveil tax havens in Europe

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From LuxLeaks and onwards: the impressive and award-winning LuxLeaks revelations carried out by the ICIJ pointed out the problem of access to tax avoidance in the heart of Europe. But Luxembourg is not the only country with such provisions. Also other EU countries assist companies to avoid paying taxes in the country of activity, as recent research by Dutch think-tank SOMO shows. While LuxLeaks had a leak as starting point, SOMO started from scratch. Hear the methodology of both examples and learn how to unravel tax avoidance schemes.
